----------------------------------------
Bug #8364: Vim's if_ruby feature sometimes crash.
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/8364

Author: ynkdir (Yukihiro Nakadaira)
Status: Open
Priority: Normal
Assignee: 
Category: 
Target version: 
ruby -v: ruby 2.0.0p0 (2013-02-24) [x86_64-darwin11.4.2]
Backport: 1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN


This problem was originally reported to vim-jp project.  See
https://github.com/vim-jp/issues/issues/372 (Japanese discussion).

Vim (http://www.vim.org/) is an text editor and it supports embedded
ruby interface so that we can customize Vim with Ruby.  On Mac, ruby
causes crash.

Steps to reproduce:
  $ vim
  :function! F()
  :  ruby nil
  :endfunction
  :call F()
  :ruby 10000.times { 'x' * 10000 }
  Vim: Caught deadly signal ABRT
  Vim: Finished.

Version is:
  Mac OS X 10.7.5
  ruby-2.0.0-p0
  Vim 7.3.918


Maybe the following is minimum C code to reproduce crash.

```c
/* rubyembed.c */
#include <ruby.h>

void rbinit() {
    int dummy_argc = 2;
    char *dummy_argv[] = {"foo", "-e0"};
    RUBY_INIT_STACK;
    ruby_init();
    ruby_process_options(dummy_argc, dummy_argv);
}

void rbexe(const char *src) {
    int state;
    rb_eval_string_protect(src, &state);
    if (state)
        ruby_error_print();
}

void init() {
    int eatstack[1024]; /* perhaps you need more to crash */
    rbinit();
}

int main(int argc, char **argv) {
    init();
    rbexe("10000.times { 'x' * 10000 }");
    return 0;
}
```

```sh
$ cd ~/tmp/ruby-2.0.0-p0
$ ./configure --prefix=$HOME/tmp/opt && make install
$ cc rubyembed.c -I$HOME/tmp/opt/include/ruby-2.0.0 -I$HOME/tmp/opt/include/ruby-2.0.0/x86_64-darwin11.4.2 -L$HOME/tmp/opt/lib -lruby-static

I am not sure that this is correct fix but above problem seems
disappeared with this.

Or perhaps such code is not valid or something is wrong in Vim's if_ruby code?
