digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 223] New: Error message for void.init doesn't specify error location

           Summary: Error message for void.init doesn't specify error
                    location
           Product: D
           Version: 0.161
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: diagnostic
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P3
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: deewiant gmail.com


int i = void.init;

The above code correctly produces the error "integral constant must be scalar
type, not void". Alas, DMD neglects to inform where the error occurred: even
when compiling a large project containing many long files, the error message is
precisely the quoted string.

Whilst not strictly speaking a bug, I believe this is enough of an issue that
it merits fixing.

What makes you think it's "not strictly speaking a bug"?

Poor wording, or a brain fart, on my part. It is a bug, but since the error is
reported correctly it's not that big of a deal.

The same incomplete error is generated for the following code:

void main()
{
        const int x;
}

DMD v0.166:
UnhandledError(0,0): Error: integral constant must be scalar type, not void

The noise past the original bug report seems to have gotten the original bug
overlooked.

void main()
{
    int i == void.init;
}

Produces this error, without a line number for the second error:
  bug223.d(3): Error: void does not have an initializer
  Error: integral constant must be scalar type, not void.

NOTE: dropping the .init part changes the semantics to 'don't default
initialize i' and there's no error at all, which is the correct behavior.

This works now (DMD 1.030 & 2.015).
