digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 15784] New: Overload set constructor call should be supported


          Issue ID: 15784
           Summary: Overload set constructor call should be supported from
                    inside a constructor
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: rejects-valid
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd

From issue 15744 test case:
template AddField(T) { T b; this(Args...)(T b, auto ref Args args) { this.b = b; //this(args); // not OK (segfaults, issue 15744) } } template construcotrs() { int a; this(int a) { this.a = a; } } struct Bar { mixin construcotrs; mixin AddField!(string); } void main() { auto bar1 = Bar(5); // OK auto bar2 = Bar("bar", 15); // also OK } In main, outside of construction functions, the Bar's overload set constructor (declared in AddField and constructors mixin template) called is accepted. But from inside the constructor AddField.this(Args...)(T b, auto ref Args args), a constructor call this(args); cannot work. it's merely inconsistent behavior, and should be treated as a rejects-valid bug. --
