Closed Bug 487930 Opened 12 years ago Closed 12 years ago
removal of JSSLOT
_ARRAY _LOOKUP _HOLDER
Currently array_lookupProperty from jsarray.cpp uses a special slot, JSSLOT_ARRAY_LOOKUP_HOLDER, to store the index passed to the function. But this is not necessary since to satisfy JSObjectOps requirements it is sufficient to convert the id itself to JSProperty* and cast it back in array_dropProperty and array_getAttributes. It not only shrinks the code but also free the slot for other uses.
When creating a patch for this bug I noticed a regression that I introduced in bug 486106. There I missed that array_lookupProperty also takes care about the length property. So I will use this bug to fix that as well. I also nominate for 1.9.1 - the bug does not affect browser or js shell, but it could bite other SpiderMonkey users.
Severity: enhancement → normal
The essence of the patch is casting jsid to (JSProperty *) in array_lookupProperty. The rest is fixes to make sure that js_GetDenseArrayElementValue returns the correct result for any id that was accepted in array_lookupProperty. The change required to add JSContext *cx parameter to js_GetDenseArrayElementValue triggering a cascade of changes for Lookup* API in jsapi.cpp.
