Invalid read of size 1 [valgrind warning]

P: n/a
Hello, All!

I already posted my question and received valuable feedbacks, I changed my
code as was proposed here but still receive the same error of valgrind. SO,
the code is:

#define DB_IS_FLD_EMPTY(x) (((x) && *(x)) ? 0 : 1)
int db_is_fld_empty(char *fld)
{
return DB_IS_FLD_EMPTY(fld);
}

static int cli_auth2()
{
...
/* the value of 'raw' is fetched from DB */
...
if ( db_is_fld_empty(row[2+idx]) )
...
}

Valgrind's error is:

1 errors in context 1 of 10:
Invalid read of size 1
at 0x804A896: db_is_fld_empty (db.c:147)
by 0x804B94F: cli_auth2 (daemon.c:130)
by 0x804C002: process (daemon.c:336)
by 0x804CADA: main (daemon.c:567)

The value of 'raw' is definitely not NULL, otherwise code would never jump
to the specified loop. Is it possible 'valgrind' makes wrong assumption and
warns me?

That's possible, it's also possibly that you go off the end of the block
of memory. We don't know because you have not provided a complete
compilable program together with sample input exhibiting the problem.
Until you do that all anyone can do is guess. So I suggest changing line
42 of your source to:
a = 6 * 9;

Why do you use the conditional operator? IMO the following would be
much easier to read:

#define DB_IS_FLD_EMPTY(x) (!((x) && *(x)))

You need to provide the smallest but *complete* piece of code that will
compile properly and demonstrate your issue. What you posted isn't
complete, for example, what is row? If row is an array of char then
try db_is_fld_empty(&row[2+idx]).

I should apologize in advance for possible inconvenience, because compilable
piece of code demonstrating 'valgrind' warnings is pretty large and may be
offtopic here (because it uses MySQL library which has nothing with standard
C), anyway I'll take a chance.

Actually, the upper first error indicated by 'valgrind' seems to be related
to MySQL specific functions, so I suppose fixing of these errors may fix
others:

[snip code and valgrind output]

These errors are different from the ones you originally asked about and
valgrind and MySQL are both off-topic here. At this point you
definitely need to find a group that deals with MySQL API issues.
Before you do though, you should try to isolate the code causing the
error to the smallest possible complete program, you should be able to
due this in about 20 lines of code or less. If you do this you will be
in a better position to figure out the problem for yourself and someone
else will be more likely to assist you if you still need help. You
should also explain exactly how your program misbehaves so that you are
not limiting yourself to answers from people who have experience with
valgrind.
