Hi all.
The following code makes the compiler segfault:
import std.stdio, std.string;
void main()
{
writefln(split("A b"));
}

The split() function returns a set of slices into its parameter. If you are running on Linux, the string literal is in protected RAM so writes to it will fail. When I run your test on Windows, I just get a bad format code message. Here is my version of your test to make it work ... import std.stdio, std.string; void main() { foreach(char[] s; split("A b".dup)) writefln(s); } -- Derek Parnell Melbourne, Australia 23/07/2005 8:59:00 PM

Why would this code cause a write to the string literal? Stewart. -- -----BEGIN GEEK CODE BLOCK----- Version: 3.1 GCS/M d- s:- a->--- UB P+ L E W++ N+++ o K- w++ O? M V? PS- PE- Y? PGP- t- 5? X?

I think you wanted to post this to D.bugs and not D.announce. On Windows the compiler didn't seg-v (since you say seg-v I assume you're on Linux, though) but it does give a FormatError when you run the program. That's because general dynamic arrays are not handled by std.format.doFormat. I've fixed up doFormat to write the string [s_1,s_2,...,s_N] where s_k is the result of calling doFormat recursively on the kth element of the array. Right now I have it working for dynamic arrays. I'll try to get static and associative arrays going and send the result to Walter.

With DMD v0.128, this code doesn't segfault on either Windows or Linux during compilation and 'Error: std.format formatArg' is the result when it is run on either. - Dave
