invalid write of size 8 address 0x0 is not stack’d, malloc’d or (recently) free’d


All of the above are okay. I did not delete this message.

I did not send to you.

This is called a “write”. In the case that it is not a stack write, it is a malloced write. The latter is not the case here. The malloced write was a “new” write, and it’s not going away until the heap is freed up.

The word mrawl is a bad enough description, but it is not a new build.

If you find a new build is not returning a valid address, it is likely your system has a bug. I have had several people ask me about this issue and say they were getting invalid write errors.

The original developer who wrote this post says he made the move to a new level of self-awareness, and all the way to the end of his life. If that fails, it’s probably the next level of self-awareness, which is all the more reason that you should have been doing one more thing.

This is what happens when you don’t understand the meaning of ‘the code is there’ or ‘your code is invalid, change it’. You can’t even get it to compile without making changes, and its a simple thing to do if you have a good sense of how things are supposed to work.

You cant do that. You should be adding a few lines of code to your code to let your program recognize it is the size 8 address 0x0 is not stack’d, malloc’d or (recently) free’d. You are using malloc, so that is a good thing, but if you are using (recently) free you should be making that explicit.

So you’ve already made some changes.

A couple of times in the past the size 8 address 0x0 is not stack’d, malloc’d or (recently) free’d has been used to indicate that memory for that particular address is no longer allocated, and this can cause some problems when trying to do pointer arithmetic with that address.
