Bug #10223: Stack level too deep in CSV when parsing long line
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10223#change-49973

* Author: Aleksander Pohl

* Target version: current: 2.2.0
* ruby -v: ruby 1.9.2p290 (2011-07-09 revision 32553) [x86_64-linux], ruby 2.1.2p95 (2014-05-08 revision 45877) [x86_64-linux]
* Backport: 2.0.0: REQUIRED, 2.1: REQUIRED
----------------------------------------
The following code:

~~~ruby
#!/usr/bin/env ruby                                                                                                                                                        
# encoding: utf-8

require 'bundler/setup'
require 'csv'

CSV.open("csv_error.csv") do |input|
  input.each do |category,*mappings|
    # do nothing
  end
end
~~~

with the data file attached causes the follwing error:

~~~
/usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.2-p290/lib/ruby/1.9.1/csv.rb:1768: stack level too deep (SystemStackError)
~~~

Interestingly almost the same code:

~~~ruby
#!/usr/bin/env ruby                                                                                                                                                        
# encoding: utf-8

require 'bundler/setup'
require 'csv'

CSV.open("csv_error.csv") do |input|
  input.each do |tuple|
    # do nothing
  end
end
~~~

works fine. The error appears both in Ruby 1.9.2 (ancient) and Ruby 2.1.2. So I suppose it is an error inside CSV lib.


This might be important for any developer parsing CSV files comming from the outside world, since it may cause DOS error.
