Hello,

...when trying to compile...

public class XmlError : Exception

...so I solved the problem by adding "this();" at line 91...

class Exception : Object

     this(); // <----------- *********** HERE ***********
     this(char[] msg);
     void print();
     char[] toString();

...and the compiletime-error went away. I don`t know if anybody had this  
error before, but I`ve never read about something like that in the  
newsgroup yet. Just wanted to point out that :).

I think you misunderstood something; I found this "mistake" inside the object.d of *phobos*. Alex -- huh? did you say something? :o

eek. If you want to throw an Exception that doesn't have an error message then you should subclass Object and not Exception. Note that it looks like a bug that you pass a message to the ctor of the XmlError and it *immediately* prints the message instead of passing it to the Exception ctor.
 class Exception : Object
 {
     char[] msg;

     this(); // <----------- *********** HERE ***********
     this(char[] msg);
     void print();
     char[] toString();
 }

 ...and the compiletime-error went away.

Presumably replaced with a linking error when you tried to use a ctor that doesn't exist?Or did you rebuild phobos?

I believe your error is caused by the implicit "super" call added to your "this" in your XmlError. I believe the correct soution is:
 public class XmlError : Exception
 {
 	this(char[] msg)
 	{

 		writefln(msg);
 	}
 }

Exception does not have a "this()" taking no parameter, perhaps it should, perhaps it shouldn't, I am undecided. Regan

I think requiring a diagnostic message in the exception instance a Good Thing.

You're probably right. In which case I think the real problem encountered here is the error message: "c:\dmd\bin\..\src\phobos\object.d(92): constructor object.Exception.this (char[]) does not match argument types () Error: expected 1 arguments, not 0" This error is 'suggesting' the class is at fault when it's actually the 'implicit' 'super' call to the constructor which needs fixing. I'll post this to the bugs NG. Regan
