digitalmars.D.bugs - out parameters not initialised

Using DMD 0.94, Windows 98SE.

out parameters are set to the default initializer for the type of it. 
For example:

	void foo(out int bar)

	int bar = 3;
	// bar is now 0

No it isn't!  A simple printf anywhere in this code suffices to show 
that the initialisation never happens.  The same occurs whether it's a 
primitive type, array or struct.

I.e. the compiler hasn't been taught the difference between inout and out.


My e-mail is valid but not my primary mailbox, aside from its being the 
unfortunate victim of intensive mail-bombing at the moment.  Please keep 
replies on the 'group where everyone may benefit.
