           Summary: Expression uint.max + 1 yields 0 (zero)
           Product: D
           Version: 0.164
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: m.faustino gmail.com


The expression uint.max + 1, yields 0 (zero). For example, the following code
will print "4294967296 == 0":

//----------------------------------------------------------
import std.stdio;

void main()
{
        ulong u = uint.max;
        writefln(u + 1, " == ", uint.max + 1);

}
//----------------------------------------------------------

This is not a bug. Look under Integer Promotions on http://www.digitalmars.com/d/type.html type type of (uint) + (int) is (uint), not (ulong) /Oskar

Shouldn't the bug be the overflow in the constant folding? I would hope that the DMD would error on overflows in constant expressions.

That's how fixed precision integer arithmetic works when it overflows. Not a
bug.

So why (u + 1) doesn't overflow when (uint.max + 1) does? In the code I wrote, aren't those two expressions semantically equivalent? --

u+1 adds 1 to a ulong, which does not overflow because it's a 64 bit type which
is large enough to represent 4294967296. uint.max+1 is a uint, which does
overflow because it's a 32 bit type and not large enough to hold 4294967296.

The expressions are not semantically equivalent.

Ok, thanks. Sorry for the false bug report though.
