digitalmars.D - More Compile-Time Reflection

reply "Jonathan Marler" <johnnymarler gmail.com> writes:
It would be great to have more access to compile time data 
structures such as struct/class/interface definitions. Data 
structures for things like method definitions would need to be 
added.  Any thoughts on this?

What specifically are you looking for? You can get names, 
overloads, parameters, return values, and attributes of 
struct/class methods with reflection today. See 
__traits(allMembers), etc., and the phobos std.traits module.

See also x.tupleof property which returns a tuple of all the members of x, x being either a struct or class. Typical use foreach (member; structure_or_class.tupleof) { // perform some side-effect with member } /Per

For some examples of extra templates using tupleof, see https://github.com/jacob-carlborg/orange/blob/master/orange/util/Reflection.d
