CSWS PHP 1.3 (PHP Version 4.3.10) %SYSTEM-F-HPARITH

Also, and I'm never sure if you guys want to hear about this sort of stuff, I consistently get the following from deep down in the sharable image (unfortunately it's a non-trivial PHP application - phpMyAdmin), way out of my depth. The rest of the PHP application, and others, works quite well. Don't think it's my fault. Might help you pinpoint an obscure issue.

Re: CSWS PHP 1.3 (PHP Version 4.3.10) %SYSTEM-F-HPARITH

Looks familiar, though using Apache on VMS 7.3-2. I had the same with a plain php application and I was told that there are some issues with this version of PHP.
It mighht (should) be solved with the new vertsion but you will need to install SWS 2.1 (just out)

Re: CSWS PHP 1.3 (PHP Version 4.3.10) %SYSTEM-F-HPARITH

This is the latest version of CSWS PHP Willem (V1.3), released Nov 18th along with HP SWS 2.1, CSWS Perl 2.1, et al. So it's not likely to be fixed in that release ;-)

Please log a case so I can look into this deeper. Hearing your name associated with an(other) HPARITH is a bit of a concern... ;-)

Chances are it's an uninitialised variable. We should be able to track it down.

Hey John, you're right. I'd almost forgotten my fifteen minutes of (in)fame(y) (so-to-speak). I also forget that even open-source can come under a support contract. I'll do that in the morning (providing we still have one ;-)

Re: CSWS PHP 1.3 (PHP Version 4.3.10) %SYSTEM-F-HPARITH

For anyone who's interested...

We have a case logged with HP for this issue. It appears to be an uninitialised floating point variable.

From the message:

>Imask=00000000, Fmask=00000002, summary=02

FMASK indicates register F1, summary indicates an illegal operand. Tracking it down to actual code in PHPSHR it harder, as we don't have access to link maps. However, since the source is available, it should be possible to build a version of PHPSHR with traceback and a full link map.

Code stream looks like this:

PHPSHR+00197C58: SLL R11,#X14,R11
PHPSHR+00197C5C: ADDL R18,R11,R11
PHPSHR+00197C60: STL R11,#X006C(FP)
PHPSHR+00197C64: LDG F1,#X0060(FP)
PHPSHR+00197C68: LDG F10,#X0068(FP)
PHPSHR+00197C6C: LDL R22,#X002C(FP)
PHPSHR+00197C70: LDL R23,#X0028(FP)
PHPSHR+00197C74: CMPULT R31,R15,R15
PHPSHR+00197C78: CPYS F7,F7,F12
PHPSHR+00197C7C: CPYS F7,F7,F13
PHPSHR+00197C80: DIVG F1,F10,F1
PHPSHR+00197C84: AND R22,R4,R26
PHPSHR+00197C88: BIS R23,R26,R26
PHPSHR+00197C8C: XOR R23,#X01,R23
PHPSHR+00197C90: BIS R23,R22,R22
PHPSHR+00197C94: CMPGLE F1,F8,F11
PHPSHR+00197C98: FBEQ F11,#X000015

The fault PC is the CMPGLE, but I think it's more likely to be the DIVG a few instructions higher (the trap shadow for a DIVG is *many* instructions)

The LDGs higher up look like they might be coming from a homed argument list.

Re: CSWS PHP 1.3 (PHP Version 4.3.10) %SYSTEM-F-HPARITH

Thanks to John (and a maintenance contract - just hanging in there) we have some possibilities for further investigation. As this will need to happen in my own time it may not be for a few days (perhaps next weekend). I'll not close this thread until we have something definite or (I) have given up.

I should have added that PHPSHR behaves this way regardless of whether it's being used from within CSWS V2.1 or WASD's own PHP enrionment (which uses the CSWS PHPSHR). It was just easier (for me) to get a traceback via WASD. I only know how to check the error_log for fingerprints of such misdemeanours in Apache children.
