digitalmars.D.learn - utils.toBulkString is not accesible from utils

Hi,

for following coding there is an error during compilation:

   module utils;

   package string toBulkString(string s)
   {
	  import std.string: format;
	  return "$%s\r\n%s\r\n".format(s.length, s);
   }

   unittest
   {
	  string actual = "foobar".toBulkString();
	  //...
   }

 source\utils.d(11,39): Error: function utils.toBulkString is 
 not accessible from module utils
The error disappears if I change the visibility attribute from package to private. This seems to be a bug, is it? Version: DMD v2.069.0-b2 Kind regards André

I think so, yes. But according to digger, the current behaviour goes back to at least DMD 2.052. Please file a bug report anyway.

I believe that the problem is that there is no package for toBulkString to be in. utils is a top-level module and is not in a package. Now, arguably it should be an error to use the package attribute in such a module rather than giving an error when you try and use it, but I'm pretty sure that that's the source of your problem. If utils were actually in a package, then it should work. - Jonathan M Davis
