Bug introduced in 10.0 and persisting through 11.0.1
InfiniteLine is new in 10.0.

[CASE:3840702] From your description, I gather you are noticing an unexpected crash while trying to evaluate Graphics@InfiniteLine@{{0,0},x} .

I tested and confirmed your issue and have passed it along to our developers for further diagnosis. -- WRI

I reported this to WRI:

This works fine:

Graphics@InfiniteLine@{{0, 0}, {1, 1}}

This crashes the Front End.
WARNING: A Front End crash results in losing all unsaved work!

Graphics@InfiniteLine@{{0, 0}, x}

Does this happen on everyone's system or is it specific to mine?

  • $\begingroup$ Confirmed on Win10 V11.0.1 $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Crashes all (FE+Kernel) on OSX 10.11 and MMA v 11.0.1. Actually it crashes whatever x is (integer, real, ...). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @SquareOne Really? It does not crash on my system if x is defined to say (1,1). It only crashes when it is undefined, ie. symbolic I thought. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @masterxilo If you replace x with something which is NOT at least a pair of two parameters {_,_}, yes it crashes it all for me. For example replace x with 1 or 16.2 or {12} or any string like : Graphics@InfiniteLine@{{0, 0}, "hello"}, ... $\endgroup$
