------- Comment #1 from thomas-dloop kuehne.cn  2007-01-01 10:35 -------
These aren't 2 functions but a function and a pointer to function.
To get the intended functionality replace

void  function  (Handle, byte, wchar*, uint) udat_applyPattern ;

with 

void udat_applyPattern  (Handle, byte, wchar*, uint);

I've changed the severity from "normal" to "enhancement" as the original issue 
is currently illegal D but also an interesting use case.

umm , shouldn't call it an enhancement. it's more important than an enhancement
at least it's around minor level. and it breaks existing code

------- Comment #3 from davidl 126.com  2007-04-09 04:31 -------
simplified case:

extern void  function  (char*) udat_applyPattern ;
void udat_applyPattern(char[] wc)
{
        udat_applyPattern(cast(char*)wc);
}

void main()
{
}

i think it's about the completeness of the dmd function type calling system and
the completeness of type matching system.
so I remark it as normal level

This is not a bug. There aren't two functions, just one function and a
variable.
Note that if this was allowed, you could reasonably expect a struct with static
opCall to work, as well. And then you ask why _any_ type or variable cannot
overload a function. Add properties into the mix -- it'd be a disaster.

I think this bug should be closed as invalid.

I'll leave the decision to Walter.
