Description nick 1999-07-05 13:45:33 UTC
Two fixes applied to printjob.c from lpr-0.35 (the first is
just good practice).  Original file on left, new file on

< 	    dup_cfpname = strdup(file);
< 	    memcpy((dup_cfpname+7), "XXXXXX", 6);
> 	    if (!(dup_cfpname = strdup(file)))
> 	      {
> 		syslog(LOG_ERR, "Can't allocate memory for temp cfp file
name");> 		return(OK);
> 	      }
> 	    memcpy((dup_cfpname+strlen(dup_cfpname)-6), "XXXXXX",

First fix checks that there was memory available for the
Second fix ensures that mktemp has exactly 6 X's at the end
of the string in which to make the filename unique.  NOTE:
It would be better to use mkstemp rather than mktemp.

I hope this makes sense but drop me a line if it does not.

we aren't using mkstemp because we're just trying to make
a temporary file name, not open it.

in any case, this is fixed in lpr >= 0.36.
