           Summary: Fixed-sized array length not accessible in pure

Severity is 'minor' because there is a simple workaround.

D2 code:


int[3] foo;
void main() pure {
    auto n = foo.length;
}


DMD 2.055 gives:
test.d(3): Error: pure function 'main' cannot access mutable static data 'foo'

But I think this code is correct because foo.length is a compile-time constant,
so it doesn't break the purity of the main.

Workaround:


int[3] foo;
void main() pure {
    auto n = typeof(foo).length;
}
