Subject [jira] Updated: (STDCXX-989) [EDG C++ 3.9] definition of jmp_buf causes buffer overflow
Date Thu, 10 Jul 2008 20:32:31 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/STDCXX-989?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Travis Vitek updated STDCXX-989:
--------------------------------

    Description: 
The {{jmp_buf}} definition provided in {{include/ansi/\_csetjmp.h}} is not as large as {{setjmp()}}
is expecting. This causes a buffer overflow when running tests that use the test driver ({{rw_test}}),
which results in data corruption. If you run the tests with {{--trace}}, you will see that
the _clause_ field of the output is always corrupt after the first use.

The following shows the expected size for us...

{noformat}
$ cat u.cpp; eccp u.cpp && ./a.out
#include <setjmp.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main ()
{
    printf ("%u\n", sizeof (jmp_buf));
    return 0;
}
156
{noformat}

The definition of {{jmp_buf}} in {{include/rw/_csetjmp.h}} is a buffer of 8 bytes.
