           Summary: array member call syntax fails when array is returned
                    from "property" syntax
           Product: D
           Version: 1.041
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: rejects-valid
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: cbkbbejeap mailinator.com


When you want to use the "myArray.myFuncTakingAnArray()" syntax on an array
that's returned from a function, it fails to compile if the array-returning
function is called using "getArray" instead of "getArray()".

-------------
char[] getArray()
{ return "hello"; }

void useArray(char[] str)
{ /* stuff */ }

void main()
{
        int i;
        i = getArray().length; // Ok
        i = getArray.length;   // Ok

        getArray().useArray(); // Ok
        getArray.useArray();   // Error: no property 'useArray' for type
'char[]'
}
-------------

This is true in D2 as well. With dmd 2.040, this problem still exists.

With current versions of DMD, 'getArray' in the example above should be
 property.

In 2.057head, following code works, by fixing bug 6927.

string getArray()
{ return "hello"; }

void useArray(string str)
{ /* stuff */ }

void main()
{
    int i;
    i = getArray().length; // OK
    i = getArray.length;   // OK

    getArray().useArray(); // OK
    getArray.useArray();   // 2.057head OK
}
