digitalmars.D - Q: Delegate Literal in Class Member

reply Russ Lewis <spamhole-2001-07-16 deming-os.org> writes:
In this code, is the delegate literal a stack delegate (i.e. the builtin 
ptr points to the stack frame), or a class delegate (i.e. the builting 
ptr points to 'this')?  If the former, is there some way to make it a 
class delegate?

class Foo {
   void delegate() GetDelegate() {
     return delegate void() {
              return fooFunc(3);
     };
   }

   void fooFunc(int x) { ... }
}

If the delegate literal is a stack delegate, then I can't return it 
(since the stack frame goes away).  But if it's a class delegate, then I 
can return it from the function and let it be called later from any stack.

A class delegate can only be formed from a class member function.

I'm confused.  Isn't that exactly what's going on here?  Or are you 
saying that a class delegate can only be formed with the syntax:
	<var>.memberFuncName
?

No, you've created a delegate literal, which is a nested function. Try
instead &member.
