Of course it doesn't. You can't set the length of an AA: - you can't use it to add elements, because an AA element cannot exist without a key - you can't use it to remove elements, as how would it know which to remove?x["hello"] = 1; // doesn't work, array out of bounds x[TEXT_x] = 1; // doesn't work, array out of bounds
Works for me (DMD 1.009, Win98SE). Which version and OS are causing a problem for you? <snip>Is it possible to use opIndex etc to override associatives?
What do you mean? Stewart.
