Bug #5912

Interpreter crashes when trying to invoke implicit block via Binding#eval

Added by Ryan LeCompte about 5 years ago. Updated about 4 years ago.

Target version:
ruby -v:
ruby 1.9.2p290 (2011-07-09 revision 32553) [x86_64-darwin11.0.1]


Here's how to reproduce the problem:

[1] pry(main)> def foo
[1] pry(main)* binding
[1] pry(main)* end

=> nil
[2] pry(main)> b = foo { puts 'hi!' }
=> #Binding:0x007f8b7a0e2ec0
[3] pry(main)> b.eval('').call
(pry):5: [BUG] Segmentation fault

You may have encountered a bug in the Ruby interpreter or extension libraries.
Bug reports are welcome.
For details:

Abort trap: 6

Interestingly enough, if you type it all on a single line, it works!

def foo; binding; end; b = foo { puts 'hi!' }; b.eval('').call

But then afterwards, if you type:


It will crash the interpreter.
