I don't think the answer is that easy though :) I still suspect the
allocator, just don't know how to prove it yet.
Since printf() works, you can sprinkle code into the allocator
functions, and then write up a little main loop that sets
up a buffer of 128 (or so pointers)
The set up a random number generator to randomly pick a slot
in the buffer and a size.
free( buffer[random_index] ) - an address of zero should be a no-op.
buffer[random_index] = malloc( random_size )
buffer[random_index] = realloc( buffer[random_index], random_size )
And watch your allocator work. It should ALWAYS return an aligned
Since Lua is starting up far enough to get to the point where
you can type stuff to the console, I doubt the allocator is
giving you trouble, but you never know...
Can you do something like:
string = "abcdefgh"
for( i=0; i<8; ++i )
printf( "%s\n", &string[i] )
