The hexedit should look like: On the subject of why the file gets corrupted, I recommend looking for file-locking bugs in the code that’s calling Storable:: Your skill will accomplish what the force of many cannot. Storable is just one big macro! Well I don’t have the full answer but I can fill in the picture.

Your skill will accomplish what the force of many cannot. It may be possible to debug it without this test case but it would be a lot easier if you have at least one problem data structure to validate the patch against. Did I mention I did not like the author’s macro mania much yet ;- As soon as you have ;erl test case and the croak will get you one provided you test and save it it should be relatively easy to track down the issue s Storable is a module I use all the time, as do many others.

PerlMonks went on a couple dates, and then decided to shack up with The Perl Foundation.

As noted it looks like a buffer and offset issue. You will also note that problem occurs at an offset of bytes.

Back to Seekers of Perl Wisdom. It is probably better to do: It will be interesting to find out. It dies out of memory because it tries to malloc 4GB. It crashes again another K or so into the file but the data it is extracting all looks valid.

The number is not negative either it is a large unsigned int.

Catching the croak and the datastructure will prove eprl either way. This immediately identifies a problem profile that needs fixing but more importantly it will give you a test case data structure. Storable is just one big macro! I’ve attached the ‘out-of-memory. I would just mention that you d95 well have corrupted the corruption: I applied the following debugging patch: PerlMonks graciously bestowed by Tim Vroom.

I was too lazy to look at the syntax of yet another macro. There must be an extra byte or two in the original that is triggering the behaviour but where You can also delete the 7 bytes of session.

Unicode/UTFcharacter table – starting from code position D

The hexedit should look like: Replies are listed ‘Best First’. Also we have the same two bytes 06 F5 after session and. What I forgot to mention is that the restored data structure after the 8 bytes of edit stores and retrieves just fine.


Anyway these 4 bytes of data are where our 4 billion comes from. In fact if you get delete the Dd895 my basic knowledge I’m wondering if we could just ASSERT if you attempt to grow the hash key read pool if its not a positive integer. We can all do without it randomly crashing. Others about the Monastery: With prel patch applied the end of the error trace now looks like: You can get the corrupt storable file, out-of-memory.

Hi Matt, You up you are quite possibly right about the cause. This value could be anything from billion. So that is my hint. A storable file happens to be a peel profile gets corrupted somehow and when I attempt to retrieve it, I get an “Out of memory!
