Calling function ast.parse() with large size can cause a segmentation fault in Python 3.5 -3.10. Please check the following two examples. The example 1 works as expected, while the second one triggers segmentation fault on Python 3.5,3.6,3.7,3.8,3.9,3.10. The primary difference between these two examples lay on the value of "n".



Example 1:
=========================================
import ast
mylist = []
n = 100000
print(ast.parse("mylist"+"+mylist"*n))
==========================================

The actual output: AST nodes on Python 3.5-3.10 (as expected)
# <_ast.Module object at 0x7f78d7b672e8>
 


Example 2:
===================================
import ast
mylist = []
n = 1000000
print(ast.parse("mylist"+"+mylist"*n))
# <_ast.Module object at 0x7f78d7b672e8>
===================================

The actual output: segmentation fault on Python 3.5 - 3.10 (not as expected)
