           Summary: template initialization when alias cannot be read at

The following code compiles aldo s is not readable at compile time:

struct S (alias T) {
  typeof(T) value;
}

void main () {
  auto s = "some";
  s ~= "string";
  S!s value;
}


The side effect of this is the following error:

// Error: function literal __lambda3 (S!(s) a) is not
// callable using argument types (S!(s))

module program;

import std.stdio;

struct S (alias T) {
  typeof(T) value;
}

void f (alias l = x => 1) (string s) {
  l(S!(s).init);
}

void main () {
  auto s = "some";
  s ~= "string";
  f!((S!s a) { return 1; })(s);
}


I am not sure what the correct behavior should be, I think that the first code
should not compile. But if it should, and this is the correct behavior than the
error message should definitely be improved because.

 The following code compiles aldo s is not readable at compile time:
 
 struct S (alias T) {
   typeof(T) value;
 }
 
 void main () {
   auto s = "some";
   s ~= "string";
   S!s value;
 }
That code isn't reading 's', it is only using it to get its type. And all types are known at compile-time. The code is ok.
 
 
 The side effect of this is the following error:
 
 // Error: function literal __lambda3 (S!(s) a) is not
 // callable using argument types (S!(s))
 
 module program;
 
 import std.stdio;
 
 struct S (alias T) {
   typeof(T) value;
 }
 
 void f (alias l = x => 1) (string s) {
   l(S!(s).init);
 }
 
 void main () {
   auto s = "some";
   s ~= "string";
   f!((S!s a) { return 1; })(s);
 }
It doesn't compile because 's' within 'main' and 's' within 'f' are two different variables. You'd have to pass 's' from within main as an alias parameter to 'f'. E.g.: ---- import std.stdio; struct S(alias T) { typeof(T) value; } void f(alias lambda = x => 1, alias str)() { lambda(S!str.init); } void main() { string str = "some"; f!((S!str a) { return 1; }, str)(); } ---- But I'd recommend changing the struct S definition to take a type and use typeof() at the call site to avoid having to use aliases everywhere. -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------

Oh, I see, value can be used in runtime but compile time is only using it's type: import std.stdio; struct S (alias T) { typeof(T) value; void print () { writeln(T); } } void main () { auto s = "some"; s ~= "string"; S!s value; value.print(); }
 
 
 The side effect of this is the following error:
 
 // Error: function literal __lambda3 (S!(s) a) is not

 module program;
 
 import std.stdio;
 
 struct S (alias T) {
   typeof(T) value;
 }
 
 void f (alias l = x => 1) (string s) {
   l(S!(s).init);
 }
 
 void main () {
   auto s = "some";
   s ~= "string";
   f!((S!s a) { return 1; })(s);
 }
It doesn't compile because 's' within 'main' and 's' within 'f' are two different variables. You'd have to pass 's' from within main as an alias parameter to 'f'. E.g.:
I agree, but shouldn't in that case 's' in error message be fully qualified? Or distinguishable in some way?
 ----
 import std.stdio;
 
 struct S(alias T)
 {
     typeof(T) value;
 }
 
 void f(alias lambda = x => 1, alias str)()
 {
     lambda(S!str.init);
 }
 
 void main()
 {
     string str = "some";
     f!((S!str a) { return 1; }, str)();
 }
 ----
 
 But I'd recommend changing the struct S definition to take a type and use
 typeof() at the call site to avoid having to use aliases everywhere.
I wanted to only take a type without using typeof() so I wrote: template S(alias T) if (!is(T)) { alias S = S!(typeof(T)); } struct S (T) { // ... } -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------

Yep. This is covered by Issue 9631, but you can add your test-case there so it isn't missed. -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------
