Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-15) EXCEPTION_DTOR test crashes with VC 7.1 debug
Date Mon, 29 Aug 2005 11:10:13 GMT
    [ ] 

Alex Ostapenko commented on STDCXX-15:

Yes, I have changed main() to:

int main (int argc, char *argv[])

    // try to prevent the compiler from optimizing the dtor call away
    std::exception *ptr;

    if (argc < 0x0FFF) //just a trick to force compiler to leave exception .dtor but "never"
allow to execeute it
       return 0;
    //since test is being executed without arguments we should never get there
    ptr = new Derived;
    delete ptr;
    return 1;

And EXCEPTION_DTOR began to work.
However, the same problem exists in the BAD_CAST_DTOR and BAD_TYPEID_DTOR. But they also could
be fixed in the same way.

> Test asserts on "Damage after normal" block. Probably reason is that std::exception class
declared in the EXCEPTION_DTOR.cpp has different layout from std::exception declared in the
VC headers. Thus external .ctor/.dtor call damages memory beyond the memory block allocated
for a class.
