           Summary: char[] template value arguments broken in D2
           Product: D
           Version: 2.027
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: rejects-valid
          Severity: regression
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: clugdbug yahoo.com.au


int foo(char[] c)() { return 0; }

void main(){
        int a = foo!("abc")();
}
---
fog.d(6): Error: template fog.foo(char[] c) does not match any function
template
 declaration
fog.d(6): Error: template fog.foo(char[] c) cannot deduce template function
from
 argument types !("abc")()
fog.d(6): Error: template instance errors instantiating template

This all works in D1.042. Fails in D2.028.
The code below is similar. Also for class and union.
--
struct C(char[] c){ }

void main(){
   C!("abc") a;
}

Um,

string literals are invariant(char)[].

The error message sure sucks, but it's not surprising that this doesn't work.

Indeed.
 The error message sure sucks, but it's not surprising that this doesn't work.

But there is no way that a mutable char [] could be passed as a template value parameter. And it's not a type. So what is template(char[] X) ? int foo(char[] c)() { return 0; } void main(){ char [] z; int a = foo!(z)(); // ok } I can't see anything in the spec to indicate what this means. From the .mangleof, it seems to be accepting it as an alias parameter. OK, I'll change this to a spec error. --

Here's a test case which illustrates the problem better.

int foo(char[])() { return 0; }

bug.d(1): identifier expected for template value parameter

---
So it clearly thinks it is a template value parameter, but it's impossible in
D2 to have a char[] compile-time value! It must be immutable(char)[].
