digitalmars.D.learn - Fully qualified class name at compile-time

Hello,

I'd like to get the fully qualified name of a class for some CTFE:

`MyClass.classinfo.name`

returns the expected result, but is not evaluated at compiletime.

I already thought about demangle(MyClass.mangleof) but this seems to be bad
coding style and I also didn't find a demangle-function in Tango yet.

best regards

Sadly that's about the best you can do. See: http://www.dsource.org/projects/ddl/browser/trunk/meta/demangle.d For an implementation that will demangle stuff at compile-time and allow you to get FQNs.

take a look at ".stringof", I /think/ it can be used for this.

".stringof" doesn't return the fully qualified name.
