Description

We have a small program:

witch% cat main.cpp 
#include <locale>
#include <iostream>

int
main(void)
{

    std::locale loc = std::locale("");
    std::cout<<loc.name()<<std::endl;

    return (0);
}

Let compile it and run:
witch% g++ -g -O0 -o tst main.cpp 
witch% ./tst 
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
  what():  locale::facet::_S_create_c_locale name not valid
zsh: IOT instruction (core dumped)  ./tst

This error does not depend of the locale except C/POSIX,
my current locale is en_US.UTF-8:
witch% locale
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8" 
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8" 
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8" 
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8" 
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8" 
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8" 
LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8

Now, let change it to C or POSIX:
witch% LC_ALL=C ./tst
C
witch% LC_ALL=POSIX ./tst
C

So, it works, now let recompile it using Sun CC:
witch% CC -g -o tst main.cpp 
witch% ./tst 
en_US.UTF-8

and (wow!) It works correctly!
Let see in the deep core of libstdc++ :)
witch% gdb tst tst-7045.core 
Core was generated by `./tst'.

Unfortunately, I have not found that file c++locale.cc, what does it do?

gcc, as you see, is 4.9.4 (openindiana)

Thanks to Igor Kozhukhov, he hits this bug in DilOS.

History

#1

Updated by Yuri Pankov over 2 years ago

Guessing from the description, this seems to be a problem in libstdc++, not something we can fix in illumos-gate.

#2

Updated by Yuri Pankov over 2 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Feedback
#3

Updated by Julian Wiesener over 2 years ago

That problem is way older than illumos and has been repoted multiple time since 2004. Afaik there had been a few that did started to work on that but noone ever finished.

The latest updates are at:
https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=41495

If illumos now have the POSIX.1-2008 APIs now, there might be a realistic chance to get that fixed.

#4

Updated by Julian Wiesener over 2 years ago

Illumos-site seems has been fixed: https://illumos.topicbox.com/groups/developer/discussions/Td23a09ce01f2967f

Still needs someone who picks up the gcc stl part
