Memory error with PDKSH 5.2.14-3?
Mon Jun 6 10:12:00 GMT 2005
Just wanted to report that I was seeing error messages such as the
following in Korn shell scripts:
/home/tbaker/u/bin/urlists: internal error: alloc: freeing
memory outside of block (corrupted?)
By running the scripts in debug mode (set -x), I found that
the problem seemed to occur when declared functions (i.e.,
declared within the script) were invoked multiple times.
The functions would work at first, then stop working --
as if the functions somehow ate up the available memory.
Since rolling back from 5.2.14-3 to 5.2.14-2, the problem
seems to have gone away.
I am not a programmer and do not have time to test this
systematically but thought others on this list might want
to hear about this.
