digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 1858] New: std.string find signature is not string

           Summary: std.string find signature is not string
           Product: D
           Version: 2.011
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Phobos
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: ddparnell bigpond.com


In std.string, the find and ifind routines use char[] rather than string in
their parameter signatures. This seems odd because these functions do not
modify the parameter data and most other 'string' functions use string instead
of char[]. As most other routines use string I find that I have to make
exceptions for these ones in my code.

As a workaround, I need to include the functions below in my code...

int find(string a, string b)
{
    return std.string.find(a.dup, b.dup);
}

int ifind(string a, string b)
{
    return std.string.ifind(a.dup, b.dup);
}

Which involves useless copying.

The signatures I'm seeing in the current release's codebase (2.0) are all using
"in char[]", which is equivalent to "scope const char[]", which accepts
mutable, const, and invariant arrays. Could you show a code sample that has a
problem? FWIW, this compiles and runs fine on my system:

import std.string;

void main()
{
    string a = "abc", b = "bc";
    assert(find(a, b) == 1);
}

Here is the type of code that was giving me trouble.

import std.string;
int function(string a, string b) Finder;
void main()
{
    Finder = &std.string.find;
}

I am assuming the compiler is smart enough to work out which 'find' function
I'm after by using the signature provided by the 'Finder' declaration.

The example code below works just how I expected the compiler to work. It
displays '10', so I know it found the right 'xfind' function.


import std.stdio;
int function(string, string) lFind;
void main()
{
    lFind = &xfind;
    writefln("%s", lFind("abc", "def"));
}

int xfind(string x, string y) { return 10; }
int xfind(ubyte[] x, ubyte y) { return 20; }
int xfind(char *x, double y) { return 30; }

Oh I see. This is best solved in the language - a function type F1 should be
implicitly convertible to another function type F2 if all of F1's parameters
are subtypes of the corresponding parameters in F2.

Arrays of const are a subtype of arrays of invariant (and actually this is
another feature that is needed in a number of places), which takes care of the
case in point.

So I hereby assign this to Walter. :o)
