comment:1 Changed 10 years ago by Isaac Dupree

Trying again with -O, oddly, succeeded, and produced quite a lot of output that seems to have some relevant WARNING bits in it (attached).

off-topic: I used make stage1 2>&1 | tee ISAACSLOG to record that, and it seemed to slightly re-order some of the (deleted, rest of the) output, I'm guessing depending on whether it was stderr or stdout, compared to outputting directly to the terminal. Any advice on how to do this in a way that works? (write a haskell program that messes with buffering behavior? ;)

Thanks for the report; also happens for me on Linux/amd64.

The failing assertion is this one:

lookupBinding :: IdEnv HowBound -> Id -> HowBound
lookupBinding env v = case lookupVarEnv env v of
            Just xx -> xx
            Nothing -> ASSERT2( isGlobalId v, ppr v ) ImportBound

The references to eqString are:

eqString :: String -> String -> Bool
eqString []       []       = True
eqString (c1:cs1) (c2:cs2) = c1 == c2 && cs1 `eqString` cs2 
eqString cs1      cs2      = False

{-# RULES "eqString" (==) = eqString #-}
-- eqString also has a BuiltInRule in PrelRules.lhs:
--  eqString (unpackCString# (Lit s1)) (unpackCString# (Lit s2) = s1==s2

and it's got a wired-in unique.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed
Test Case: Compile base with -O0

The crash was caused by the eqString rewrite rule creating a forward reference to GHC.Base.eqString. It's all very specific to the (exactly three) BuiltIn rules. It's also specific to -O0, becuase with -O we do an occasional "GlomBinds" to re-do the mutual dependencies.

In fact I was surprised to see that RULES fire at all with -O0. I've committed a patch to make -frewrite-rules into a dynamic flag, off with -O0 and on with -O.

That fixes the crash, so I'm closing this bug.

Thanks for pointing it out.


PS: there are a few other warnings in compiling the base package, but they are harmless. I think.
