digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 16573] New: string-typed enum values pass isSomeString but


          Issue ID: 16573
           Summary: string-typed enum values pass isSomeString but not
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64

import std.traits, std.range;
enum S { foo = "foo" }
static assert(isSomeString!S); // true
static assert(isInputRange!S); // false

I would expect that all strings are input ranges, so this result is confusing.
In particular, it caused code to break when
https://github.com/dlang/phobos/pull/3447 was merged.

The following used to work:
enum S { foo = "foo" }
import std.file;

The PR range-ified std.file.exists, which should still allow it to accept all
the same types it did before. However, it now fails for S.foo as it is a string
but not a range. I think S.foo should either be both a string and a range, or
