Bug in BinSearch MASM32 Lib algo
« on: February 04, 2013, 05:43:03 PM »
Current version of BinSearch code in MASM32.lib is buggy: it doesn't check the matching of a tail bytes of a instring and substring, i.e., it will find a match in the pos 2 in the instring like "12345" for a substring "346", more complex test cases below - first testinstring1 contains NO match, last char of the substring, starting at pos 127 in the instring, is not equal to the last byte of the matched substring, but code doesn't check this. For a second teststring2 - there IS a real match, but it lies below that a false match, so the code returns the wrong results as well.

The test piece below contains fixed version BinSearch_fix, the fix is:

Code: [Select]

  align 4
  Pre_Match:
    lea ebp, [esi+ecx]      ; put current scan address in EBP
    mov edx, [esp+20+16]    ; put pattern length into EDX
    inc edx ; <<< ADD THIS LINE
   
or remove displacement from a memory access and change the loop conditions to a sign check instead of zero check:

Code: [Select]
  Test_Match:
  REPEAT 7
    movzx ebx, BYTE PTR [ebp+edx] ; load last byte of pattern length in main string
    cmp bl, [edi+edx]     ; compare it with last byte in pattern
    jne Pre_Scan            ; exit loop on mismatch
    sub edx, 1
    js Match
  ENDM

    movzx ebx, BYTE PTR [ebp+edx] ; load last byte of pattern length in main string
    cmp bl, [edi+edx]     ; compare it with last byte in pattern
    jne Pre_Scan            ; exit loop on mismatch
    sub edx, 1
    jns Test_Match

    jmp Match

Results for a test piece below:
Code: [Select]
Test #1, there is no match, pos sould be -1, pos: 127
Test #2, there IS a match, pos sould be 201, pos: 127
Fix Test #3, there is no match, pos sould be -1, pos: -1
Fix Test #4, there IS a match, pos sould be 201, pos: 201

Code: [Select]

Hi Alex,

Thanks for reporting this. Just one question first, is this the version from MASM32 v11 ? Saves me looking through older versions.

Hi Hutch, yes, I entangled it with an older one, from MASMv10 package, the current one is ok.
