Is there a way to get the fully-qualified name of an identifier without

Heh, looks like there isn't. It may be worth filing an enhancement request = for __traits(fullyQualifiedName, foo). BTW, what do you need it for? --=20 Tomek

Yea, I guess so.

Well, it's kind of round-about: It's to obtain the module name of an identifier. This, in turn, is for a trick to automatically detect and print the name of the current module in a unittest tool: http://www.dsource.org/projects/semitwist/browser/trunk/src/semitwist/util/unittests.d?rev=202#L177 It had been working using mangledName and demangle, but it broke when I updated to DMD 2.052: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=5718 I did eventually manage to work around the issue, though, at least in my particular case. But I figure if I'm going to get either the fully-qualified name or a module name, why have the CPU even go through the bother of sending it through the potentially error-prone and/or non-CTFE-compatible noop of mangle->demange? That in mind, something like __traits(moduleName, foo) and __traits(thisModuleName) would probably be good enhancement suggestions, too. :)

Not sure but if I recall correctly you can do ".stringof" to get the name of the module. -- /Jacob Carlborg
