#3796 Works For Me Execute() cause crash (-1073741819) with some strings containing punctuation. Jpm steipal@…

Execute(Dec.<string>) = Crash, because "Dec" is a function? Execute(String.<string>) = Crash, because "String" is a function? Execute(Dec.<number><string>) = Crash, because it contain string? Execute(.<string>) = Crash. Reason unknown to me.

Execute(Dec.<number>) = OK. Reason unknown to me. Execute(String.<number>) = OK. Reason unknown to me. Execute(Dec. <string>) = OK, because of space between . and string? Execute(Bec.<string>) = OK, because "Bec" is NOT a function?

So the rule seem to be crash under the following scenarios: Execute(valid_function.<string>) Execute(.<string>)

The example functions used (Dec, String) is arbitrary. And when I write that Execute is OK it means it does not crash. No matter if the string result is empty/error. The bug is also present in

#3795 Wont Fix Missing documention for MapAppend() Robinson1

So far documentation for Map Management is only available in french. At the international/english site it is missing: So in detail that concerns:

  1. MapAppend
  2. MapExists
  3. MapKeys
  4. MapRemove
  5. IsMap

Would be also nice to have that new functions listed in au3.api so they get known to the syntax checker and tidy. (Should I create a separated ticket for that?)

Beside that ticket I also issued a forum post about:

#3794 Fixed StringRegExp - string passed by value instead by reference? Jon AspirinJunkie


; create a very large string (should be about 400 MB because UTF-16 is used)
Global $sString = ""
For $i = 1 To 20 * 1024 * 1024
    $sString &= "xxxxxxxxxx"

; precompile pattern
StringRegExp("", "^.")

; determine time required for a small input string:
$iT = TimerInit()
StringRegExp("Test", "^.")
ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("RegEx with small input string: % 8.3f ms\n", TimerDiff($iT)))

; determine time required for a large input string:
$iT = TimerInit()
StringRegExp($sString, "^.")
ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("RegEx with large input string: % 6.1f   ms\n", TimerDiff($iT)))


RegEx with small input string:    0.012 ms
RegEx with large input string:  328.1   ms

The execution time depends directly on the size of the input string although only the first character of the string is processed. If instead of StringRegExp a StringLeft or a StringMid is used then the execution times are independent of this.

This leads to the assumption that in the implementation of StringRegExp() at some point the input string is passed as "by value". This would require the creation of a local copy of the string and would explain the loss of time.

If it is really a "by value" problem, i suggest to switch completely to "by reference" internally if possible. This would mean a massive performance gain for StringRegExp especially with large strings.
