           Summary: CTFE fails for ImportExpressions
           Product: D
           Version: 1.017
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: samukha voliacable.com


I believe this should to work, as 'path' is known at compile time:

char[] foo(char[] path)
{
    char[] t = import(path); //Error: file name argument must be a string, not
(path)

    return "";
}

void main(char[][] args)
{
   mixin(foo("template"));
}

Functions to be used in CTFE must still be compilable as normal functions.
Yours doesn't meet that criterion. Try something like:
---
char[] foo(char[] path)()
{
    char[] t = import(path); //Error: file name argument must be a string, not
(path)

    return "";
}

void main(char[][] args)
{
   mixin(foo!("template"));
}

One thing I think should work is hiding the import() in a template, and sending that value off to the CTF. template T_Import (char[] file) { const T_Import = import(file); } template T_Foo (char[] file) { const T_Foo = `foo("`~T_Import!(file)~`")` ; } char[] foo (char[] data) { // ... } void main (char[][] args) { mixin(T_Foo!("template")); } I've used something similar to preload image and font data in an SDL based program. It does work -- and the extra T_Import template maintains one copy of a given file being embedded. (Otherwise fonts at least would sometimes result in two or three copies. Bad bad disc usage, that.) -- Chris Nicholson-Sauls

Thanks for the idea.
