Subject: [BUG] Entering an infinite hot loop during pre-compilation + RAKUDO_MODULE_DEBUG=1
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.2k
Hello! I've noted that moar will enter an infinite hot loop when the RAKUDO_MODULE_DEBUG=1 environment is specified. The last few lines of the output on the terminal is like this: Then it just hangs there. The moar process maxes out the CPU core: PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND 10147 agentzh 20 0 140408 117760 24452 R 100.0 1.4 0:57.08 moar strace shows tons of the following write() syscall: write(2, " 1 10147 RMD: dependency checksum 7DE3572D8645BB1BB4E1928CE0EDFACC6CE644BD unit: 7DE3572D8645BB1BB4E1928CE0EDFACC6CE644BD\n", 124) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable) All identical. gdb shows the following backtrace: The version of my rakudo: $ perl6 --version This is Rakudo version 2017.01 built on MoarVM version 2017.01 implementing Perl 6.c. Details on my operating system: $ uname -a Linux fedora64 4.8.13-100.fc23.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Dec 9 14:51:40 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux Removing the RAKUDO_MODULE_DEBUG=1 environment makes the hot looping go away. Please let me know if you need any further information. Thanks! -agentzh
