           Summary: Template Arguments, Aliases, or Typedefs Generate Error
                    when used inside inline ASM blocks
           Product: D
           Version: 1.015
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: rejects-valid, spec
          Severity: major
          Priority: P3
         Component: DMD

Best to describe it using an example. Here is a copy of the post I've put in D
forum:

I made the following example to see how far can inline asm blocks use template
args: (Note: This bugzilla is about statement #1 only. For #4, I'll open
another one)
         ========================================
         void asm_template(T)(T Tval,T* pDest)
         {
                 asm{
                         fld Tval;
                         mov EAX,pDest;
                         fstp T ptr[EAX];        //#1
                         fstp float ptr[EAX];    //#2
                         mov EDX,T.sizeof;       //#3
                         mov ECX,float.sizeof;   //#4
                 }//asm
         }//asm_template

         void main()
         {
           float f1=4.0;
           float f2=5.0;

           asm_template!(float)(f1,&f2);
         }
         ========================================
 Here is the compilation result of the 4 statements marked above:
 #1: ERROR: "cannot use type float as an operand"
 #2: OK
 #3: OK!!!
 #4: ERROR: "ptr expected"

For me, if #1 would be illegal, then the error should not have mentioned "type
float". In other words, why would it fail if T is correctly interpreted to
float? In conclusion, it would make sense if such statement would be accepted,
thus enabling writing general ASM code.

The sizeof issue (line 4) is already opened (Issue # 1252).
