           Summary: null Rebindable testing not supported
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: rejects-valid
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2

This D2 program shows that you can't test if a class reference wrapped with
Rebindable is null:


import std.typecons;
const class Foo {}
void main() {
    auto a = Rebindable!Foo(new Foo);
    a = new Foo;
    assert(a !is null); // err
}


DMD 2.050 generates:
test.d(6): Error: incompatible types for ((a) !is (null)):
'Rebindable!(const(Foo))' and 'void*'


Is this the currently correct way to do it? (It works):

assert(a.get() !is null); // OK

I have seen the get() method is not documented on the site, so is that a
temporary limitation caused by the unfinished "alis this" implementation?

(Issue tagged with "Component: DMD" because I think it's a limit of "alias
this").

assert(a !is null); is wrong code.

Bug 4773 is now fixed. Now you are allowed to write:


import std.stdio, std.typecons;
const class Foo {
    invariant() { writeln("*"); }
}
void main() {
    auto a = Rebindable!Foo(new Foo);
    a = new Foo;
    //assert(a); // calls Foo.invariant()
    //assert(cast(bool)a); // doesn't call Foo.invariant();
    auto f = new Foo();
    assert(f); // calls Foo.invariant()
    assert(cast(bool)f); // doesn't call Foo.invariant();
}


So I consider this bug too fixed.
