           Summary: Cannot return from nested functions in contracts
           Product: D
           Version: 0.162
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: rejects-valid
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: deewiant gmail.com


void foo()
in {
        static void checkParameters() {
                return;
        }

        checkParameters();
} body {        
}

The above fails, because "return statements cannot be in contracts" --- which
makes sense, but the return statement in this case is not returning from the
contract, but from a function within the contract. The D documentation says
that "[a]ny other D statement or expression [than assert] is allowed in the
[contract] bodies", so I see no reason for this not to work.

In the case of a void-returning function such as the above, it is naturally
simple to sidestep the issue, but with a more complex function, such as a
recursive one with many possible execution paths, this can be a real problem.
