Description of problem:
An error raised and caught during an iteration appears to interrupt the iteration.
In the example below the intent is to convert all "strings" into "numbers" when they can be and to ignore all other values.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. `jq '.| tonumber? ' <<< '["1", "2", "a", "3"]'`
Problem seems to have appeared with 1.6-10
This issue has been introduced in commit https://github.com/stedolan/jq/commit/cf4b48c7ba30cb30e116b523cff036ea481459f
It is not fixed upstream yet.
In fact `jq` does not stop iterrating, it just stops converting and printing strings
jq '.| tonumber? ' <<< '["1", "a", "2", 3]'
will print 1 and 3 because 3 is not converted from string.
Here is the PR to discuss and find the fix: https://github.com/stedolan/jq/pull/2400
The issue can be also avoided by providing `--disable-decnum` configure option
I've put up https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/jq/pull-request/5 to address this.
