Subject [jira] [Resolved] (MAPREDUCE-1166) SerialUtils.cc: dynamic allocation of arrays based on runtime variable is not portable
Date Wed, 02 Nov 2011 17:49:32 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1166?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Allen Wittenauer resolved MAPREDUCE-1166.
-----------------------------------------

    Resolution: Won't Fix

Hadoop's focus is not on portability.  Closing as won't fix.

> In SerialUtils.cc, the following code appears:
>     int len;
>     if (b < -120) {
>       negative = true;
>       len = -120 - b;
>     } else {
>       negative = false;
>       len = -112 - b;
>     }
>     uint8_t barr[len];
> as far as I'm aware, this is not legal in ANSI C and will be rejected by ANSI compliant
compilers.  Instead, this should be malloc()'d based upon the size of len and free()'d later.
