in reply to random crashes, memory corruption, warnings from Encode

Hello bulk88,

I don’t have an answer for you, but I’ve found something that might possibly help. If I run your code as-is, I get a similar crash. Same if I change sub xs_edistance to:

sub xs_edistance { my $a1 = $utf32encoder->encode($_[0],0); my $a2 = $utf32encoder->encode($_[1],0); }

However, if the subroutine arguments are copied:

sub xs_edistance { my ($in1, $in2) = @_; my $a1 = $utf32encoder->encode($in1,0); my $a2 = $utf32encoder->encode($in2,0); }

the tests still fail, but there is no crash.

Update: Should have mentioned, I’m running Strawberry Perl v5.16.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread-64int on 32-bit Vista; with Encode v2.47 (the latest version).

Hope that helps,

Athanasius <°(((><contra mundum Iustus alius egestas vitae, eros Piratica,

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
