The comments should explain it:

class U {}
class T : U {}

void main() {
        T*   ptr;
        T[2] sar;
        T[]  dar;

        // all of the following should work according to the "Implicit
Conversions" section of the spec

        tPtr(ptr); tPtr(sar); tPtr(dar);
        tDar(sar);
        uPtr(ptr); uPtr(sar); uPtr(dar); // none of these work
        uSar(sar);                       // doesn't work
        uDar(sar); uDar(dar);            // the first of these doesn't work
        vPtr(ptr); vPtr(sar); vPtr(dar);
        vDar(sar); vDar(dar);            // the latter of these two works, but
isn't mentioned in the spec
}

void tPtr(T*t){}
void tDar(T[]t){}
void uPtr(U*u){}
void uSar(U[2]u){}
void uDar(U[]u){}
void vPtr(void*v){}
void vDar(void[]v){}

Spec partially corrected for DMD 0.176.

The "uDar(dar)" case still isn't mentioned in the spec.
