Great improvement by introducing anchored type! thanks Walter!

Please also update the doc, (I tried, it works)

old doc:

int opCmp(Object o);

should be changed to:

int opCmp(typeof(this) o);

By default opCmp(anchored typed) is called; if it doesn't exist, then
opCmp(Object o) is called.


Same for opEquals.

"Nothing new under the sun" as says Book of Ecclesiastes. I didn't know that my proposition from thread "Covariance fix" (http://www.digitalmars.com/d/archives/digitalmars/D/Covariance_fix_was_Idea_Lazy_upcasting_51296.html) was already invented before and even has its name: "anchored types" :-) It seems that "anchored types" works, but not in full extent in D. My example still doesn't work (dmd 1.010): abstract class Storage { typeof(this) param1(int p1) { this.p1 = p1; return this; } private: int p1; } class SpecificStorage : Storage { public: typeof(this) param2(bool p2) { this.p2=p2; return this; } private: bool p2; } void main() { // ...ok... ...ok... ...ups! SpecificStorage s = (new SpecificStorage).param2(true).param1(5); } Implementing this will greatly simplify my program. :-)

Unfortunately, it has to be (Object o) or the derived opCmp won't override the
base opCmp.
