digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 2387] New: Static array terminology


           Summary: Static array terminology
           Product: D
           Version: 2.019
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: spec
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: samukha voliacable.com

Static arrays have two conflicting definitions in the specs. One is any
fixed-length array (in Static Arrays section on Arrays page) and the other is
statically allocated fixed-length arrays, which narrows the previous definition
without modifying the term or introducing a new term (in the section on static
array initializers). Possible disambiguation:

any fixed-length arrays - fixed-length arrays
statically allocated fixed-length arrays - static fixed-length arrays
