digitalmars.D.learn - Syntax of isExpression

Hey guys,
could you help me understand the syntax of the isExpression?
I have an example, leaned on documentation

https://dlang.org/spec/expression.html#IsExpression

case 7.

// Code starts here //
import std.stdio, std.typecons;

alias Tup = Tuple!(int, string, bool);

enum myType {a, b, c}

struct E(T, myType ET, bool P) { T parts; }

void main()
{
     auto r = E!(int, myType.a, true)();
     fun(Tup.init);
     writeln("-----");
     fun(r);
}

void fun(T)(T t)
{
     static if (is(T : TX!TL, alias TX, TL...))
     {
         writeln(is(TL[0] == int));
         writeln(typeid(TL[1]));
         writeln(typeid(TL[2]));
         writeln(is(TL[2] == bool));
     }
}
// Code ends here //

The question is: why during testing with Tup the last line gives 
"true" and with the struct it is false? Especially, while the 
line before is the same for both cases.

That's because 'true' is not the type 'bool' but a value of bool. You can ask whether the type of a value is bool: writeln(is(typeof(TL[2]) == bool)); But then it fails for the Tuple case because typeof(bool) is not bool in that case. You need to cover all cases if both 'bool' and 'true' mean the same thing for you. Ali
