Hi, I was attempting to nstore() on some large data structures (which unfortunately contain some proprietary client data, so I couldn't furnish them even if you wanted them), and getting the error "Illegal instruction (core dumped)". Unfortunately I don't control perl on this machine and it was built without debugging symbols, so the core file isn't much good to me. I went back and ran 'make test' for the 2.04 distribution, and sure enough, some of the tests fail: Failed Test Status Wstat Total Fail Failed List of failed ---------------------------------------------------------------- t/integer.t 4 1024 850 4 0.47% 89, 259, 599, 769 Running with TEST_VERBOSE=1 shows me that these errors all say: # Passed in -2147483649 (0, 0) # got back '-2147483649' (0, 0) These particular failures don't *quite* look like a smoking gun, but it seems like they should be corrected before trying to track down anything else, especially given my phantom data set. Incidentally, I get the same behavior in my application if I use store() instead of nstore(), so I currently don't have a workaround other than to try FreezeThaw or something. ------------------------------------------------------------ [sa0110e0:~] kenw> uname -a AIX sa0110e0 3 4 000118654C00 [sa0110e0:~] kenw> perl -V Summary of my perl5 (5.0 patchlevel 5 subversion 3) configuration: Platform: osname=aix, osvers=, archname=aix uname='aix funny 3 4 000001716600 ' hint=recommended, useposix=true, d_sigaction=define usethreads=undef useperlio=undef d_sfio=undef Compiler: cc='cc', optimize='-O', gccversion= cppflags='-D_ALL_SOURCE -D_ANSI_C_SOURCE -D_POSIX_SOURCE -qmaxmem=16384' ccflags ='-D_ALL_SOURCE -D_ANSI_C_SOURCE -D_POSIX_SOURCE -qmaxmem=16384' stdchar='unsigned char', d_stdstdio=define, usevfork=false intsize=4, longsize=4, ptrsize=4, doublesize=8 d_longlong=define, longlongsize=8, d_longdbl=define, longdblsize=8 alignbytes=8, usemymalloc=n, prototype=define Linker and Libraries: ld='ld', ldflags ='-s' libpth=/lib /usr/lib /usr/ccs/lib libs=-lnsl -ldbm -ldl -lld -lm -lc -lcrypt -lbsd -lPW -lC_r libc=/lib/libc.a, so=a, useshrplib=false, libperl=libperl.a Dynamic Linking: dlsrc=dl_aix.xs, dlext=so, d_dlsymun=undef, ccdlflags='-bE:perl.exp' cccdlflags=' ', lddlflags='-bhalt:4 -bM:SRE -bI:$(PERL_INC)/perl.exp -bE:$(BASEEXT).exp -b noentry -lc' Characteristics of this binary (from libperl): Built under aix Compiled at Aug 14 1999 08:59:55 %ENV: PERL5LIB="/h/cmcrc/kenw/lib" @INC: /h/cmcrc/kenw/lib/aix /h/cmcrc/kenw/lib /usr/opt/perl5/lib/5.00503/aix /usr/opt/perl5/lib/5.00503 /usr/opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.005/aix /usr/opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.005 .
