z3.egg eof handling bug

Reported by: Tony Sidaway Owned by: Tony Sidaway
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: extensions Version: 4.1.x
Keywords: z3 egg eof Cc:
Estimated difficulty:


This refers to revision 16161, z3.egg as of 9 October, 2009.

If an attempt is made to read from a compressed input file port (z3:open-compressed-input-file) after the eof is reached, it throws an error like this:

Error: (z3:read-decoded) can not read encoded data - Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character

This is because it is attempting to fetch data that isn't there.

Suggested fix: bind an eof flag with a value of #f in the let* clause inside z3:open-compressed-input-file. In read-next, set the flag to #t on encountering an end of file condition, and check the flag on each call to read-next prior to attempting to read further characters from the input file, simply returning #!eof if it is set.
