digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 16551] New: Compile-time delegate parameters should allow


          Issue ID: 16551
           Summary: Compile-time delegate parameters should allow "scope"
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1

Currently, in order to pass scoped delegates and avoid GC, one must pass the
delegates as run-time parameters, with undesirable consequences.

It would be very helpful to allow them to be passed as scoped and in

alias Foo1 = void delegate()  nogc;
alias Foo2 = scope void delegate()  nogc; // <-- this "scope" seems to be
completely ignored!

// Syntax error, why? :(
// void foo(scope Foo1 x)()  nogc;

// This is allowed, but Foo2 is not truly "scope"
void foo(Foo2 x)()  nogc;

void main()  nogc {
    int x;
    foo!({x+=1;}); // Claims to allocate with the gc, it does not!
