[Seg faults in test_sre.py while testing limits]
you could try adding a Mac OS clause to the recursion limit stuff in Modules/_sre.c:
#if !defined(USE_STACKCHECK) #if defined(...whatever's needed to detect Max OS X...) #define USE_RECURSION_LIMIT 5000 #elif defined(MS_WIN64) || defined(__LP64__) || defined(_LP64) /* require smaller recursion limit for a number of 64-bit platforms: Win64 (MS_WIN64), Linux64 (__LP64__), Monterey (64-bit AIX) (_LP64) */ /* FIXME: maybe the limit should be 40000 / sizeof(void*) ? */ #define USE_RECURSION_LIMIT 7500 #else #define USE_RECURSION_LIMIT 10000 #endif #endif
replace "...whatever...", and try larger values than 5000 (or smaller, if necessary. 10000 is clearly too large for your platform).
(alternatively, you can increase the stack size. maybe it's very small by default?)
I spotted the USE_STACKCHECK, got curious, and went hunting for it... of course curiousity kills the cat... it's time to got to work now.... meaning that the large number of replies, counter-replies, code and follow up that I'm going to need to wade thru is going to have to wait.
Why you ask, well when you strip Mac OS X down to the core... it's unix based and therefore has the getrusage command... which means that I need to take a look at some of the patches - http://sourceforge.net/patch/download.php?id=101352
In the Public Beta the stack size is currently set to 512K by default... which is usually enough for most processes... but not sre...
