Don Wrote:Before TDPL is published, I think we should finally get rid of C-style declarations. Supporting two styles of declarations just causes confusion, and AFAIK it doesn't have any benefits -- for example, it doesn't significantly help in porting code from C. D declarations are just better. And there are bugs such as this one, which seem to require abandoning C declarations: bug #2392 Parsing ambiguity between function pointer declaration and function call At the very least, can we make sure that TDPL doesn't commit us to retaining them forever?
