darcs apply bundle.dpatch
fails with the error 'hGetBuf: invalid argument (Invalid argument) for very
large patch bundle (my patch bundle has 2.1G)
If I send the patch bundle on the standard input to 'darcs apply', everything
type bundle.dpatch | darcs apply
I used darcs 12.2.5, 64 bit on Windows 10
Thanks for the bug report.
The sources for 2.12.5 to not contain any call to hGetBuf, so I guess
this comes from a library call.
Can you attach the output of
darcs apply bundle.dpatch --debug
(might be large, so you should redirect it to a file). Not sure if this
helps but it may give us an idea where to look.
Unfortunately, there is not match in the debug output. It immediately fails with the above error:
D:\Projects\OPTIMIX\OPTIMIX>darcs apply --debug decompile-produitsimulationdaoimpl.dpatch
Beginning identifying repository .
Done identifying repository .
Identified darcs-2 repo: D:/Projects/OPTIMIX/OPTIMIX
darcs: D:/Projects/OPTIMIX/OPTIMIX/decompile-produitsimulationdaoimpl.dpatch: hGetBuf: invalid argument (Invalid argument)
The fact that there is not much in the debug output does in fact help.
It clearly shows that the error happens right when the patch bundle is
being read from disk. The function that does this is
Darcs.Util.External.gzFetchFilePS. We have to find out why it fails.
Sorry for the latency, I was pretty much distracted by other stuff.
gzFetchFilePS reads the whole file into a strict ByteString. It uses
mmapFilePS unless mingw32_HOST_OS is true as a preprocessor symbol.
Looking at the docs for System.IO.MMap I see that Windows is supported
as well. Perhaps we should remove the #if here and use mmap unconditionally?
There is one more detail where reading from stdin differs: in isGZFile
we seek and read off the number of bytes from the last 4 bytes in the
file and return an Int. I think this fails if the size is greater than
2^31. This is the code:
else do hSeek h SeekFromEnd (-4)
len <- hGetLittleEndInt h
