digitalmars.D - Is this a bug with goto?

reply Jerry Quinn <jlquinn optonline.net> writes:
In the spec it says that it's illegal to skip an initialization using goto. 
Unless I'm mistaken, the code below does that for b, s, and c.  However, it
compiles without complaint.

So, should the compiler be complaining, or is the text about goto really saying
that behavior is undefined.  Obviously the latter makes it easier for the
compiler writer :-)

void foo() {
  goto L0;
    int b;
    struct S { int a; this(int c) { a=c; } }
    S s = S(5);
    class C { int a; }
    C c = new C;
 L0: ;
    s.a++;
    c.a++;
}

thanks,
Jerry

(Hi Jerry! Glad to see you're ramping up participation lately.) Yes, that's a bug. There are many other bugs related to jumps, including in switch statements. Andrei
