           Summary: [CTFE] key not found in AA gives bad error message

          Severity: normal

int foo(string s) {
    enum int[string] aa = ["aa":1, "bb":2];
    return aa[s];
}
enum _ = foo("xx"); // line 5
void main() {}


dmd 2.042 gives:

test.d(5): Error: cannot evaluate foo("xx") at compile time
test.d(5): Error: cannot evaluate foo("xx") at compile time


A much better pair of error messages can be:

test.d(3): Error: Range violation. Key "xx" not found in associative array
'aa'.
test.d(5): Error: cannot evaluate foo("xx") at compile time.


Or just (if the symmetry with the run-time error is not considered important):

test.d(3): key "xx" not found in associative array 'aa'.
test.d(5): Error: cannot evaluate foo("xx") at compile time.
