You can debug DMD's frontend. Or Descent. :-P (and find bugs in the port, yay!)

Seriously though, I think this is a big hole in the DMD support of templates.

It's very annoying to get a compiler message that consists of nothing but:

" error: ATemplateFunction: int does not have a .length property"

Where ATemplateFunction is something like

void ATemplateFunction(ArrayT)(ArrayT  x) {
     auto n = x.length;
     ....
}

Great so I know somewhere in my source code I called ATemplateFunction
with the wrong kind of argument.  The compiler knows where it was that
I made the call, but it just doesn't care to enlighten me.  Very
frustrating.

orly? As in haz them now? or can potentially haz at some point in the future if someone decides to do it?

Can haz now. Currently looking like so templerror.d(9): Error: identifier 'wrong' is not defined templerror.d(12): Error: template instance templerror.bar!(int[][][]) error instantiating instantiatied in templerror.d(12): bar!(int[][]) instantiatied in templerror.d(3): bar!(int[]) instantiatied in templerror.d(16): foo!(int) and triggered by errors and static asserts. We had a brief slide about them in our Tango Conference talk. I hope it'll be up eventually... :)

 Is there a DMD patch for that somewhere in bugzilla?

I sent it directly to Walter a few months ago, but I'll also attach it to the enhancement request you just opened.

Excellent! Thanks. Here's hoping Walter applies the patch. --bb
