Improve wrapping of arguments in perlintern.pod

Commit dee6204dc made a huge improvement to the formatting of argument
lists in perlapi (except for one pesky little entry, namely caller_cx,
that is 81 columns).

But I forgot to look through perlintern.

This just looks comical:

                       struct refcounted_he * refcounted_he_new_pv(struct refcounted_he *parent,
                                                                   const char *key,
                                                                   U32 hash,
                                                                   SV *value,
                                                                   U32 flags)

On an eighty-column terminal that wraps like this:

                       struct refcounted_he * refcounted_he_new_pv(struct refcoun
ted_he *parent,
                                                                   const char *k

                                                                   SV *value,
                                                                   U32 flags)


So, for entries with individual arguments that don’t fit, this commit
wraps them like this:

                       struct refcounted_he * refcounted_he_new_pv(
                                                  struct refcounted_he *parent,
                                                  const char *key, U32 hash,

re_eval: clear lexicals in the right pad

(?{...}) deliberately doesn't introduce a new scope (so that the affects of
local() can accumulate across multiple calls to the code). This also means
that the SAVEt_CLEARSVs pushed onto the save stack by lexical declarations
(i.e. (?{ my $x; ... }) also accumulate, and are only processed en-mass at
the end, on exit from the regex. Currently they are usually processed in
the wrong pad (the caller of the pattern, rather than the pads of the
individual code block(s)), leading to random misbehaviour and SEGVs.

Hence the long-standing advice to avoid lexical declarations within

We fix this by wrapping a pair of SAVECOMPPADs around each call to a code
block. Eventually the save stack will be a long accumulation of
SAVEt_CLEARSV's interspersed with SAVEt_COMPPAD's, that when popped
en-mass should unwind in the right order with the right pad at the right

The price to pay for this is two extra additions to the save stack (which
accumulate) for each code call.

A few TODO tests in reg_eval_scope.t now pass, so I'm probably doing the
right thing ;-)

OK, now I understand what’s happening.

If there is a public macro (PUSHSUB) that contains a call to a pri-
vate function (was_lvalue_sub), that function has to be exported, so
that non-core code can call it.  But if it is marked X, there is no
was_lvalue_sub shorthand macro visible to non-core code, so when the
PUSHSUB macro is expanded in such code, the was_lvalue_sub(...) bit
becomes a call to the function literally named was_lvalue_sub, as
opposed to Perl_lvalue_sub (and is compiled that way on forgiving
platforms).  Making it A makes that macro available to non-core code,
but also implies that it is available for direct use by extensions,
which is not the case with was_lvalue_sub.

So, this commit makes it X again, but spells it out in PUSHSUB, so
there is no need for the function’s macro to be available when
PUSHSUB is expanded.

Hence, there is no need for the was_lvalue_sub macro to exist, so this
commit also removes it.

11 years agomake peep optimiser recurse mostly only shallowly
David Mitchell [Tue, 5 Jul 2011 14:53:34 +0000 (15:53 +0100)]
make peep optimiser recurse mostly only shallowly

Long blocks of code that include logical or loop ops (i.e. those with
multiple 'branches' of ops, such as op_other, op_redo etc) cause
Perl_rpeep to recurse deeply and eventaully SEGV.

For example this crashes, due to the ENTERLOOP:

    eval ("{\$x = 1 }\n" x 10000)

The deep recursion happens because the processing of the entire rest of
the code occurs in within the nested call. For example in the code

    A && B; C; D; E;

the ops are structured as

A -> AND -> C -> D -> E
       \   /

where AND->op_next points to C, while AND->op_other points to B.
rpeep() would normally process each op in the op_next sequence in turn
(i.e. A/AND/C/D/E), but when it reaches AND, it recursively calls
rpeep(B), which happens to then process B/C/D/E. Finally it returns,
and the parent rpeep processes C, finds it's already done, and exits.

Clearly, if C,D,E etc also contain conditional/loop ops, then the
recursion level gradually stacks up.

The fix for this is to add a small deferred queue to rpeep().
Whenever rpeep wants to recurse with op_other or op_lastop etc,
it instead adds it to the deferred queue. Only if the queue is full is
rpeep actually called. The hope is that by deferring, when we do
eventually process it, enough of the main op_next chain has already been
processed to ensure that the child rpeep returns very early.

In the example above, processing of AND causes B to be added to the queue,
and the main rpeep process continues processing C, D etc. Sometime later,
the queue becomes full and B is processed via a recursive call to rpeep.
B is processed, and op_next is followed to C, but C is marked as already
processed, so the child rpeep returns almost immediately.

For LOOP ops, I've stopped following op_redoop and op_nextop, since
AFAIKT the ops these point to will also be reachable vie op_next anyway.
op_lastop is the exception; in while(1){..} only op_lastop points to the
rest of the code block.

Note that this commit doesn't guarantee only shallow recursion, it just
makes deep recursion fairly unlikely.

Note also that this commit causes the order of the processing of op_next
chains to be altered; this can affect the ordering of compiler warnings
and fatal messages among potentially other things.

Merge branch 'smueller/eu_typemap' into blead

Much of ExtUtils::ParseXS was rewritten and cleaned up.
It has been made somewhat more extensible and now finally
uses strictures.

The logic for parsing, merging, and dumping XS typemaps was extracted
from ExtUtils::ParseXS into a module of its own, ExtUtils::Typemaps.
ExtUtils::Typemaps offers an interface to typemap handling outside of
the scope of the XS compiler itself.

As a first use case of the improved API an extensibility, typemaps can now
be included inline into XS code with a HEREDOC-like syntax:

$ perl -lMHash::Util=lock_value
$h{a} = __PACKAGE__; lock_value %h, a; $h{a} = "3"; print $h{a}'

OK, so it didn’t really lock it. Now for more fun:

$ perl -lMHash::Util=unlock_value
$h{a} = __PACKAGE__; unlock_value %h, a; $h{a} =~ y/ia/ao/;
print __PACKAGE__

There are three different ways to fix this:
1) Add an SvFAKE function to Internals:: (not *more* ‘internals’ for
   people [ahem, Const::Fast, ahem] to abuse!)
2) Use B::* functions in Hash::Util to check the flags (too slow)
3) Make Internals::SvREADONLY less ‘internal’, by having it deal with
   readonliness in general, rather than just the SVf_READONLY flag.

The third approach seems the most logical, so that’s what this
commit does.

There is one test in t/op/tr.t that uses Internals::SvREADONLY to
detect bovinity, so I’ve changed it to use B instead, as that will
have no effect on post-install efficiency.

Make it possible to have read-only glob copies

use Hash::Util lock_value;
*foo::; # autovivify
lock_value %::, foo::::;
*foo:: = [];

So far so good.  That’s to be expected.  But this one crashes:

use Hash::Util lock_value;
$a{h} = *foo;
lock_value %a, h;
$a{h} = [];

Under debugging builds, it gives assertion failures.

Anyone who knows how the flags work will see immediately what’s wrong,
but for the sake of those who don’t:

The SVf_FAKE flag is set on a copy of a typeglob, meaning that assign-
ing something other than a glob to it will overwrite the glob, instead
of writing to one of its slots.

The SVf_FAKE flag on a read-only (SVf_READONLY-flagged) string means
that it’s not actually read-only, but a copy-on-write string.

SVf_READONLY on a glob means that you can’t even assign *through* it.
See the first Hash::Util example above.

The crashing occurs when the two flags are combined.
sv_force_normal_flags assumes that anything marked fake AND read-only
is a copy-on-write string, so it proceeds to gut it, even if it’s
actually just corrupting a glob.

So this commit changes that check to take typeglobs into account.
