Subject Re: XalanText::substringData() BUG?
Date Sun, 21 Jan 2001 15:21:19 GMT

This is not a bug.

When I look through the source code, I see no implementation for
XalanText::substringData().  If you're talking about
XercesTextBridge::substringData, then you'll need to be more specific about
where this is happening.

You should read the DOM recommendation.  If the arguments for substringData
() are not valid, then an exception will be thrown.  This is exactly what
happens with the Xerces DOM.  If you're not catching exceptions, then your
program will crash.

I'm seeing that if the XalanText node contains no data, calling
substringData(0, 1024) causes a seg fault (actually any number for the max

Is this a bug or is the semantics to always check for the node to contain
data?  Incidentally getData() does not crash
