Subject: SEGV parsing of ${#1\x82} and ${#1\x84}
Date: Sat, 19 Jun 2021 14:44:46 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAK1hOcNX1K_o0E7eFDAD2FYE8WCTpj1hUfzyvQstEQ5S=6onHg@mail.gmail.com> (raw)


CTLVAR and CTLBACKQ are not properly handled if encountered
inside {$#...}. Testcase:

dash -c "`printf 'echo ${#1\x82}'`" 00 111 222

It should execute "echo ${#1 <byte 0x82> }" and thus print "3"
(the length of $1, which is "111").

Instead, it segfaults.

(Ideally, it should fail since "1 <byte 0x82>" is not a valid
variable name, but currently dash accepts e.g. "${#1abc}"
as if it is "${#1}bc". A separate, less serious bug...).
