digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 415] New: conflicting template functions overloads

           Summary: conflicting template functions overloads
           Product: D
           Version: 0.169
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: benoit tionex.de


void arraycopy( T )( T[] src, T[] trg, int length ){
}

void main(){
    char[] a, b;
    arraycopy( a, b, 1 ); //(1)
    arraycopy( a, b, a.length ); //(2)
}

I don't want to change the main() content:
(2) causes an error because length is uint.
if I change the signature of arraycopy to "( T[], T[], uint)", (1) causes an
error.
If I supply both variations, they conflict. They should not.

void arraycopy( T,U )( T[] src, T[] trg, U length ){
 static if (is(U: int)) //now uint ,int and other type can implicitly cast to
                        //int can be processed
 {
   // do ur job here
 }
}

void main(){
    char[] a, b;
    arraycopy( a, b, 1 ); //(1)
    arraycopy( a, b, a.length ); //(2)
}

ah, u mean the problem is they should not conflict... umm yep , they shouldn't
conflict if they can't be implicitly cast to one type.

umm, i think i should state that more clear, i guess the problem is dmd not
doing enough distinguish check when the template in this collapsed form.
actually if i write
template arraycopy(T)
{
 arraycopy(T[] a, T[] b, int length)
 arraycopy(T[] a, T[] b, uint length)
}
is ok
but the main func in ur example need to modified, so that's not a good idea.

If I may, a more illustrative case:

--------
void func(int a) { 
}

void tfunc()(int a) { 
}

void test() {   
  func(cast(uint) 2);  // OK
  tfunc!()(cast(uint) 2);  // OK
  tfunc(cast(uint) 2); // IFTI breakage
}

The language is working as defined. All the examples have easy solutions. Let's
take the last one:
void tfunc()(int a) { 
}

void test() {   
  tfunc!()(cast(uint) 2);  // OK
  tfunc(cast(uint) 2); // IFTI breakage
}

Fix:

void tfunc(T)(T a) { 
}

Or:

void tfunc()(int a) { }
void tfunc(dummy=void)(uint a) { }
