Subject: SEGV when accessing $sth->{TYPE}->[$i] for a VIEW
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 3.5k
This seems similar to Case 8564, but maybe isn't exactly the same. I get the SEGV reproducibly on the first attempt to get TYPE, but only for a VIEW, not for a TABLE. I have no problem getting NAME, as 8564 reports. But 8564 seems to indicate that the symptom doesn't occur reproducibly, so perhaps I've just not seen it yet. In case this is the same bug (after all, they both involve access to metadata), perhaps having a reproducible case will facilitate debugging. Here is a Perl program, the program output, and a stack trace following the SEGV. As in Case 8564, I'm using DBD::SQLite, which implies sqlite version 3.0.8. I've also reported this issue to the sqlite-users list. Show quoted text

Still see this with DBD::SQLite 1.11

In dbdimp.c, around line 674:- else if (strEQ(key, "TYPE")) { AV *av = newAV(); av_extend(av, i); retsv = sv_2mortal(newRV(sv_2mortal((SV*)av))); for (n = 0; n < i; n++) { const char *fieldtype = sqlite3_column_decltype(imp_sth->stmt, n); int type = sqlite3_column_type(imp_sth->stmt, n); /* warn("got type: %d = %s\n", type, fieldtype); */ type = type_to_odbc_type(type); /* av_store(av, n, newSViv(type)); */ av_store(av, n, newSVpv(fieldtype, 0)); } } sqlite3_column_decltype returns NULL for a (View) column which is the result of a function - ie count(*). Suggest that this is worked round by forcing a null result to "UNKNOWN", "INTEGER" (good guess for sqlite functions) or "VARCHAR" (pretty much what sqlite uses everywhere).

changing the av_store line to if (fieldtype == NULL) { av_store(av, n, newSVpv("INTEGER", 0)); } else { av_store(av, n, newSVpv(fieldtype, 0)); } does pretty much the same thing. In particular it stops DBIx::Class core dumping with views :-/
Will be fixed in 1.13.
