[Openmcl-devel] Bug when writing to broken pipe?

Dear All,

 

I came across a tiny problem which I would consider a bug: I write a lengthy
output to *standard-output* on a Debian Linux. When I pipe the output to
another linux program and the pipe get broken, closure lisp crashes. Is this
behavior correct? If so, how can I avoid the crash.

 

In my case I pipe to linux less and terminate less by pressed letter q very
soon.

 

My test code is:

 

(defun test ()

  (loop :for i :from 1 :to 10000 :do

     (format t "This is a test line to produce a lengthy output.~%")))

 

(ccl:save-application "test" 

                                     :toplevel-function #'test

                                     :error-handler :quit

                                     :prepend-kernel t)

 

Tested with ccl-1.9 32 and 64 and ccl-1.10 32-bit.

 

fwgz at fwgz14:~/cvsrep-bug$test | less

 

and pressing 'q' very soon leads to

Unrecoverable stack overflow.
