2018-09-12reduce spurious inclusion of libc.hRich Felker-1/+0
libc.h was intended to be a header for access to global libc state and related interfaces, but ended up included all over the place because it was the way to get the weak_alias macro. most of the inclusions removed here are places where weak_alias was needed. a few were recently introduced for hidden. some go all the way back to when libc.h defined CANCELPT_BEGIN and _END, and all (wrongly implemented) cancellation points had to include it. remaining spurious users are mostly callers of the LOCK/UNLOCK macros and files that use the LFS64 macro to define the awful *64 aliases. in a few places, new inclusion of libc.h is added because several internal headers no longer implicitly include libc.h. declarations for __lockfile and __unlockfile are moved from libc.h to stdio_impl.h so that the latter does not need libc.h. putting them in libc.h made no sense at all, since the macros in stdio_impl.h are needed to use them correctly anyway.
2018-09-12overhaul internally-public declarations using wrapper headersRich Felker-2/+1
commits leading up to this one have moved the vast majority of libc-internal interface declarations to appropriate internal headers, allowing them to be type-checked and setting the stage to limit their visibility. the ones that have not yet been moved are mostly namespace-protected aliases for standard/public interfaces, which exist to facilitate implementing plain C functions in terms of POSIX functionality, or C or POSIX functionality in terms of extensions that are not standardized. some don't quite fit this description, but are "internally public" interfacs between subsystems of libc. rather than create a number of newly-named headers to declare these functions, and having to add explicit include directives for them to every source file where they're needed, I have introduced a method of wrapping the corresponding public headers. parallel to the public headers in $(srcdir)/include, we now have wrappers in $(srcdir)/src/include that come earlier in the include path order. they include the public header they're wrapping, then add declarations for namespace-protected versions of the same interfaces and any "internally public" interfaces for the subsystem they correspond to. along these lines, the wrapper for features.h is now responsible for the definition of the hidden, weak, and weak_alias macros. this means source files will no longer need to include any special headers to access these features. over time, it is my expectation that the scope of what is "internally public" will expand, reducing the number of source files which need to include *_impl.h and related headers down to those which are actually implementing the corresponding subsystems, not just using them.
2017-09-04overhaul environment functionsAlexander Monakov-43/+33
Rewrite environment access functions to slim down code, fix bugs and avoid invoking undefined behavior. * avoid using int-typed iterators where size_t would be correct; * use strncmp instead of memcmp consistently; * tighten prologues by invoking __strchrnul; * handle NULL environ. putenv: * handle "=value" input via unsetenv too (will return -1/EINVAL); * rewrite and simplify __putenv; fix the leak caused by failure to deallocate entry added by preceding setenv when called from putenv. setenv: * move management of libc-allocated entries to this translation unit, and use no-op weak symbols in putenv/unsetenv; unsetenv: * rewrite; this fixes UB caused by testing a free'd pointer against NULL on entry to subsequent loops. Not changed: Failure to extend allocation tracking array (previously __env_map, now env_alloced) is ignored rather than causing to report -1/ENOMEM to the caller; the worst-case consequence is leaking this allocation when it is removed or replaced in a subsequent environment access. Initially UB in unsetenv was reported by Alexander Cherepanov. Using a weak alias to avoid pulling in malloc via unsetenv was suggested by Rich Felker.
2016-03-06env: avoid leaving dangling pointers in __env_mapAlexander Monakov-0/+1
This is the minimal fix for __putenv leaving a pointer to freed heap storage in __env_map array, which could later on lead to errors such as double-free.

2012-10-21as an extension, have putenv("VAR") behave as unsetenv("VAR")Rich Felker-5/+5
the behavior of putenv is left undefined if the argument does not contain an equal sign, but traditional implementations behave this way and gnulib replaces putenv if it doesn't do this.
