          Severity: regression
          Priority: P2
         Component: Phobos

Found on 2.062 on Windows, haven't tested other platforms, but it would
presumably be the same. Working version is 2.057. I'm not sure if this is a
compiler issue or something in the library instead

int x = 1, y = 2, z = 3;
int *[] a = [&x,&y,&z];
int *b = a;
int **c = a.ptr;

The previous bundle I have reports a no implicit conversion error on the b = a
assignment.

The result of this is (b == c) in raw pointer values and (*b == *c == &x), and
isImplicitlyConvertible!(int*[], int*) is evaluating to true.

Additional info:
- int*[] can convert to int*, but int[] can't convert to int, so it requires a
pointer somewhere
- if I change a from int*[] to int*[3], I get the error I would expect (no
implicit conversion)
- it does work for more than one level of pointers, but the type must match (ie
int***[] -> int***)

This is causing weirdness in the container templates because pointer usage
evaluates to multiple possible templates with isImplicitlyConvertible being
broken and is probably the cause of issue 9518

In D's specification, implicit conversion from T[] to T is not allowed.

The code had accidentally changed to be accepted in 2.061, but the regression
was already fixed in 2.062 (Bug 9259 is directly related to the issue).

Therefore, the OP code is invalid and should not work.

Yes, but the problem is it is compiling without error on 2.062 and that breaks
stuff

Oh... I completely had mistaken. Sorry confusion by my wrong comment. Yes, this is actually a regression. It had occurred from 2.061, and still exists in 2.062. Fortunately, this regression had been found in the 2.063 devel, and already fixed in bug 9539. You would get the fix in 2.063 release.
