I've recently seen people using template instances like:

mytemplate!int var;

The docs don't say anything about this form, nor do the release notes for that
matter.  Either it's a bug (I assume not) or the spec needs to document it.

I assume this form is only good for single template parameters.  Are there
other limits on what parameters can be used in this way?

in template.html, modify TemplateInstance: TemplateIdentifier !( TemplateArgumentList ) to TemplateInstance: TemplateIdentifier !( TemplateArgumentList ) TemplateIdentifier ! Identifier TemplateIdentifier ! BuiltinBasicType TemplateIdentifier ! Literal Literal: null true false __FILE__ __LINE__ NumericLiteral CharacterLiteral StringLiterals but then in declarations.html you'd have to split up BasicType a bit. And yes, this can't work for multiple parameters because the commas would cause ambiguity with Expression. Same for identifier chains: T!A.B == T!(A).B or T!(A.B) ? and extended types: T!i[] == T!(i)[] or T!(i[]) ? etc. -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------
