Cannot presently dump Class pmcs

Patch status: Platform: all


Invoking _dumper (the front end to Data::Dumper) on a RPA returned from the .parents() method of a P6object class produces an exception:

"VAR1" => ResizablePMCArray (size:2) [
    Class {get_iter() not implemented in class 'Class'

make: *** [classtest] Error 1

I don't know if dumper was using genericHash because the class pmc identified itself as a hash, or if because Hash is the eventual root of the class hierarchy. Regardless, crash-and-exit seems inappropriate behavior.

Are there any other PMC types that have this problem, or is it just Class? I'm trying to see if it is a problem with the mechanism or a problem with this particular PMC.

Austin - it would be helpful if you could provide a PIR snippet to reproduce this problem. Thanks!

The following code snippet works for me and does not throw an unhandled exception like what was posted in the ticket:

{{ .sub main :main

load_bytecode 'Data/Dumper.pbc' $P0 = newclass 'Foo' $P1 = new ["Data";"Dumper"] $P1.'dumper'($P0)

.end }}}

this isn't the _dumper function like was mentioned, but it is Data::Dumper and it does dump a Class PMC without problems. Unless I can see some kind of concrete counter-example, I'm going to close this ticket in a few days.
