           Summary: Doc mistake: a == null is not a.opCmp(null)

             nThis:


Under "Overloading == and !=" the spec claims that "if (a == null)" is
converted to "if (a.opCmp(null))", when it is actually converted to "if
(a.opEquals(null))". This has been reported a few times now, but left unfixed.

Proof: the following program outputs "opEquals\nopEquals\nopCmp\n" and not
"opCmp\nopEquals\nopCmp\n":

class Foo {
        override int opEquals(Object o) {
                printf("opEquals\n");
                return 0;
        }
        override int opCmp(Object o) {
                printf("opCmp\n");
                return 0;
        }
}

void main() {
        Foo f = new Foo();
        if (f == null) {}
        if (f.opEquals(null)) {}
        if (f.opCmp(null)) {}
}
