           Summary: cannot implicitly convert expression (__funcliteral1) to
                    invariant
           Product: D
           Version: 2.017
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

$ dmd -c memberfunptr.d 
memberfunptr.d(9): Error: cannot implicitly convert expression (__funcliteral1)
of type void function(A) to invariant(void function(A))

$ cat memberfunptr.d 
==========================================
import std.stdio;

class A {
  void f() {writefln("f()");}
  void g() {writefln("g()");}
}
alias void function(A) FP;

invariant FP mfp1 = function void(A obj) {obj.f();};  // why this doesn't work?

// the following compiles, but ugly
static invariant FP mfp2;
static this() {
mfp2 = cast(invariant FP)(function void(A obj) {obj.g();});
}
==========================================

Why a function literal is not a constant expression?

Especially after I defining a global top level wrapper function in this case.
Under the hood, it should just be a raw pointer to some memory address, why
this
cannot be a constant?

The 'is not a constant expression' part is covered by bug 2634.

https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/dmd/pull/96
fixes the implicit conversion to immutable.
