Subject:EXC_BAD_ACCESS exception from storein(container) in MYSQL++ on MAC OS 10
View as plain text  
My code, which works fine in Linux (Ubuntu 10.10) looks like this: 

Connection conn(false); 
conn.connect(db, server, user, pass) 
Transaction trans(conn); 
Query query = conn.query("Update blah blah"); 
query.execute(); // inside try,catch,catch block 
query << "Another update"; 
query.execute(); //try 
query << "Yet another"; 
query.execute; //try 
query << "select this, that and the other thing"; 
vector<deepskyStruct> resvec; // deepskyStruct is an ssqls structure 
vector<deepskyStruct>::iterator it; 
for loop through the vector, creating members of class SessionObject from the data 
end for 

start another transaction 
query << "Update a different table"; 
query.execute(); //two more of these 
query << "Select blah, blah blah from a different table"; 
vector(doubleStarStruct> resvec2; 

//Up to here, everything is fine, and I have verified that all the updates took place. I
also know that the first select, storing in resvec, creating the objects, etc. worked,
because when I commented out the stuff for the 2nd table the program completed
successfully with the expected output. 



402	 query.storein(resvec2); 
(gdb) next 

Program received signal EXC_BAD_ACCESS, Could not access memory. 
Reason: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at address: 0x0000041c 
0x93d12a8d in std::string::clear () 

I debugged the process in XCode:

Here is the calling sequence: 

query.storein(resvec); // this is in mycode 

storein(Container & con); // in the Mysql++ library 
storein(con, str(template_defaults) ); 
storein_sequence(con, s); // s is a const SQLTypeAdapter 
UseQueryResult result = use(s); 
while(1) {MYSQL_ROW d = result.fetch_raw_row(); 

the UseQueryResult object result has a private member result_ with these members: 

The first time I call query.storein(resvec), after use(s), the result object has these
counted_ = 0x5016f0 
refs = 0x501cd0 

The code works fine. 
When, after another query to a different table, I call query.storein(resvec2), after the
use(s), the members counted_ and refs_ are both 0x0. Then, when result.fetch_raw_row is
called, the program gets the EXC_BAD_ACCESS error. The debugger window shows this: 

0x98d17a7c <+0000> push ebp 
0x98d17a7d <+0001> mov ebp,esp 
0x98d17a7f <+0003> sub esp,0x18 
0x98d17a82 <+0006> mov eax,DWORD PTR [ebp+0x8] 
0x98d17a85 <+0009> mov DWORD PTR [esp+0xc],0x0 
0x98d17a8d <+0017> mov edx,DWORD PTR [eax] 

the last line is highlighted and a red arrow points to it.
