Hi, me again Cliff.
I've only had time to recheck this against my test case, which is
representative of what I see for real.
int pn_data_vfill2(const char *fmt, va_list ap)
// Process the PROPERTIES constant - this seems OK
uint64_t prop = va_arg(ap, uint64_t);
printf("prop = %llu\n", prop);
pn_bytes_t bytes = va_arg(ap, pn_bytes_t);
printf("pn_data_vfill z, bytes.size = %zu, bytes.start = %s\n",
// Process the char* returned by pn_string_get()
char *start = va_arg(ap, char *);
size_t size = strlen(start);
printf("pn_data_vfill size = %zu\n", size);
printf("pn_data_vfill string = %s\n", start);
E.g. the both passing and retrieving structs approach of your second
approach actually doesn't even compile for me with LLVM le32, I get
cannot compile this aggregate va_arg expression yet
pn_bytes_t bytes = va_arg(ap, pn_bytes_t);
#define va_arg(v,l) __builtin_va_arg(v,l)

ERROR root: compiler frontend failed to generate LLVM bitcode, halting
make: *** [CMakeFiles/test_varargs.dir/test_varargs.o] Error 1
make: *** [CMakeFiles/test_varargs.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2
Though it *does* work if I do "EMCC_LLVM_TARGET=i386-pc-linux-gnu make"
So in a nutshell:
1) if I fudge the LLVM front end pure struct, put struct retrieve
discrete and pure discrete values all work correctly.
2) with the standard emscripten le32 LLVM front end (which is what is
* pure struct (as above) fails to compile
* put struct, retrieve discrete (as with the original Proton code)
gives the wrong results - that messed with my head :-)
* pure discrete values (as with your pn_string_size(msg->user_id),
pn_string_get(msg->user_id),) patch works correctly.
So I'd *really* like it if you could go down the path of your original
patch 'cause that would fix what you've been seeing and let me compile
an accident waiting to happen). I hope that you are agreeable to that?
I think that it would probably be worth putting a comment in the call to
pn_data_fill and within the pn_data_vfill() 'z' case body to document
that it's safer to pass individual entries to va_arg to avoid upsetting
some compilers - it's not entirely an *obvious* thing really :-D

Fraser: can you test if the review board patch (with the struct "in
and out" strategy) works in your case with the unhacked llvm setup?
If that works then I'll go ahead and check it in.
If it fails, please try the first patch. If that works, we will just
have to conclude that compilers have trouble with stucts in this case
and fall back to passing the two basic types. That should be safe to
work in the greatest number of cases.

Fraser Adams commented on PROTON-488:
Oh to be clear
either "struct in and out", or "separate size_t and char* in and out"
what I meant in my previous comment was that the separate size_t and char* in and out is what LLVM
le32 is happiest with, the structs seem to confuse it, I hadn't realised that you'd changed your
original patch to now do "all 'z' encodings to be passed as a single pn_bytes_t struct and
"retrieved" as a single pn_bytes_t struct" - although this arguably looks neater I'd
definitely prefer your first approach.
Windows 7 64-bit VS2010 qpid-proton Crash on Startup with Send / Recv
Project: Qpid Proton
Issue Type: Bug
Affects Versions: 0.6
Environment: Windows 7 64-bit VS 2010
Reporter: Frank Quinn
Assignee: Cliff Jansen
Attachments: PROTON-488-0.patch, qpid-proton-win64-send-crash.png
Steps to recreate:
1. Grab latest 0.6 tarball
2. Start up Visual Studio x64 Win64 Command Prompt (2010) and run "cmake ." to
generate the visual studio files
3. Open Up the newly created Proton.sln in VS2010, right click on qpid-proton
and add the path to python to executable directories
4. In the configuration manager, select qpid-proton and select active configuration to be
Debug, then select "Add" to add x64 support, copying win32 configuration in the
5. Select qpid-proton properties and remove the hard coded /machine:X86 extra
command lines in Linker -> Command Line (MACHINE:X64 should already be in the
command line above so no need to add here)
6. Right click on qpid-proton and select build
Repeat steps 3-6 for send / recv applications. When you run recv, then run
send, you'll get a crash with the (soon to be attached) trace.
