Quick Update on C++ Compiler Bug Hunt

by No Bugs" Hare

From the article:

Some time ago, I wrote a post about kscope – mini-project on finding and reporting bugs in modern C++ compilers. The point was that there is a way to use C++ facilities to make C++ code self-mutating (more strictly – pseudo-randomized using externally supplied ITHARE_KSCOPE_SEED macro), which allows finding certain classes of bugs during randomized testing. In the previous post, I wrote about 12 bugs reported, with 3 of them already fixed. I have to admit that since that point, I didn’t have as much time as I’d like to spend on kscope; still, 3 more bugs were reported (2 of them being codegen bugs) – and quite a few were fixed (fortunately, bugfixing is one thing which doesn’t require my participation <wink />)...
