12 years agoAvoid segfault when ticky file argument is stderr
Tim Chevalier [Thu, 26 Apr 2007 19:18:57 +0000 (19:18 +0000)] 
Avoid segfault when ticky file argument is stderr

If you compiled a program with -ticky and ran it with:
./foo +RTS -rstderr -RTS
the result would be a segfault. This was because the RTS interprets stderr to
mean "use debugBelch to print out messages," and sets the ticky file pointer
to NULL as a result, but PrintTickyInfo (the function in Ticky.c that prints
out the ticky report) wasn't checking for NULL.

I changed PrintTickyInfo to check whether the ticky file pointer is NULL and
output to stderr if so.

Also removed an unused import from CodeOutput.lhs.

Dont tidy up tyvars after :print type reconstruction

I introduced a bug yesterday when I changed the way tidying up was performed.
As a result of tidying,  cvObtainTerm could be returning types
with regular tyvars inside, which never should.

But actually, it's better if we do not do the tidying up, in order to
keep the tyvar names from the environment.
New names will be introduced only when an existential is found, which
is not so common. In this case the user will see a funny name.
Is that really an issue?

Simon Marlow [Tue, 17 Apr 2007 14:24:58 +0000 (14:24 +0000)] 
Re-working of the breakpoint support

This is the result of Bernie Pope's internship work at MSR Cambridge,
with some subsequent improvements by me.  The main plan was to

 (a) Reduce the overhead for breakpoints, so we could enable
     the feature by default without incurrent a significant penalty
 (b) Scatter more breakpoint sites throughout the code

Currently we can set a breakpoint on almost any subexpression, and the
overhead is around 1.5x slower than normal GHCi.  I hope to be able to
get this down further and/or allow breakpoints to be turned off.

This patch also fixes up :print following the recent changes to
constructor info tables.  (most of the :print tests now pass)

We now support single-stepping, which just enables all breakpoints.

  :step <expr>     executes <expr> with single-stepping turned on
  :step            single-steps from the current breakpoint

The mechanism is quite different to the previous implementation.  We
share code with the HPC (haskell program coverage) implementation now.
The coverage pass annotates source code with "tick" locations which
are tracked by the coverage tool.  In GHCi, each "tick" becomes a
potential breakpoint location.

Previously breakpoints were compiled into code that magically invoked
a nested instance of GHCi.  Now, a breakpoint causes the current
thread to block and control is returned to GHCi.
