digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 17909] New: Inherited aliases produce unlinkable objects in


          Issue ID: 17909
           Summary: Inherited aliases produce unlinkable objects in final
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: jonathan wilbur.space

In the following code, an alias is defined to allow all child classes to access
the member "beep" by the name "boop." The code below compiles just fine, links
just fine, and runs just fine.

abstract class Parent
    alias boop = beep;
    abstract string beep();

class Child : Parent
    override string beep() { return "BEEP"; }

void main ()
    import std.stdio : writeln;
    writeln((new Child()).boop);

However, if the Child class is made "final," the generated object(s) is(are)
unlinkable. From the command line, the error appears like so:

$ dmd ./sanity/test.d
Undefined symbols for architecture x86_64:
  "_D4test6Parent4beepMFZAya", referenced from:
      __Dmain in test.o
ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
Error: linker exited with status 1

This is all in the same file, so the fact that I even get a linker error in the
first place is pretty weird.

Is this expected behavior?

I may be able to test this on a Windows or a Linux machine soon, and I will
