2020-12-09lift locale lock out of internal __get_localeRich Felker-0/+2
this allows the lock to be shared with setlocale, eliminates repeated per-category lock/unlock in newlocale, and will allow the use of pthread_once in newlocale to be dropped (to be done separately).
2018-10-20adapt setlocale to support possibility of failureRich Felker-0/+2
introduce a new LOC_MAP_FAILED sentinel for errors, since null pointers for a category's locale map indicate the C locale. at this time, __get_locale does not fail, so there should be no functional change by this commit.
2018-09-12declare and make hidden more internal locale functionsRich Felker-0/+2
2018-09-12apply hidden visibility to various remaining internal interfacesRich Felker-9/+9
2018-09-12move __loc_is_allocated declaration to locale_impl.hRich Felker-0/+1
2017-03-21increase limit on locale name length from 15 to 23 bytesRich Felker-1/+1
the old limit was one byte too short to support locale names of the form xx_XX.UTF-8@modifier where modifier is more than 3 bytes, a form which various real-world locale names take. the problem could be avoided by omitting the useless ".UTF-8" part, but users may need to have it present when operating on mixed-libc systems or when it will be carried over (e.g. across ssh) to other systems. the new limit is chosen sufficient for existing/reasonable locale names while still keeping the size of setlocale's static buffer small. also add locale_impl.h to the Makefile's list of headers which force rebuild of source files, to prevent dangerously inconsistent object files from getting used after this change.
2015-06-16byte-based C locale, phase 3: make MB_CUR_MAX variable to activate codeRich Felker-0/+3
this patch activates the new byte-based C locale (high bytes treated as abstract code unit "characters" rather than decoded as multibyte characters) by making the value of MB_CUR_MAX depend on the active locale. for the C locale, the LC_CTYPE category pointer is null, yielding a value of 1. all other locales yield a value of 4.
2015-06-07add multiple inclusion guard to locale_impl.hRich Felker-0/+5
2015-06-07remove redefinition of MB_CUR_MAX in locale_impl.hRich Felker-3/+0
unless/until the byte-based C locale is implemented, defining MB_CUR_MAX to 1 in the C locale is wrong. no internal code currently uses the MB_CUR_MAX macro, but having it defined inconsistently is error-prone. applications get the value from stdlib.h and were unaffected.
2015-06-06make static C and C.UTF-8 locales available outside of newlocaleRich Felker-0/+7
2015-05-27overhaul locale internals to treat categories roughly uniformlyRich Felker-4/+4
previously, LC_MESSAGES was treated specially as the only category which could be set to a locale name without a definition file, in order to facilitate gettext message translations when no libc locale was available. LC_NUMERIC was completely un-settable, and LC_CTYPE stored a flag intended to be used for a possible future byte-based C locale, instead of storing a __locale_map pointer like the other categories use. this patch changes all categories to be represented by pointers to __locale_map structures, and allows locale names without definition files to be treated as valid locales with trivial definition when used in any category. outwardly visible functional changes should be minor, limited mainly to the strings read back from setlocale and the way gettext handles translations in categories other than LC_MESSAGES. various internal refactoring has also been performed, and improvements in const correctness have been made.
2015-05-16eliminate costly tricks to avoid TLS access for current locale stateRich Felker-4/+2
the code being removed used atomics to track whether any threads might be using a locale other than the current global locale, and whether any threads might have abstract 8-bit (non-UTF-8) LC_CTYPE active, a feature which was never committed (still pending). the motivations were to support early execution prior to setup of the thread pointer, to partially support systems (ancient kernels) where thread pointer setup is not possible, and to avoid high performance cost on archs where accessing the thread pointer may be very slow. since commit 19a1fe670acb3ab9ead0fe31859ca7d4fe40dd54, the thread pointer is always available, so these hacks are no longer needed. removing them greatly simplifies the affected code.
2014-07-26implement mo file string lookup for translationsRich Felker-0/+6
the core is based on a binary search; hash table is not used. both native and reverse-endian mo files are supported. all offsets read from the mapped mo file are checked against the mapping size to prevent the possibility of reads outside the mapping. this commit has no observable effects since there are not yet any callers to the message translation code.
2014-07-24implement locale file loading and state for remaining locale categoriesRich Felker-0/+7
there is still no code which actually uses the loaded locale files, so the main observable effect of this commit is that calls to setlocale store and give back the names of the selected locales for the remaining categories (LC_TIME, LC_COLLATE, LC_MONETARY) if a locale file by the requested name could be loaded.
2014-07-02add locale frameworkRich Felker-3/+15
this commit adds non-stub implementations of setlocale, duplocale, newlocale, and uselocale, along with the data structures and minimal code needed for representing the active locale on a per-thread basis and optimizing the common case where thread-local locale settings are not in use. at this point, the data structures only contain what is necessary to represent LC_CTYPE (a single flag) and LC_MESSAGES (a name for use in finding message translation files). representation for the other categories will be added later; the expectation is that a single pointer will suffice for each. for LC_CTYPE, the strings "C" and "POSIX" are treated as special; any other string is accepted and treated as "C.UTF-8". for other categories, any string is accepted after being truncated to a maximum supported length (currently 15 bytes). for LC_MESSAGES, the name is kept regardless of whether libc itself can use such a message translation locale, since applications using catgets or gettext should be able to use message locales libc is not aware of. for other categories, names which are not successfully loaded as locales (which, at present, means all names) are treated as aliases for "C". setlocale never fails. locale settings are not yet used anywhere, so this commit should have no visible effects except for the contents of the string returned by setlocale.
2013-07-22refactor headers, especially alltypes.h, and improve C++ ABI compatRich Felker-1/+1
the arch-specific bits/ has been replaced with a generic and minimal arch-specific bits/ this commit is intended to have no functional changes except: - exposing additional symbols that POSIX allows but does not require - changing the C++ name mangling for some types - fixing the signedness of blksize_t on powerpc (POSIX requires signed) - fixing the limit macros for sig_atomic_t on x86_64 - making dev_t an unsigned type (ABI matching goal, and more logical) in addition, some types that were wrongly defined with long on 32-bit archs were changed to int, and vice versa; this change is non-functional except for the possibility of making pointer types mismatch, and only affects programs that were using them incorrectly, and only at build-time, not runtime. the following changes were made in the interest of moving non-arch-specific types out of the alltypes system and into the headers they're associated with, and also will tend to improve application compatibility: - netdb.h now includes netinet/in.h (for socklen_t and uint32_t) - netinet/in.h now includes sys/socket.h and inttypes.h - sys/resource.h now includes sys/time.h (for struct timeval) - sys/wait.h now includes signal.h (for siginfo_t) - langinfo.h now includes nl_types.h (for nl_item) for the types in stdint.h: - types which are of no interest to other headers were moved out of the alltypes system. - fast types for 8- and 64-bit are hard-coded (at least for now); only the 16- and 32-bit ones have reason to vary by arch. and the following types have been changed for C++ ABI purposes; - mbstate_t now has a struct tag, __mbstate_t - FILE's struct tag has been changed to _IO_FILE - DIR's struct tag has been changed to __dirstream - locale_t's struct tag has been changed to __locale_struct - pthread_t is defined as unsigned long in C++ mode only - fpos_t now has a struct tag, _G_fpos64_t - fsid_t's struct tag has been changed to __fsid_t - idtype_t has been made an enum type (also required by POSIX) - nl_catd has been changed from long to void * - siginfo_t's struct tag has been removed - sigset_t's has been given a struct tag, __sigset_t - stack_t has been given a struct tag, sigaltstack - suseconds_t has been changed to long on 32-bit archs - [u]intptr_t have been changed from long to int rank on 32-bit archs - dev_t has been made unsigned summary of tests that have been performed against these changes: - nsz's libc-test (diff -u before and after) - C++ ABI check symbol dump (diff -u before, after, glibc) - grepped for __NEED, made sure types needed are still in alltypes - built gcc 3.4.6
