Description Marek Safar 2017-10-13 10:09:54 UTC
using System;

class X
    public static void Main ()
        "string".Replace ("abcd", "xyz");

1. csc foo.cs -debug
2. mono --profile=coverage --aot --debug foo.exe
3. mono --debug foo.exe

You get NRE crash

We probably shouldn't support aot+coverage right now.
Comment 2 Marek Safar 2017-10-13 14:36:25 UTC
I am ok if we abort with some error message
Comment 3 Marek Safar 2017-10-13 14:37:00 UTC
Thinking about it, does not profiling have the same problem?
Comment 4 Zoltan Varga 2017-10-27 03:23:10 UTC
Profiling doesn't change the generated code, we do ip based sampling.
