digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 14064] New: Error message about attributes incomplete.

https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14064

          Issue ID: 14064
           Summary: Error message about   attributes incomplete.
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P1
         Component: DMD
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: issues.dlang jmdavisProg.com

This code

 deprecated void func() {}
void main() {}

results in this error:

q.d(1): Error:  identifier or  (ArgumentList) expected, not  deprecated
q.d(1): Error: valid attributes are  property,  safe,  trusted,  system,
 disable

Notice that the list of valid   attributes is missing  nogc (presumably,
because it's new). Also, if the change for issue# 13388 doesn't get reverted,
then  nothrow,  pure, and  return will need to be added to the list.

Ideally, I would think that the error message would treat the problem a bit
like happens with a spelling error for variables, and ask if you meant
"deprecated" instead of " deprecated" - at least as long as  deprecated hasn't
been declared as a UDA anyway - but if we're going to give a list of built-in
attributes with  , the list should be correct and complete.
