libyaml fails to identify simple keys in very long files on 32-bit platforms

Reported by: ppelletier@… Owned by: xi
Priority: normal Component: libyaml
Severity: normal Keywords:


I have file which contains thousands of relatively short YAML documents, so the file is large (nearly a gigabyte) but the individual documents are not.

I can provide this file if necessary, but I'm not attaching it because it's so large (982M uncompressed, and still 45M when bzip2'ed).

I was getting this error:

Parser error: while parsing a block mapping at line 9259457, column 5
did not find expected key at line 9260367, column 5

This error occurs in both libyaml-0.1.2 and libyaml-0.1.3, but only on 32-bit machines (I tried Ubuntu 8.04 for x86-32, and Intel Mac OS X 10.5 with the compiler in 32-bit mode). If I parse the same file with libyaml on a 64-bit machine (e. g. Ubuntu 8.04 for x86-64), it parses successfully with no error.

I eventually tracked this problem down to an overflow in pointer arithmetic in yaml_parser_save_simple_key(), in yaml-0.1.3/src/scanner.c on line 1125. I changed this:

        simple_key.token_number = 
            parser->tokens_parsed + parser->tokens.tail - parser->tokens.head;

to this:

        simple_key.token_number = 
            parser->tokens_parsed + (parser->tokens.tail - parser->tokens.head);

which caused my file to be parsed successfully, even on 32-bit platforms. So, I would recommend adding this fix to libyaml-0.1.4. Thanks!

I've attached a short program which demonstrates the bug. Sorry for not doing this earlier. The program fails on a 32-bit machine and succeeds on a 64-bit machine. I used gcc 4.2.4 on Ubuntu 8.04, but this problem shows up on any 32-bit machine: I've seen it on Linux and OS X using gcc, and on Windows using Visual Studio.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Thank you for the patch, applied in [371].

I'm afraid it could still overflow token_number on a very big file (say, >4G) on a 32-bit machine. I guess it should be considered a limitation, not a bug, but, perhaps, libyaml should be able to detect it and report a proper error?

The second issue is that the emitter escapes non-ASCII characters even when all characters are printable (according to 'c-printable' in the YAML spec) when using an encoding (UTF8) that supports such characters. I don't find this as elegant as could be. Instead of the "Fran\xE7ais" output above, I would have hoped for the UTF8-encoded byte string Fran\xc3\xa7ais\n.
