why does the following code fail?


import std.bigint;
void main(){
     BigInt b1 = 1;
     BigInt b2 = 3;

     BigInt e2 = 3;
     BigInt[] b = [b1,b2];
     BigInt[] e = [e1,e2];
     assert(b == e);

Reduced case for bugzilla: import std.bigint; void main() { assert([BigInt(1)] == [BigInt(1)]); } Bye, bearophile

 The only working sigature for array-of-structs-comparison to work is
 
 bool opEquals(ref const BigInt y) const
 
 But this removes the ability to compare against ints.

Why are they templated to begin with? Just for the heck of it? bool opEquals(ref const BigInt y) const bool opEquals(long y) const

No, because then it fails for ulong. It's those bloody C implicit conversions.

hmm... works for me: --- struct A { bool opEquals(ref const A y) const { return false; } bool opEquals(long y) const { return true; } } int main() { A a; ulong b=42; assert(a==b); return 0; } ---

The problem is that values in the range long.max+1..ulong.max get turned into values in the range -1 .. -long.max-1 How can you distinguish them?

which currently is bool opEquals(Tdummy=void)(ref const BigInt y) const bool opEquals(T: int)(T y) const The only working sigature for array-of-structs-comparison to work is bool opEquals(ref const BigInt y) const But this removes the ability to compare against ints. (btw, it should probably be long in the 2nd signature?!) array-comparison should definitely take templated opEquals functions into account, or is there something mentioned in the spec? Matthias
