2018-09-12overhaul internally-public declarations using wrapper headersRich Felker-3/+0
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-13/+28
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.

2011-07-28fix for setenv bogus var argument handlingRich Felker-1/+1
thanks to mikachu per POSIX: The setenv() function shall fail if: [EINVAL] The name argument is a null pointer, points to an empty string, or points to a string containing an '=' character.
