[clang-tidy] Add check to detect dangling references in value handlers.

Authored by sbenza on Mar 2 2016, 8:22 AM.



Add check misc-dangling-handle to detect dangling references in value
handles like std::experimental::string_view.
It provides a configuration option to specify other handle types that
should also be checked.

Right now it detects:

  • Construction from temporaries.
  • Assignment from temporaries.
  • Return statements from temporaries or locals.
  • Insertion into containers from temporaries.

Does it make D17772 obsolete?

Yes. The other patch has already been abandoned.

I think there are some minor issues with the tests, easily fixed. I wonder if the matchers can catch things inside implementation-defined inline namespaces like std::_v1_::experimental::library_fundamentals_v1::string_view.

Will this (and similar checkers) handle inline namespaces?

73 ↗(On Diff #49629)

What does NOLINT do here?

85 ↗(On Diff #49629)

This (and other) check-messages line looks truncated.

A very similar code has been added recently to clang-tidy/utils/HeaderFileExtensionsUtils.*. Maybe make that code generic enough and reuse it?

82 ↗(On Diff #49629)

nit: The comment can well fit on a single line without making it less readable. Also, please add a trailing period.

116 ↗(On Diff #49629)

This use of internal classes doesn't look nice. Can you add a hasAnyName overload taking a set or an ArrayRef of names (or maybe a template version that'll take a range of something convertible to StringRef)?

162 ↗(On Diff #49629)

nit: Please add a trailing period (and optionally an ellipsis at the start of the comment and at the end of the previous comment).

175 ↗(On Diff #49629)

handleFromTemporaryValue already binds something to bad, which looks suspicious. Should we try to place all .binds() on the upper-most level, when it's possible, to make the whole picture easier to see?

85 ↗(On Diff #49629)

This is intentional. It makes sense to specify the whole message once and remove repeated static text from other CHECK-MESSAGES lines to make them shorter and the whole test more readable.

Minor fixes

24 ↗(On Diff #49629)

It is not the same.
That one is filtering the characters using isAlphanumeric.
Type names can have non-alpha chars as part of template instantiations.

On the other hand, it is a copy of the one from FasterStringFindCheck.
We could move it to a central location.

57 ↗(On Diff #49629)

Yes. hasName() and hasAnyName() have been fixed to look through inline namespaces.

116 ↗(On Diff #49629)

Will do.

73 ↗(On Diff #49629)

Removed. Not needed here.

85 ↗(On Diff #49629)

They are truncated on purpose.
We use the full message in the first one to check the message.
The rest are truncated to fit in 80 chars.

LG. Thank you for one more awesome check!

That one is filtering the characters using isAlphanumeric.

Maybe it shouldn't ;)

Anyways, we have to converge all these, but it's not important to do it in this patch.

117 ↗(On Diff #49998)

It's fine for a follow up, if it's more convenient to you.

I do.
I am waiting on D18275 to fix the problem with using internal::HasNameMatcher directly.

Using new public hasAnyName API.

Still LG. Thank you!

Can you add a synopsis of this new check to docs/ReleaseNotes.rst please?
