As the .stringof representation often changes between compiler versions, it is
not suitable for code generation because it is unreliable.

 As the .stringof representation often changes between compiler versions, it is
 not suitable for code generation because it is unreliable.
Wouldn't a better solution be to define exactly what .stringof should return? Implementation-defined semantics should be avoided where possible since it breaks portability. -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------

I can't see anything in Kenji's comment that suggests it couldn't be properly defined? -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------
