digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 18028] New: Allow Unnecessary Template Instantiation To Be


          Issue ID: 18028
           Summary: Allow Unnecessary Template Instantiation To Be Dropped
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd

With function templates, if the template argument(s) have default parameters,
the template parentheses doesn't have to be specified:

void func(T = float)() { }

void main()

However, this is not the case for structs: 

struct Test(T = float)
        T a;

void main()
        auto b = Test(); // Error: struct Test cannot deduce function from
argument types !()()

        auto c = Test!()(); // Compiles

There's no reason to force the user to use explicit template parentheses.
Please allow these to be dropped just like functions.
