t/op/io.t fails in non optimized build

Reported by: NotFound Owned by: dukeleto
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: testing Version: 2.3.0
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Language:
Patch status: Platform:


The test open_delegates_to_filehandle_pmc in t/op/io.t fire an assertion in Parrot_io_open: PARROT_ASSERT(new_filehandle->vtable->base_type == typenum);

I'm not sure what are the purposes of the test and the assertion.

A related point: Parrot_io_open uses HLL mapped FileHandle but Parrot_io_new_pmc uses enum_class_FileHandle, looks inconsistent.

Bisection indicates that the failure occurred with r45961 (attached).

dukeleto, can you take a look and test without --optimize? Thanks.

  • status changed from new to closed
  • resolution set to fixed

The assert was removed in r46009 causing t/op/io.t to pass once again. This is part of the correct fix according to allison's reply to a related thread ( http://groups.google.com/group/parrot-dev/msg/881e03c120a1909e).

  • status changed from closed to reopened

the test is still failing for me in builds without --optimize (it passes - [i.e. does not indicate failure] on builds with --optimize).

it now fails with:
src/ops/io.ops:161: failed assertion '! PMC_IS_NULL(PREG(1))'

the relevant code is

inline op open(out PMC, in STR) :filesys_open {
    if (STRING_IS_NULL($2)) {
        opcode_t *handler = Parrot_ex_throw_from_op_args(interp, expr NEXT(),
            EXCEPTION_UNEXPECTED_NULL, "Invalid open");
        goto ADDRESS(handler);
    else {
        $1 = Parrot_io_open(interp, PMCNULL, $2, NULL);

with 161 being the PARROT_ASSERT

I extracted the test and the remaining tests pass but the test fails when run on its own.

.const int TESTS = 1

.sub 'main' :main
    .include 'test_more.pir'



.sub open_delegates_to_filehandle_pmc
    load_bytecode 'P6object.pbc'

    .local pmc p6meta, interp, classes, classid
    p6meta = get_root_global ["parrot"], "P6metaclass"

    interp = getinterp
    classes = interp[0]
    classid = classes['Testing']
    $I0 = classes['FileHandle']
    set classes['FileHandle'], classid

    $P1 = open '/foo'

    # replace the original, so we don't break other tests
    set classes['FileHandle'], $I0


.namespace ["Testing"]

.sub open :method
    .param pmc args :slurpy
    ok(1,'open opcode delegates to the FileHandle PMC')

I don't think the ok function should be in the open method but after checking The

    $P1 = open '/foo'

if $P1 is NULL as the assertion seems to indicate, then we are not getting a valid result, and the test should not ok it.

Is P6_Object.pbc right for parrot tests?

Here's an example of the problems with the current implementation:


.HLL 'fubar'

# Check HLL mapping of filehandle

.sub main
    .local pmc interp, fh, fbh, fake
    interp = getinterp
    fh = get_class ['FileHandle']

# Use a parrot class, whose base_type isn't
# what get_ctx_HLL_type returns.
    fbh = newclass ['FubarHandle']
    $P0 = new fh
    interp.'hll_map'(fh, fbh)
    $P1 = open 'something'
    close $P1

# Use a PMC, which is. Dragons and lions here:
    fake = get_class ['ResizablePMCArray']
    #fake = get_class ['Integer']
    interp.'hll_map'(fh, fake)
    $P2 = open 'hllmapfh.pir'
    close $P2

.namespace [ 'FubarHandle' ]

.sub init :vtable
    say 'FubarHandle.init'

.sub open :method
    .param string whatever
    .param string dontcare
    say 'FubarHandle.open'

.sub close :method
    say 'FubarHandle.close'

# End

When using a parrot class, the check new_filehandle->vtable->base_type == typenum doen't pass. When using a PMC, that checks assumes is a FileHandle PMC. The result may vary, can do nothing, can fail subtlety, can coredump...

So I really don't know what the intention of the code is or what the test is testing.

mikehh has verified that the original issue has been fixed so I'll put this ticket to bed. Discussion of other issues should go into a new ticket.
