SE crash when enabling spell check while typing
« on: February 27, 2023, 08:31:48 AM »
Running SE 27.0.1.0 (HF 2) on macoS 13.2.1.
I opened options and under languages/C/C++/General I clicked in the "enable spell check while typing" checkbox and clicked apply and SE abended with the following stack.  It's repeatable as it happens every time.  Any thoughts on how I can fix this please?

No luck reproducing this so far. This could be dependent on what source file is already open and the page that is currently displayed.

Hi Clark
Indeed, if I close the project I can enable spell check while typing with no issues.  However, then SE crashes when I re-open the project/workspace.  I recovered that by editing the prefs file.

Is there a way for me to provide a zip file of the current state of SE along with the project files so you can recreate it?

If I zipped up ~/Library/Application Support/SlickEdit/27.0.1 and the project source directory, would that be enough?

If you zip up the config directory and your project source directory, that should be enough.

I've created case CAS-74057-0T0P and uploaded the project as an attachment.  My SE config compresses to 188MB and fails the upload with MOVE UPLOADED FILE FAILED! Is there another way I can get it you?

You can save space by excluding the config subdirectories. tagfiles is large.

Why didn't I think of that   :)
Uploaded the SE config without tagfiles to the case.

Just for posterity (or others reading this thread), in a case like this, it would probably have been sufficient to just export your options and put up the zip file.  Tools > Options > Export/Import Options > Export All Options...

Exporting your options would not include vrestore.slk. Although, it sounds like the restore information in your workspace reproduces this problem.

No luck reproducing this with your uploaded files. Are you running on an Intel mac or M1/M2? I tested on an Intel mac.

Your vrestore.slk file looks like it has about 101 source files open but only about 50ish are there. Can you reduce this test case down and provide all the files? I'm hoping this test case doesn't require a bunch of files but maybe just one that is problematic.

Hi Clark, I'm running this on an m1 max based mac.
I've removed all of the source buffers that are outside of the project I uploaded and it still crashes when enabling spell check while typing.
I've uploaded se3.tar.bz2 to the case with the contents of /Users/rjp/Library/Application Support/SlickEdit/27.0.1 (without the tagfiles) which should hopefully just restore files from the project.
Let me know if there's anything else I can provide.

So far, we have not been able to reproduce it with the files you provided.  So it seems like it's not something special about one of those files. 

You said when you enabled the spell check with the project closed, it worked, but crashed when you opened the project.  We want to check to see if you still get it with a clean configuration.  Go to a terminal window, and start SlickEdit with this command line:

Code: [Select]
/Applications/SlickEditPro2022.app/Contents/MacOS/vs +new -sc /tmp/NoSuchDir

When it starts up, enable the spell check while typing setting for C/C++, and then see if it still crashes when you open up the problem project.

I started SE with a new configuration and hit finish on the setup wizard.  I then changed the spell check when typing option for C++ and opened the offending project.  Unfortunately SE still abended when I opened the project.
The following was output in the terminal that I started SE from:
Code: [Select]
$ /Applications/SlickEditPro2022.app/Contents/MacOS/vs +new -sc /tmp/NoSuchDir

Thanks for doing that.  We're still investigating, and still haven't reproduced it.

Just to be paranoid, when you get a chance, can you run the following from a terminal, and let us know what the output is?

Code: [Select]
cksum /Applications/SlickEditPro2022.app/Contents/smain.dct

Sure, no problem:
Code: [Select]
$ cksum /Applications/SlickEditPro2022.app/Contents/smain.dct

This is a long shot too, but try this.  Save this code to a Slick-C batch macro:  /tmp/which_file.e
Code: [Select]
#include "slick.sh"
defmain()
{
   args:=arg(1);
   filename:=parse_file(args,false);
   if (filename=="") {
      return;
   }
   // We want this one to act like user typed command on command line
   // except we don't look for internal editor commands.
   _str vslickpathfilename=slick_path_search(filename,"");
   // We want this one to act like user is at shell prompt.
   _str pathfilename=path_search(filename,"","");
   _str msg="VSLICKPATH found <"vslickpathfilename">   PATH found <"pathfilename">";
   sticky_message(msg);
}

Then, from the SlickEdit command line, run:
Code: [Select]
    xcom /tmp/which_file.e smain.dct
