use cBOOL for bool casts

bool b = (bool)some_int

doesn't necessarily do what you think. In some builds, bool is defined as
char, and that cast's behaviour is thus undefined. So this line in mg.c:

    const bool was_temp = (bool)SvTEMP(sv);

was actually setting was_temp to false even when the SVs_TEMP flag was set.
Fix this by replacing all the (bool) casts with a new cBOOL() cast macro
that (hopefully) does the right thing.

Karl Williamson [Wed, 14 Apr 2010 03:25:36 +0000 (21:25 -0600)]
PATCH: [perl #72998] regex looping

If a character folds to multiple ones in case-insensitive matching,
it should not match just one of those, or the regular expression can
loop.  For example, \N{LATIN SMALL LIGATURE FF} folds to 'ff', and so
    "\N{LATIN SMALL LIGATURE FF}" =~ /f+/i
should match.  Prior to this patch, this function returned that there is
a match, but left the matching string  pointer at the beginning of the
"\N{LATIN SMALL LIGATURE FF}" because it doesn't make sense to match
just half a character, and at this level it doesn't know about the '+'.
This leaves things in an inconsistent state, with the reporting of a
match, but the input pointer unchanged, the result of which is a loop.

I don't know how to fix this so that it correctly matches, and there are
semantic issues with doing so.  For example, if
    "\N{LATIN SMALL LIGATURE FF}" =~ /ff/i
matches, then one would think that so should
    "\N{LATIN SMALL LIGATURE FF}" =~ /(f)(f)/i
But $1 and $2 don't really make sense here, since they both refer to the
half of the same character.

So this patch just returns failure if only a partial character is
matched.  That leaves things consistent, and solves the problem of
looping, so that Perl doesn't hang on such a construct, but leaves the
ultimate solution for another day.

11 years agoPL_defoutgv isn't always a GV.
David Mitchell [Tue, 30 Mar 2010 14:03:50 +0000 (15:03 +0100)]
PL_defoutgv isn't always a GV.

Nasty code like the following results in PL_defoutgv not pointing
to a valid GV:

    my $x = *STDERR; select($x); $x = 1;

This causes all sorts of SEGVs when PL_defoutgv is subsequently accessed,
because most code assumes that it has a valid gv_gp pointer.  It also
turns out that PL_defoutgv is under-tested; for example, temporarily
hacking pp_close to make an arg-less close() croak didn't cause any
minitest failures.

Add a new test file that does some basic testing of a bad PL_defoutgv,
and fix all the obvious badness in accessing it.

This also fixes #20727, which although ostensibly a tie bug, was due to
PL_defoutgv pointing to a tiedelem scalar, and fun like that described
above happening.
