digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 493] New: Partial IFTI does not work

           Summary: Partial IFTI does not work
           Product: D
           Version: 0.173
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: wbaxter gmail.com


IFTI should try to deduce the parameter types for any template paramters not
specified (if they don't have defaults).

--------
import std.stdio:writefln;

template foo(T,S)
{
    void foo(T t, S s) {
        writefln("typeof(T)=",typeid(typeof(T)),"
typeof(S)=",typeid(typeof(S)));
    }
}

template bar(T,S)
{
    void bar(S s) {
        writefln("typeof(T)=",typeid(typeof(T)),"
typeof(S)=",typeid(typeof(S)));
    }
}


void main()
{
    // OK -- IFTI works happily
    foo(1.0,33);

    // OK -- Full template parameters specified
    bar!(double,int)(33);

    // error: I gave it T and it should be able to use IFTI to guess S, but it
doesn't
    //bar!(float)(33); 
}
---------------

Not sure if this should be a bug or an enhancement, but anyway, especially with
the new variadic templates I think it will become more common to want to have a
few specified paramters and let IFTI guess the rest.

    templatefunc(T, Var...)(Var v) {
       [...]
    }
    templatefunc!(SomeType)(a,b,c,d,e);

    This basically isn't usable if I have to specify all the types for a,b,c,
and d.

DMD 2.011 was enhanced to do this.

 DMD 2.011 was enhanced to do this.
 

And this isn't a bug in D1 because...? As far as I can tell, the spec says only this about IFTI: """ Function templates can be explicitly instantiated ... or implicitly, where the TemplateArgumentList is deduced from the types of the function arguments """ It doesn't say anything about only working when it's convenient or when the stars are aligned properly. The conclusion I draw is that any failure to deduce a type when the information required to deduce it is there is a bug. --

By the way, that's great that it's fixed in D2.
I can confirmed that it does indeed work with 2.011 (but not with 1.075).

The new std.algorithm in DMD 2.011 uses this capability heavily.

That means porting std.algorithm to D1 is basically not practical as of D2.011. 

I'm really going to be bummed if you hold to the line that fixes like this are
really "enhancements" that will not be ported to D1.

This is a bug in DMD 1.0 so I'm sure it will be fixed eventually.  And since
basically all real development is with D 1.0, I sincerely hope we don't have to
wait forever.  This ticket was originally filed in 2006.  It would be nice if
#1650 were fixed at some point as well, since a rather fundamental example in
the D book requires it to work correctly.

Created an attachment (id=267)
 --> (http://d.puremagic.com/issues/attachment.cgi?id=267&action=view)
Patch to backport partial IFTI to dmd. Against llvmdc's dmd frontend. Should be
similar to dmd 1.033.

I only did basic testing, but this patch seems to backport the D2 partial IFTI
changes to D1.

Should this go into llvmdc proper though? If we start diverging from Walter's
definition of D1 too much we'll essentially create a D 1.5... People using this
feature on llvmdc couldn't switch back to dmd easily.

I don't think is a good idea either to make ldc as buggy as DMD just to be
compatible =)

It's the very purpose of compatibility to replicate bugs.

No, the very purpose of compatibility is to replicate *features*! --
