Bug #8756

SEGFAULT caused by `p`

Added by misfo (Trent Ogren) almost 7 years ago. Updated over 6 years ago.

Target version:
ruby -v:
ruby 2.0.0p247 (2013-06-27 revision 41674) [x86_64-darwin12.4.0]


Printing the instance methods for a Struct with a member name ending in a question mark causes a seg fault. I've confirmed this using the 2.0.0p247 on OS X and linux.

Here's the minimal test case for reproducing from a shell:

$ ruby -e 'p'
-e:1: [BUG] Segmentation fault
ruby 2.0.0p247 (2013-06-27 revision 41674) [x86_64-darwin12.4.0]

Such a name like :q? or :q! should not be allowed as an attribute of a Struct.

Here is a patch:

Trent, thank you for reporting this issue.
Your contribution to Ruby is greatly appreciated.
May Ruby be with you.

parse.y: non-local/const attrset

  • parse.y (rb_id_attrset): allow other than ID_ATTRSET.
  • parse.y (intern_str): ditto. try stem ID for ID_INSTANCE, ID_GLOBAL, ID_CLASS, ID_JUNK too. [Bug #8756]
