           Summary: -O causes very long execution time on foreach loop of
                    large array of structs
           Product: D
           Version: 2.019
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: schveiguy yahoo.com


While porting Tango to D2, I've found the attached file (modified to compile
under phobos) doesn't finish compiling in a reasonable amount of time (a.k.a
never).

The data table is from the Tango locale package, I stripped out the struct only
so there isn't any real tango code, just data.

If I compile the file without -O it compiles in 6 seconds, which seems
reasonable since it's 600k of data.

If you comment out most of the lines in the table, it compiles quickly.  As you
add lines back in, the runtime seems to grow exponentially (not scientifically
verified).

This file compiles fine with -O under dmd 1.x, Here's a list of dmd2 compilers
that I had on my system to try out:

2.015, 2.016, 2.018: also fails
2.006, 2.007: works

Note that in 2.006 and 2.007, it compiled much quicker with -O (.3 seconds)
than without -O using the compilers that fail (6 seconds)

BTW, this isn't exactly a blocker for Tango/D2, but in order to get it to work,
I have to hand-compile the file, as the build-script uses -O for all Tango
files.

Pulling out part of the loop body as a separate function or nested function
should work as a workaround.
