From the conversation:

Basically, this fails: //---- void main() { void foo(); void foo(int); } //---- Error: declaration foo is already defined //---- I *think* this is according to spec? However, I find this behavior unrational, since you can get it to work with a simple wrap: //---- void main() { static struct S { static void foo(); static void foo(int); } alias foo = S.foo; } //---- Fine! No problem! //---- Given that the second example compiles, I think the D language should allow local function overloading. ... Or, if the issue is one of scope/context/forwardreferences (?) to at least allow overloading of static local functions, eg: //---- void main() { static void foo(); static void foo(int); } //---- --
