           Summary: undefined reference to package function called from an
                    interface
           Product: D
           Version: 1.045
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: link-failure
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: nobody puremagic.com
        ReportedBy: diggory.hardy gmail.com


When attempting to call a function with package protection level from an
interface, I get an undefined reference error.


Code:

/** Compiler error - calling a package interface function.
 */
module packageFunc;

interface I {
    package void iPack();
}
class A : I {
    package void iPack() {}
}

void main () {
    A a = new A;
    I i = a;
    i.iPack;    // causes an undefined reference
    (cast(A) i).iPack;  // a workaround
}


The linker error:
# dmd packageFunc.d
packageFunc.o: In function `_Dmain':
packageFunc.d:(.text._Dmain+0x22): undefined reference to
`_D11packageFunc1I5iPackMFZv'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
--- errorlevel 1


Possibly similar to bug 2894.

This just bit me when including package protection to a lot of class functions
in order to implement invariant tests (where package protection is the only
applicable type of protection). I presume it's a bug; haven't tested if it's
also the case with dmd 2.0 or other compilers yet. Any idea if it would be
simple to fix?

It shouldn't be platform specific anyway, but thanks for confirming it also
affects you.

Sorry, I guess this should have been linked to bug 3258.

And this isn't related to Issue 8716 because `a.packageFunc` module gives the
same error.

package methods are non-virtual, so you're not overriding iPack here but
instead introducing a new function in the 'A' class. 'I.pack' is an externally
defined final function, which is why linking fails. If you define a body for
'I.pack' you will see that the compiler won't complain about an interface
method having an implementation, because package (i.e. non-virtual) methods are
allowed in interfaces.

The compiler currently doesn't complain about having a function in the base
class (or interface) having the same name as the one defined in the current
class:

class B
{
    package void iPack()
    {
    }
}

class A : B
{
    package void iPack()  // no errors, neither in D1 or D2
    {
    }
}

But that is a separate issue which would be an enhancement request (I think
there are some opened ones about this).

Agreed, except that I guess package (and private) functions should be legal in
an interface in the first place.
