Irb: Segmentation fault

Hello folks,

in the following two cases irb fails (I’ve removed spaces from the
=~/^irb/ lines to prevent line breaks):

$ irb
irb(main):001:0>“ahoj”.split(//).join(’|’)
=> “a|h|o|j”
irb(main):002:0>“ahoj”.split(/(?<=(?![Cc][Hh]).)/).join(’|’)
SyntaxError: compile error
(irb):2: undefined (?..) sequence: /(?<=(?![Cc][Hh]).)/
from (irb):2
irb(main):003:0>“ahoj”.split(/(?!ch)/).join(’|’)
=> “a|h|o|j”
irb(main):004:0>“achoj”.split(/(?!ch)/).join(’|’)
=> “ac|h|o|j”
irb(main):005:0>“achoj”.gsub(/([Cc])([Hh])/,’$1_$2’).split(/(?![Hh])/).join(’|’)
=> "a|$|1|
|$|2|o|j"
irb(main):006:0>“achoj”.gsub(/([Cc])([Hh])/,’\1_\2’).split(/(?!_[Hh])/).join(’|’)

[“Neúspì¹nì ukonèen” is perhaps some Czech translation of SIGABRT]

If I repeat it exactly as shown, irb fails. I’ve tried to skip some
statements, but only the fourth could be skipped to get Segmentation
fault — and even in this case the error message differed (and return
value was got compared to the first case). Skipping whichever else does
not lead to failure. I haven’t tried simplifying of the statements too
much (only a bit, but unsuccessfully with respect to retain the irb
failure).

Please, could someone test it with current version of ruby/irb?

Where should one post such bugreports?

Regards,

P.

Maybe you just need a slightly newer version?
