In my humble opinion, I think we should be able to write:

void function1(...) {

}

void function2(...) {
    function1(...);
}

Is there any problem with this notation?

Thanks,

or at the very least have some way of combining _arguments and _argptr back into a ... void function1(...) { } void function2(...) { function1(vararg(_arguments,_argptr)); } or as an even more powerful and generic solution some mechanism to allow you to pass all a functions arguments to another function, sort of like a nested function does.

It doesn't seem ambiguous to me. Regan

Sexy. Especially since it lets you build your own vararg lists from scratch. The only other way to accomplish *that* would be to write a shim. This *definately* gets my vote. - EricAnderton at yahoo

FWIW, I agree with this (or any other way to accomplish it). _______________________ Carlos Santander Bernal

FWIW, I agree with this (or any other way to accomplish it).

The only way to do it now is to use the workaround: void helper(TypeInfo[] arguments, va_list argptr) { } void function1(...) { helper(_arguments,_argptr); } void function2(...) { helper(_arguments,_argptr); } But that does not let you modify the argument list. (e.g. if you want to add or remove any arguments) Assuming that va_list is (void*) is *not* portable. Using std.stdarg's va_arg is the way to get them out... --anders
