Issue #9583 has been updated by Josh Cheek.


Makes sense. Seems like it shouldn't cause `ruby -c` to break, though, because the syntax is actually valid, and it would pass if it was given in a file:


$ ruby -e 'puts "__END__"; puts "."*24_568' > f.rb

$ ruby -c f.rb
Syntax OK

$ ruby -r open3 -e 'Open3.popen3("ruby", "-c") { |i, o, e| i.write File.read "f.rb"; i.close; puts o.read }'
-e:1:in `write': Broken pipe (Errno::EPIPE)
	from -e:1:in `block in <main>'
	from /Users/josh/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p247/lib/ruby/2.0.0/open3.rb:217:in `popen_run'
	from /Users/josh/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p247/lib/ruby/2.0.0/open3.rb:99:in `popen3'
	from -e:1:in `<main>'

Example
$ ruby -e 'puts "__END__"; puts "."*24_568' > f.rb; ruby -r open3 -e 'Open3.popen3("ruby") { |i, o, e| i.write File.read "f.rb"; i.close; puts o.read; puts e.read }'
-e:1:in `write': Broken pipe (Errno::EPIPE)
	from -e:1:in `block in <main>'
	from /Users/josh/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p247/lib/ruby/2.0.0/open3.rb:217:in `popen_run'
	from /Users/josh/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p247/lib/ruby/2.0.0/open3.rb:99:in `popen3'
	from -e:1:in `<main>'

If we reduce the size of the data segment by 1 character, it works:
$ ruby -e 'puts "__END__"; puts "."*24_567' > f.rb; ruby -r open3 -e 'Open3.popen3("ruby") { |i, o, e| i.write File.read "f.rb"; i.close; puts o.read; puts e.read }'

If we take it out of the data segment, it is fine
$ ruby -e 'puts "#" + "."*100_000' > f.rb; ruby -r open3 -e 'Open3.popen3("ruby") { |i, o, e| i.write File.read "f.rb"; i.close; puts o.read; puts e.read }'
