[Haskell-cafe] Can't figure out source of race condition when using
xs at xaph.net
Sun Nov 2 09:02:12 EST 2008
Greetings Gentlemen (and Ladies),
As part of my small and simple framework for making presentations in
Haskell I have a module which, given some text, makes a .tex file and
then converts it to .svg for loading into a cairo canvas.
It features simple caching (performs md5 on the contents of the .tex
file and uses that as the file name... if an .svg by that name exists,
it'll get loaded rather than regenerated).
Unfortunately, it also segfaults once in a while, probably indicating I
have some kind of race condition ... but I can't figure out why. This is
the only point in my code that I think I'm using any concurrency,
although I'm compiling with ghc --make -threaded. Compiling without
-threaded results in a deadlock.
Ubuntu 8.10, 64-bit, GHC 6.8.2.
Any advice? I'm attaching the module in question (79 lines).
