Description

Problem

Currently, the interpreter emits 200 lines of warnings against the following program.

def foo(**opt); end
100.times { foo({kw:1}) }
$ ./miniruby -e 'def foo(**opt); end; 100.times { foo({kw:1}) }'
-e:1: warning: The last argument is used as the keyword parameter
-e:1: warning: for `foo' defined here
-e:1: warning: The last argument is used as the keyword parameter
-e:1: warning: for `foo' defined here
-e:1: warning: The last argument is used as the keyword parameter
-e:1: warning: for `foo' defined here
...

In theory, the warnings are not harmful because they don't stop or interfere the execution. But in practice, I'm afraid if they are annoying because they flush all console logs away.
I think that the warning is not needed if the call is already warned.

Proposal

How about limiting the count of warnings to at most once for each pair of caller and callee?

I've created a pull request. It records all pairs of caller position and callee iseq when emitting a warning, and suppress the warning if the same pair of caller and callee is already warned.

What do you think?

Definite +1 for me. I thought there was already an issue about this but looks I was mistaken.

It leads a memory leak.
And different warnings won't be suppressed too?

Updated by mame (Yusuke Endoh) 16 days ago

It leads a memory leak.

Theoretically, yes. Even if iseqs of caller or callee are free'd, the corresponding records are not free'd. But honestly I don't think it is worth elaborating the feature for some reasons:

(1) in practice, the case would be rare (to cause the leak, we need to repeatedly create iseq by using "eval" and trigger a warning in the iseq);
(2) the leak does not occur if a warning is not emitted (if any, it should be fixed); and
(3) this hack is only for Ruby 2.7.

Before implementing the patch, I discussed with ko1. At first I was going to avoid the leak by adding some fields to iseq, but he objected the approach and recommended the above design. Now I agree with him.

And different warnings won't be suppressed too?

It was not intended, but it would be also very rare to trigger different keyword warnings in one call, I guess.

What I worry about is Jeremy's comment in the PR:

In terms of idea, whether we want this feature depends on how annoying we want the warnings to be. If they warn every call, they are very annoying and it will push people to fixing the issue. If they only warn once, they are not that annoying, and people may be less inclined to fix the issue.

It is really convincing. That being said, I'm afraid if it is too annoying.

I'd like to hear opinions and discuss it at the next meeting, so I've created this ticket.

What's the performance with this patch for a call site that would warn?

If they only warn once, they are not that annoying, and people may be less inclined to fix the issue.

It's a warning about an upcoming incompatibility, once should be serious enough!

Maybe it should be reworded to emphasize seriousness, using the word "Deprecated" and "This will not be supported in Ruby 3.x":

# Change:
warning: The last argument is used as the keyword parameter
warning: for `foo' defined here

# to something like this:
Deprecated: The last argument is used as the keyword parameter
Deprecated: for `foo' defined here. This will not be supported in Ruby 3.x

I think the issue is more that in a long-lived process you'll get only a few warnings in a large log, and it may be easy to miss unless you specifically grep for the warnings.

Updated by shevegen (Robert A. Heiler) 12 days ago

Makes sense to me what mame wrote, so +1; marcandre's suggestion for a deprecation-specific
notice makes sense as well and may be useful past ruby 3.0 (if ruby 4.x may have more
incompatibilites than ruby 3.0; then there could be more distinct "Deprecated" or
"Deprecation" messages).

While your comment is perfectly reasonable and makes sense as well, I think this taps into
the older discussion about customizing warnings issued by ruby, so that people can adjust
ruby to different use cases (a bit like you can customize rubocop). But this may be a
discussion past ruby 3.0 perhaps. IMO what mame wrote makes sense too since it may not be
too overly useful to have your full screen overflow with the same warning-message spam
that you already know is a problem. (Of course if there was some way to customize it in
a simple manner, ruby users could then adjust this to their general use case - but I
don't want to dilute mame's suggestion here. Picking the "right" default behaviour
covering the most likely or "best" use case of course makes a lot of sense to me and
I think most ruby users who run into this situation are more likely to want to read cozy
and helpful messages on the commandline, and using logs only secondary. :) )

marcandr's suggestion has the advantage that the leading word "deprecated" can be
colourized quite easily, e. g. people could "style" it to red on their computer;
KDE Konsole supports R,G,B style too, I use that a lot myself for different colours
(HTML colours such as "tomato" or "orangered", but I am going off-topic here a
little bit; it is also not available to everyone, of course). But in general I think
mame's description makes a lot of sense.

Note that while I understand jeremy's comment about annoying messages "helping"
people change their code, not everyone thinks that spam is that helpful. See also
past discussions about reversing the output of the errors so that some people
have it easier to find the problem instantly, on the last part of the message,
whereas other ruby users prefer the old style. In the long run I think it would
be best to have some larger proposal for people being able to customize ruby
warnings (and perhaps error output to, to some extent), but it should be simple
to use too. But again, sorry for diluting here, +1 to what mame wrote. I don't
think "nagging" should be of higher priority than the goal of making it simpler
to read and understand what is going on - that is also in the spirit of the
did-you-mean gem, if you ask me.

I updated the benchmark results above and measured on this branch.
It's ~100x faster in that micro benchmark.

If we don't want pretty bad performance when migrating to 2.7 without fixing kwargs warnings (which probably takes a long time for application with many dependencies), then I think we need this.

Honestly I am not sure if the per call-site thing is needed, I would almost just have a default of count everything and just stop once you reach a number.

Pick a number 1000, 5000 ... something ... once you reach that ... you print to STDERR "Too many warnings regarding keyword args reached, you will no longer be alerted". You could then start small at like 50 for 2.7 release and crank it up to 500 at 2.7.1 if we feel people are not being bugged enough.

Technically even if the limit was 1 line globally ... that is enough to get an entire app fixed.

At the current levels I just see people using RUBYOPT=-W0 cause often they will require complex fixes to gems beyond an app owners controls (especially now that delegation is a nightmare)

Note... some of this fiddling with keyword arguments is showing up as a slowdown in rubybench
