std.functional.curry doesn't work if the first argument (the curried one) is a
function. This is a common enough use case:

import std.functional;
auto foo(T)(T function(T x) f, T x) {
    return f(x);
int bar(int x) { return x * 2; }
alias curry!(foo, &bar) fooBar;
void main() {}

DMD 2.060alpha gives:

temp.d(6): Error: expression & bar is not a valid template value argument
temp.d(6): Error: template instance std.functional.curry!(foo,& bar) error

I think D functional-style programming needs a more flexible/uniform currying.


import std.traits: ParameterTypeTuple;
auto foo(alias F)(ParameterTypeTuple!F[0] x) {
    return F(x);
int bar(int x) { return x * 2; }
alias foo!bar fooBar;
void main() {
    assert(fooBar(5) == 10);

But this is not as flexible. A language that supports functional programming
needs to handle functions as first class citizens.
