js_StringToNumber and js_StringToInt32 mess up negative hex conversion


(Core :: JavaScript Engine, defect)

Not set

(Reporter: bzbarsky, Assigned: bzbarsky)



(1 file, 1 obsolete file)

Shell testcase:

  for (var j = 0; j < 3; ++j) {
      print(-16 == "-0x10");

This should print "false" three times.  Instead it prints "false" twice then "true".

The problem is that js_StringToNumber and js_StringToInt32 don't do the "check for negative hex" check that js_ValueToNumber does.

It would be really nice to combine these three codepaths if we can... certainly js_StringToNumber and js_ValueToNumber can use the same code.
Didn't we fix this in 2008?

fwiw, I have a fix in the works here.

Proposed fix

>+template<typename T> struct js_number_traits { };

Put namespace js {...} around this and use NumberTraits (studlycaps typenames) for the template names.

>+template<typename T>
>+static JS_ALWAYS_INLINE T js_strtonumber(JSContext *cx, JSString *str)

Still want line starting with function name.

Function name should be js_StringToNumberType or something like that. The JS_strtod/js_strtointeger naming horrors are just that -- avoid imitating.

Please do file that bug on js_strtod failure being ignored here (at least it's one place now -- thanks!).

I was thinking we could make js_strtod infallible and use jsdouble as its return type for better perf, if we avoid malloc'ing a buffer for really long strings, instead using some generous stack buffer (128 chars? big enough by far for any sane numeric strings), and if the length is too big to fit, we pre-parse the string to see whether it is well-formed. The RegExp for doubles is easy enough to implement by hand in C++:


What the pre-parse pass would do would be throw away insignificant trailing digits (ones that cannot possibly cause rounding to go differently from when those digits are dropped), but of course do no conversion.

Anyway, this is for that other bug.

r=me with namespaced typenames and style nits picked.

Sorry, behind on bugmail -- you already filed bug 551229. Thanks again.

If it's in namespace js, do you still want the "js_" prefix?  Or just call it StringToNumberType?

Righto on the latter.

Indeed.  Looks like the problem is that single-char whitespace strings become NaN when treated as doubles, instead of becoming 0.  Patch coming up.
Pushed to fix that, with r=jorendorff on irc.
