Subject: Uninitialized value error in Tk::Menu

Tk::Menu is giving me an error in version 804.028 which it did not in the previous version, exemplified by the following code: #----- #!/usr/bin/perl -w use Tk; my $mw = Tk::MainWindow->new(); my $menubar = $mw->Menu( -type => 'menubar' ); my $file = $menubar->Menu(); $menubar->add( 'cascade', -label => 'File', -menu => $file, ); $file->add( 'command', -label => 'Exit', -command => sub { $mw->destroy }, ); $mw->configure( -menu => $menubar ); Tk::MainLoop(); #----- Under 804.027 this worked as expected, but after upgrading to the perl-Tk-804.028-3 package in Fedora Core 7, it fails to display the menu, with this error: Use of uninitialized value in numeric le (<=) at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/Tk/Menu.pm line 1041. I dunno if this is a packaging problem by the Fedora people or a genuine problem. If you can't reproduce it I can run it by the Fedora Bugzilla. Thanks y'all! -- Matt P.S.

I cannot reproduce the problem with your test script on various systems (FreeBSD 6.2 + perl 5.8.8, Debian Linux + perl 5.8.8, with Tk 804.028). So it is possible that it's a Fedora-specific problem. Is it possible to see a list of differences between the Tk 804.028 distribution and the Fedora package, if any? What if you compile Tk yourself, does the problem persist? Regards, Slaven

Yes, it actually is a Fedora specific problem. For the details, see: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=235666

Uh ? this bug mentions a segfault. Here, we only have an undef value. Anyway, I've stumbled on the same problem on Mandriva. The workaround is to call Menu, cascade or MenuItem with "-tearoff => 0". On Mandriva, the undef triggers an exception which is caught in an eval, then the Menu construction fails. You can get more info on the failure stack by running the Tk application in Perl debugger: $ perl -w -d tk.pl~ Loading DB routines from perl5db.pl version 1.3 Editor support available.

I've compared Debian's and Mandriva's Menu.pm and Menu/Item.pm and there's no difference. I can only guess that the perl compiled on Mandriva is more strict than on Debian.

I've compared Tk.pm and all Tk/**.pm between Mandriva and Debian and could not see any significant differences (i.e. minor keybindings diff and one more function in one Debian file) Furthermore, this patch does suppress the undef warnings, but it does not suppress the problem: --- lib/Tk/Menu.pm~ 2009-07-23 13:46:45.000000000 +0200 +++ lib/Tk/Menu.pm 2009-07-23 15:23:20.000000000 +0200 @@ -1038,7 +1038,7 @@ my $last = $src->index('last'); if ($last ne 'none') { - for (my $i = $src->cget('-tearoff'); $i <= $last; $i++) + for (my $i = $src->cget('-tearoff') || 0; $i <= $last; $i++) { my $type = $src->type($i); if (defined $type) So my previous conclusion (stricter check in Perl) is false. But the -tearoff=>0 workaround still has an effect, except when calling cascade with deep structures passed to -menuitems All the best

Hello Slaven If you want to check the difference between Mandriva's Perl/Tk and CPAN Perl/Tk, the easiest way is to: - download Mandriva's SRPM package ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/Mandriva/devel/cooker/SRPMS//main/release/perl-Tk-804.28.0-12mdv2010.0.src.rpm - open it with file-roller - review with kompare the different patches shown by file-roller I've reviewed the patches. Most look fine, they mostly safeguard against null pointer and stuff like that. Most but not all. This patch looks fishy. Some config handling code is commented out. Jerome, do you know why this code was commented out ? --- pTk/mTk/generic/tkConfig.c.orig 2008-01-04 18:50:58.000000000 +0100 +++ pTk/mTk/generic/tkConfig.c 2008-01-05 00:15:15.000000000 +0100 @@ -1210,11 +1210,12 @@ * First, check to see if the object already has the answer cached. */ - if (objPtr->typePtr == &tkOptionObjType) { - if (objPtr->internalRep.twoPtrValue.ptr1 == (VOID *) tablePtr) { +/* if (objPtr->typePtr == &tkOptionObjType) { + if (objPtr->internalRep.twoPtrValue.ptr1 == (VOID *) tablePtr + && objPtr->internalRep.twoPtrValue.ptr2 != NULL) { return (Option *) objPtr->internalRep.twoPtrValue.ptr2; } - } + }*/ /* * The answer isn't cached.

Actually, the easiest way is to check the patches directly from the subversion repository: http://svn.mandriva.com/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/packages/cooker/perl-Tk/current/SOURCES

The log mentions that this patch comes from Fedora. And this bug was found and resolved on Fedora: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=431330 Jerome, can you test or apply this solution on Mandriva's perl-Tk ?
patch updated on mandriva. perl-Tk-804.28.0-13mdv2010.0 on its way for cooker.
