Subject: thawing a truncated value leaks memory
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 327b
Attempting to thaw a serialized object which has been truncated causes a memory leak. It seems that the parts of the object which have already been constructed are not cleaned up when the retrieve operation fails. I've attached a short script which demonstrates the problem. Details: Storable 2.06 and 2.08 perl 5.8.0 redhat 9

use strict; use warnings; use Storable qw( freeze thaw ); use Devel::Leak; my @x = (1 .. 100); my $frozen = freeze(\@x); thaw($frozen); $frozen = substr($frozen, 0, length($frozen)/2); my $handle; Devel::Leak::NoteSV($handle); thaw($frozen) or print "thaw failed\n"; Devel::Leak::CheckSV($handle);
