digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 2588] New: std.signals should not use 'length' stealth keyword in indexing

http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2588

           Summary: std.signals should not use 'length' stealth keyword in
                    indexing
           Product: D
           Version: 1.037
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Phobos
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: wbaxter gmail.com


Around line 182 this line appears in std.signals:
                slots[slots_idx + 1 .. length] = null;

This should be changed to:
                slots[slots_idx + 1 .. $] = null;


Or it will fail to compile when Signal is mixed into any class that defines a
.length member.

Oh, and that usage of 'length' should be killed entirely because it's just a
bad idea, as has been discussed before.
