Issue #13324 has been updated by srodman7689 / gmail.com (Sean Rodman).


The command I use to run it directly on the ruby interpreter is ruby -e "a = \"eval a\"; eval a"

Bug #13324: IRB Segmentation Fault from eval infinite loop
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/13324#change-63646

* Author: srodman7689 / gmail.com (Sean Rodman)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.3.0p0 (2015-12-25 revision 53290) [x86_64-darwin15]
* Backport: 2.2: UNKNOWN, 2.3: UNKNOWN, 2.4: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
I am not sure if this has already been taken care of or not but I am using ruby 2.3.0 and irb 0.9.6(09/06/30) and when I run the below code I get a segmentation fault
`a = "eval a"; eval a`
when running the same code with just the ruby interpreter I get the below error which is what I would expect
`-e:1:in `eval': stack level too deep (SystemStackError)
	from (eval):1:in `<main>'
	from (eval):1:in `eval'
	from (eval):1:in `<main>'
	from (eval):1:in `eval'
	from (eval):1:in `<main>'
	from (eval):1:in `eval'
	from (eval):1:in `<main>'
	from (eval):1:in `eval'

	from -e:1:in `eval'
	from -e:1:in `<main>'`
