           Summary: Unhelpful error messages with a const opDispatch

          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Windows

          Severity: normal

Modified from code by David in D.learn. This is wrong code:


struct Foo {
    static Foo opDispatch(string s)() const {
        return Foo();
    }
}
void main() {
    Foo f = Foo.bar();
}



DMD 2.064alpha gives:

test.d(7): Error: no property 'bar' for type 'Foo'
test.d(7): Error: Foo is not an expression


The error messages don't help much because they don't explain what's the
problem. The code able to compile is without "const":


struct Foo {
    static Foo opDispatch(string s)() {
        return Foo();
    }
}
void main() {
    Foo f = Foo.bar();
}

Why static const methods are allowed in the very first place? Is there a legit
use case?

I think it's a regression (maybe already reported in Bugzillza), because this code: const void foo() {} void main() {} Used to give: Error: function test.foo without 'this' cannot be const/immutable -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------
