             nThis:


Issue 302 talks of a long-unimplemented part of D: inheritance of in/out
contracts.  This is about some lesser-known DBC features that are in the D
spec.

"The compiler can be adjusted to verify that every in and inout parameter is
referenced in the in { }, and every out and inout parameter is referenced in
the out { }."

Admittedly, this seems pointless (leading to convoluted code just to use all
the variables), but it's there.

"The in-out statement can also be used inside a function, for example, it can
be used to check the results of a loop:"

There are workarounds for this, but that doesn't excuse anything.

I vaguely recall Walter mentioning an intention to remove these from the spec,
but nothing's happened about this either way.

"The in-out statement can also be used inside a function, for example, it can
be used to check the results of a loop:"

It is noted in the spec that "[t]his is not implemented at this time." The
parameter-checking paragraph could use such a comment as well.

(In reply to comment #1)

 It is noted in the spec that "[t]his is not implemented at this time." The
 parameter-checking paragraph could use such a comment as well.
 

The spec has for a long time been the documentation for the compiler, which is the wrong way to do it. The spec is a spec, and whether there exists a compiler that implements it or not, should not be part of it. DMD's own documentation, should mention it though. --

Whether DMD's documentation mentions it doesn't alter the fact that the fact
that DMD doesn't implement it is a bug.  Because DMD is supposed to be a D
compiler, not a some-subset-of-D compiler.
