           Summary: Combining two types
           Product: D
           Version: 1.038
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: spec
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: aziz.kerim gmail.com


What is the correct way to unify the types of two operands of a binary
operator? The specs talk here and there a little bit about rules for implicit
conversions, but that doesn't really tell me much about how to implement this
stuff in my own compiler.

I'd love to have a detailed guide for how to actually do semantic analysis in a
D compiler. There really need to be documents that explain the D language with
actual compiler writers in mind. I have seen such a thing for Java some time
ago on the web. I would've given a link, but I don't remember anymore where I
saw it.
Perhaps somebody, who knows the front-end well, could help you out on typing up
these kind of documents? A sort of collaborative project using a wiki system?

Most of the time I simply have no clue what to do, SA is darn complex. :(

could you give an example of what you want?

If you want "What is the type of `int + long`?" take a look at typeof().

If that is what you are looking for, where would you expect to see that info?

I think, arithmetic in D is the same as in C.
