#57203 assigned defect

pcreposix segfault in regfree with trivial program

Reported by: markpizz (Mark Pizzolato) Owned by: larryv (Lawrence Velázquez)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc:
Port: pcre

Description

This program (retest.c) fails:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <pcreposix.h>
#include <pcre.h>
#include <pthread.h>

int main (int argc, char **argv)
    {
    int re_result;
    regex_t re;
    char match_buf[64] = "Match This";

    printf("Using PCRE V %s\n", pcre_version());
    memset (&re, 0, sizeof(re));
    re_result = regcomp (&re, match_buf, REG_EXTENDED);
    if (re_result)
        {
        size_t err_size = regerror (re_result, &re, NULL, 0);
        char *err_buf = (char *)calloc (err_size+1, 1);

        regerror (re_result, &re, err_buf, err_size);
        fprintf (stderr, "Regular Expression Error compiling '%s': %s\n", match_buf, err_buf);
        free (err_buf);
        exit (1);
        }
    printf("Regular Expression compile of '%s' successful\n", match_buf);
    regfree (&re);
    }

This is how I see the failure:

Can you attach a crash log?

Hi Larry,

My system is running the latest macOS Hight Sierra version 10.13.6.

Looking in /Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports I do not see any 'crash log' specific to this simple application generating a segfault. The /Library/Logs/CrashReporter directory is empty.

If I run this test program under the debugger I get:

marks-mac-mini:simh mark$ gcc -g -O0 retest.c -I/opt/local/include -L/opt/local/lib  -lpthread -lpcreposix -lpcre -o retest

I can't reproduce this in the latest pcre v8.44.
