|Subject:||Tk regex search crashes debugger|
This runs fine but causes a SEGV crash in the debugger on multiple platforms and versions of Perl: use Tk; my $m = MainWindow->new; my $t = $m->Text->pack; $t->search('-regexp', '', '1.0', 'end'); # debugger crash For instance, Linux with Perl 5.12.4 and Tk 804.029; Linux with Perl 5.14.2 and Tk 804.030; Windows Vista using Perl 5.10.1 and Tk 804.029. We want to be able to use the debugger to clean up a perl Tk editor with 20000+ lines of code. This tool called Guiguts is used to produce thousands of eBooks for Project Gutenberg each year. First priority is to work around the SEGV; second is to fix the SEGV.
