Comment 1 Tobias Burnus 2010-07-01 06:21:38 UTC

Valgrind shows:

==11328== Invalid read of size 8
==11328==    at 0x6CBB86: fold_convert_loc (fold-const.c:1856)
==11328==    by 0x58E7A3: allocate_temp_for_forall_nest_1 (trans-stmt.c:2583)
==11328==    by 0x58F394: gfc_trans_assign_need_temp (trans-stmt.c:2702)
==11328==    by 0x59284C: gfc_trans_forall_1 (trans-stmt.c:3158)
==11328==    by 0x551DFF: trans_code (trans.c:1205)

Failing is the following line in fold-const.c
  tree orig = TREE_TYPE (arg);
which is the second argument in the following line of allocate_temp_for_forall_nest_1:
   unit = fold_convert (gfc_array_index_type, TYPE_SIZE_UNIT (type));

It is set in gfc_trans_assign_need_temp:

  if (expr1->ts.type == BT_CHARACTER && expr1->ts.u.cl->length)
    type = gfc_typenode_for_spec (&expr1->ts);

For the example, expr1->ts.type == BT_CHARACTER but expr1->ts.u.cl->length == NULL.

The symbol itself has:
(gdb) p *expr1->symtree->n.sym->ts.u.cl->length->value.integer._mp_d
$8 = 10

And the size is given by the expression:
(gdb) p expr1->ref->u.ss.start->expr_type

The beginings of a fix

This PR is going to drive me mad!

The immediate cause is a failure to get the TYPE_SIZE_UNIT to calculate the size of the temporary needed for the assignment.  This fixes that part of the problem but moves the focus to the assignment itself.  Something is badly wrong with the temporary's TREE_TYPE but I do not see what it is right now.

Let this be the record of where I got to....

Comment 3 Thomas Koenig 2010-12-29 22:18:34 UTC
Hi Paul,

The problem may well be where Joe pointed it out.


  if (expr1->ts.type == BT_CHARACTER && expr1->ts.u.cl->length)
      if (!expr1->ts.u.cl->backend_decl)
	  gfc_se tse;
	  gfc_init_se (&tse, NULL);
	  gfc_conv_expr (&tse, expr1->ts.u.cl->length);
	  expr1->ts.u.cl->backend_decl = tse.expr;
      type = gfc_get_character_type_len (gfc_default_character_kind,

the fact that expr1 has a substring reference is not taken into account,
so it might be necessary to calculate the length of the string
from expr1->ref->u.ss.end - expr1->ref.u.ss.start + 1.  You may have
to take care not to calculate any functions twice, though.

Hope this helps a little bit.

Still fails:

Comment 5 Dominique d'Humieres 2014-08-29 09:44:36 UTC
This PR is fixed by the patch at https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/fortran/2014-08/msg00114.html. Test that can be executed:

subroutine bug
  character(len=10) :: F_string
  character(len=1), dimension(:), pointer :: p_chars
  p_chars = ['a','b','c','d','e','f','g','h','i','j']
  forall (i=1:len(F_string))
    F_string(i:i) = p_chars(i)
  end forall
  print *, F_string
end subroutine bug
call bug()
