           Summary: Code compiled by dmd dies without explanation /
                    exception. Code is attached.
           Product: D
           Version: 0.163
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: tbolsh gmail.com


I found that when I was defining a bug 309.
Here is the code:
import std.boxer;
import std.stdio;

interface A {
    public char[] message();
}
class B : A {
    char []info; 
    this(char []info){ this.info = info; }
    public char[] toString(){ return info; }
    public char[] message(){  return toString(); }
}

void main(char [][]args){
    A aa = new B( "I am A" );
    B bb = new B( "I am A too!");
    Box a = box( aa ), b = box( bb );

    if( unboxable!(A)( a ) ) writefln( "a is A! It says: "~a.toString() );
    else                     writefln( "a is not A! Despite it says:
"~a.toString()  );

    if( unboxable!(A)( b ) ) writefln( "b is A! It says: "~b.toString() );
    else                     writefln( "b is not A! Despite it says:
"~b.toString() );
}
Here is command lines:
 dmd -I/usr/local/dmd/src/phobos TestBoxError.d std/boxer.d

Process dmd exited with code 0
 ./TestBoxError

The reason is that interface A does not has toString() defined ? The bug is connected with 309, I think. It is not severe - workaround is obvious - especially taking in consideration 309. GDC behaves differently:
 gdc -I/usr/local/dmd/src/phobos TestBoxError.d std/boxer.d

delegate(dchar),TypeInfo[],char*,void*) does not match argument types (void delegate(dchar),TypeInfo[2],void[]) std/boxer.d:279: cannot implicitly convert expression (args) of type void[] to char* Process gdc exited with code 1 But:
 gdc -I/usr/local/dmd/src/phobos TestBoxError.d 

./a.out

What is confusing as well. The bug is REALLY confusing, especially for Java programmers, because we know well, that EVERY object has toString. I think that this bug can be relevant to std.format.doFormat or to the way how dmd handles interfaces. --

If main() returns a void, as it does in the example, it will have garbage for
the exit code, which is what you're seeing.

This was fixed in 0.175 or earlier.
