digitalmars.D.learn - Template string literal?

reply Jacob Carlborg <doob me.com> writes:
Is it possible to declare string literal of a template type, something 
like this:

void bar (const(T)[] a) {}

void foo (T) (const(T)[] a)
{
     bar("abc"T);
}

foo("def"w);

In this case the string literal passed to "bar" would be of the type 
"wstring".

Is this somehow possible or do I have to create a variable?

Not having D available, I would say this should work: void foo( T )( const( T )[] a ) { bar( cast(T)"abc" ); } Otherwise: template stringSuffix( T ) { static if ( is( Unqual!T == char ) ) { enum stringSuffix = "c"; } else static if ( is( Unqual!T == wchar ) ) { enum stringSuffix = "w"; } else static if ( is( Unqual!T == dchar ) ) { enum stringSuffix = "d"; } else { static assert( false ); } } void foo( T )( const( T )[] a ) { bar( mixin( `"abc"` ~ stringSuffix!T ) ); } -- Simen

I shoulda thought of that. Much cleaner than my solution. -- Simen
