Subject: Memory leak when parsing HTML documents with errors
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 320b
When investigating bug #79118, I found that XML::LibXML leaks memory when parsing HTML files with errors (if the recover option is *not* set). The HTML parsing code in LibXML.xs should call LibXML_will_die_ctx and destroy the result if it returns true, like the XML parsing code does. See attachment for a test script.

#!/usr/bin/perl # Feeding XML::LibXML with an invalid file, triggering memory leaks use strict; use warnings; use Devel::Leak; use XML::LibXML; check_libxml_memory(); sub check_libxml_memory { make_trouble(); # Run once to initialize stuff. my $handle; my $leaveCount = 0; my $enterCount = Devel::Leak::NoteSV($handle); print STDERR "ENTER: $enterCount SVs\n"; make_trouble(); # Trace how loading a bad doc affects memory $leaveCount = Devel::Leak::CheckSV($handle); print STDERR "\nLEAVE: $leaveCount SVs\n"; } sub make_trouble { my $parser = XML::LibXML->new; eval { my $doc = $parser->load_html( string => '<lkj/>', ); } or warn($@); $@ = undef; } 1;
