• Strange behaviour with PERL.

    From Fabio Bizzi@2:335/364.1 to Michael Dukelsky on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 15:32:26
    Hello Michael, Stas!

    Well, I've modified the filter.pl like suggested by Stas:

    8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--8<--

    #!/usr/bin/perl
    #
    use lib '/home/husky/bin';
    #
    use warnings;
    #
    use pingpong;
    #
    require "/home/husky/bin/netcheck.pl";
    require "/home/husky/bin/netpoint.pl";
    #
    sub filter{
    w_log( "CheckPoint 1" );
    w_log( "$config{name}" );
    w_log( "CheckPoint 2" );
    w_log( "$config{sysop}" );
    w_log( "CheckPoint 3" );
    w_log( "$config{origin}" );
    w_log( "CheckPoint 4" );
    w_log( "$hpt_version" );
    w_log( "CheckPoint 5" );
    w_log( "$links{'2:221/6'}{'name'}" );
    w_log( "CheckPoint 6" );
    w_log( "$links{'2:221/6'}{'password'}" );
    w_log( "CheckPoint 7" );
    if ( !defined( $area ) ) {
    ping_pong( $fromname, $fromaddr, $toname, $toaddr, $subject, $text, $PVT+$K_S, 100 );
    }
    #
    &netcheck;
    &netpoint;
    }
    #
    sub route{
    return route_to();
    }

    I've also cloned by the GIT Repository the husky environment and I've compiled and installed the required versions and libraries, now is all up to date.

    But the behaviour is the same :(

    As you can see the $links{'2:221/6'}{'password'} and $config{sysop} report garbage instead the proper content (checkpoint 2 and 6).

    And the %Links in the PING answer is obviusly empty (you can check sending a ping to 2:335/364)

    Maybe some strange occours in the HPT's perl API with 64bit environment?

    Where I can dig more into it?

    Manu thanks for your help. :)

    If you want to dig into it, set DEBUG=1 in your huskymac.cfg, rebuild everything and run it in the debugger.

    No, I have not. As a first step it is better to try to minimize the configuration causing the error in order to free it from the factors that do not influence the error but can obscure the problem. This step may help you to get some understanding where the problem can be.

    No. My node runs under x64 linux. All is good.

    It seems to me that in this case it is easier to start with "useradd -m fido" and set up everything from scratch.

    Yes, its in one of the config file included in the main config file:

    I've added the line that writes it from Pong.pl to your code, now I'll comment it out.

    The devil in in my old, tired, stupid BRAIN! :(

    The "password" field of the Links isn't defined, because I only have areafix and filefix passwords defined for each link, but not the generic passord because I don't have any link with packet password, so I didn't configured the field "password".

    That's why the w_log reported garbage when asked to print the password field.

    So it looks like that I can't use the Routed option. :(

    I beg your pardon Stas and Michael, my mind is vanishing! :)

    Really thank you for your time Stas and Michael!

    If the field isn't initialized, it could. :)
    I don't know how works the Husky API for PERL, but if the variables are not initalized by default, the reference could point to a random memory zone.

    But I think that Michael could answer to this question much better than me. :)

    How would one distinguish between random memory and a configured password?

    The $config{sysop} reported the correct value, there was this comment in a config file:

    "#SysOp e riservate"

    that was missin the front "#", so the sysop variable was correctly set to:

    "e riservate". :)

    For $links{'2:221/6'}{'password'}, it's simple, I don't have a "password" field

    If you like I can and send you my config.links file, if it could be useful for your investigation.

    Yes, I tried such a config but did not get any garbage instead of password. I got just an empty string.

    If you like I can and send you my
    config.links file, if it could be useful for your investigation.

    In that case I'll have to invent the rest of the config and I'll not see the error again. So please send me your full config. Or you may find some minimal config which still produces the error and send me that minimal config.

    Hi, Fabio!

    29 апр 21 11:58, Fabio Bizzi -> Brother Rabbit:

    I think the devil is in the configs. ;)

    The devil in in my old, tired, stupid BRAIN! :(

    The "password" field of the Links isn't defined, because I only have areafix and filefix passwords defined for each link, but not the generic passord because I don't have any link with packet password, so I didn't configured the field "password".

    You may well write a password, but at the same time enter an empty pktpvd next.

    Link SysOp
    AKA 1:2/3
    password 12345678
    pktpwd
    level 100

    That's why the w_log reported garbage when asked to print the password field.

    So it looks like that I can't use the Routed option. :(

    I beg your pardon Stas and Michael, my mind is vanishing! :)

    In the next version, I will take into account the possibility of the absence of
    a password in the config.

    Really thank you for your time Stas and Michael!

    Have nice nights.
    Brother Rabbit.

    Hi, Oli!

    But an empty password shouldn't return garbage, should it?

    And it does not return the garbage. It returns undef.

    Have nice nights.
    Brother Rabbit.

    Hello Fabio,

    For $links{'2:221/6'}{'password'}, it's simple, I don't have a
    "password" field in any of my Links. If you like I can and send you my config.links file, if it could be useful for your investigation.

    Thank you for the config you sent me. I fixed the bug. Please check it.
