Segmentation fault when a try to catch a InterruptException



I have this code, I’m trying to catch a keyboard interrupt, but what a get it a segmentation fault

  for i in 1:10
catch err
   if isa(err, InterruptException)

Version 0.5.1-pre+55 (2017-02-13 09:11 UTC)
Commit 8d4ef37 (11 days old release-0.5)*




As a note, it seems to work fine on the master branch.


Also the rethrow line won’t actually throw anything and are you sure it’s actually an segfault?


Yes it is a segfault, signal 11.

I’m recompiling everything

make cleanall

And still getting a segfault:

unknown function (ip: 0x40176d)
unknown function (ip: 0x401256)
__libc_start_main at /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (unknown line)
unknown function (ip: 0x40129a)
unknown function (ip: 0xffffffffffffffff)
Allocations: 966693 (Pool: 965785; Big: 908); GC: 0

signal (11): Violación de segmento


Hi again,

I delete all and install from master, and still get:

Am I doing something wrong or it’s time to open a issue?




It seems that you are running from a script and this is the expected behavior. Note that this is not a segfault.


Also note that in a script, you need to do ccall(:jl_exit_on_sigint, Void, (Cint,), 0) in order to turn a SIGINT into an exception. I have no idea why it is like this but it has been like this forever and doesn’t seem to be well documented…


Yes, now in dev-0.6.0 doesn’t throw a segfault in 0.5.1 I still get a segfault.

Either way, I can’t catch the Interrupt exception with the script.

Update: The code works in the REPL.


See my comment above.


Sorry, I didn’t read it.

It works now.

Thank you.
