          Issue ID: 12579
           Summary: DMD rejects valid function literal
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1

From the grammar documentation:

Decl: StorageClasses(opt) BasicType Declarator FunctionBody DMD rejects the following code: void function() foo {}; and accepts the following: void function() foo = {}; According to the grammar spec, the latter should be parsed as a variable declaration whose type is "void function()", with a name of "foo" and an empty struct initializer. (By the way, the grammar does not allow empty struct initializers). This should not pass semantic analysis because a struct literal is not of type void function(). --
