A problem found by Pelle Mansson:


import std.range: chain;
void main() {
  const string s = "hello";
  auto r = chain(s, s);
}


Compiled with dmd 2.048:

...\dmd\src\phobos\std\range.d(1162): Error: can only initialize const member
_field_field_0 inside constructor
...\dmd\src\phobos\std\range.d(1162): Error: can only initialize const member
_field_field_1 inside constructor


I think a chain() has to work with const strings too (the items need to be
const if one of the iterables given to chain has const items).

What exactly is the purpose of a constant string type?

That type evaluates to const(immutable(char)[]), which wouldn't make much sense
to me.

Note that this will work:

import std.range: chain;
void main() {
    const (char)[] s = "hello";
    auto r = chain(s, s);
}

But I'm not sure if that's what you were after.

Woops, my bad. A string is still appendable, and a const one would not be. I think I understand now. -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------
