TCanvas::SaveAs crashes

ROOT Version: 6.18 for centos
Platform: Not Provided
Compiler: g++

Dear ROOT community,

I tried to build several graphs with use of std::function, as it is presented in the script temp.cpp (2.7 KB)
And strange things happen.

I marked some functions with numbers {1…4} in comment section. I am bulding a TGraph by filling x and y array. x is filled uniformally while y is filled with value equal to fraction of two integrals which integrands are those functions {1…4}. And here what happens:
Taking a fraction of 1 & 3 produces correct output:


Taking a fraction of 2 & 4 produces axis…:
Taking a fraction of 2 & 3 works too
Taking a fraction of 1 & 4 produces segfault

So you see the problem. What is interesting here is that each x,y array is actually filled and it is actually done fairly good. So when segfault happened, I checked everything and as it turned out, it was a TCanvas::SaveAs who produced the segfault. It seems that any other error such as not building a fraction of 2 & 4 is the same issue.

The stack trace is as follows:

Thanks in advance.

It seems that I fixed every issue just with excluding possibility of x be zero, because at that point y was -nan. Is there any built-in way to exclude possibility of such situation in future?

Hi @Silence2107,
Thank you for reporting your issue and including a solution. Probably your best bet is to filter out the null values inside the std::function itself. Maybe @couet could have some more input for you
Cheers,
Vincenzo

We cannot test NaN at the graphics level: that will too consuming in time and penalise the code not generating NaN.

Thank you for clarification.
Anyway, maybe it is not bad idea to include possibility of providing filtering function pointer? Just another overload of SaveAs, which will be used while testing code. This does not crack other projects. Or it is too much to oveload?
S.

Your issue is probably not with with TCanvas but rather with the input data you are giving to the TGraph constructor. You should either check them in the function itself (or in the for loop) or you could give a try at the RDataFrame api that provides a Filter method.
Cheers,
Vincenzo
