#11 new defect

Compiler uses all Resources when Copying from Generic Function Result

Reported by: ajbeach Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: cfa-cc
Version: 1.0 Keywords:


If I try to compile the following code the cfa compiler uses 100% CPU and 100% MEM and crashes the computer.

maybe(char) letter = maybe_value('a');

However the following code compiles with no noticeable slowdown:

maybe(char) letter;
letter = maybe_value('a');
maybe(char) rune = letter;

I also tried annotating the argument, (char)'a', and that got it to work. I'm not sure why as under the current rules that should be a no-op. But it does suggest a resolver issue.

I also tried annotating the call of maybe_value with maybe(char) and got the following error:

*CFA assertion error* from program "cfa-cpp" in "virtual void CodeGen::CodeGenerator::visit(TypeExpr*)" at line 733 in file "CodeGen/": TypeExpr should not reach code generation.

Sorry, may have cut too much out of the context. This still seems to cause problems.

void checkNamedConstructors() {
    maybe(char) letter = maybe_value('a');
    assert('a' == get(&letter));

    maybe(char) rune = maybe_none();

The issue with the code above seems to actually be maybe(char) rune = maybe_none();

The existing resolver is not good at inferring types that don't exist in the parameter list of the function, though I can perhaps take a look at this.

As a workaround for this case, maybe(char) rune = {}; should work.

Andrew pointed out that the following also don't work, I strongly suspect it's the same underlying bug (the error and value types, respectively, are not bound in the parameter list):

result(int, char) answer = result_value( 42 );
result(int, char) nonanswer = result_error( '!' );

Workarounds for the above cases are as follows:

result(int, char) answer = { 1, 42 };
result(int, char) nonanswer = { 0, '!' };

It is worth noting that the resolver prototype already handles these cases (more or less, it doesn't support generic types yet, but it does do inference over return types).

Smallest reproduction of this bug (if you comment out line 4 it doesn't occur):

1struct foo {};
3forall(otype T) struct tagged {
4    T t;
7forall(otype T) 
8T make() { T r; return r; }
10int main() {
11    tagged(foo) f = make();
