Subject RE: [PATCH] Be verbose during shl_load on HP-UX
Date Fri, 30 May 2003 17:54:21 GMT
	Here's what I did : I wrote a small program (attached below). 

In Step 1, I close stdout, and try running the program.. Since the program
doesn't have all the ap_* symbols, it complains, and the output I got was :

$ ./a
/usr/lib/dld.sl: Unresolved symbol: ap_chroot (data)  from
/usr/lib/dld.sl: Unresolved symbol: apr_bucket_type_flush (data)  from
/usr/lib/dld.sl: Unresolved symbol: unixd_config (data)  from

In Step 2, I comment close(1), and uncomment close (2), and try running the
program.. The output was :

$ ./a
Cannot load mod_ssl.so into server: Bad file number

Now, what should be the behaviour under the following scenarios :

- everything is fine : program runs fine. No problems.
- Unresolved symbols and stderr is open   : program will report the
unresolved symbols on stderr
- Unresolved symbols and stderr is closed : program will exit with a -1,
with the error "Bad file number".

Question : Are you telling me that you don't like to see "Bad file number"
as the error message ?

If that is the case, can we can put a specific case for HPUX, for 
1. when BIND_VERBOSE is enabled, and
2. stderr is closed, and
3. you get this message, 
we can print a particular error message (because we know whatz happening)..

int main (int argc, const char * const argv[])
    apr_pool_t *pp;
    apr_status_t rv;
    apr_dso_handle_t *modhandle;

    apr_app_initialize(&argc, &argv, NULL);

    if ((rv = apr_pool_create(&pp, NULL)) != APR_SUCCESS) {
        printf("Error creating pool..\n");
    apr_pool_tag (pp, "process");

    /* close (2) */

    rv = apr_dso_load(&modhandle, "/opt/hpws/apache/modules/mod_ssl.so",
    if (rv != APR_SUCCESS) {
        char my_error[256], *err_string;

        err_string = apr_pstrcat(pp, "Cannot load mod_ssl.so into server: ",
                          apr_dso_error(modhandle, my_error,

        printf("%s", err_string);
    printf("successfully loaded...\n");
