digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 18578] New: First enum value assigned 0 instead of


          Issue ID: 18578
           Summary: First enum value assigned 0 instead of
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
               URL: https://dlang.org/spec/enum.html
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd

The following example does not compile:

enum Foo { foo1 }
enum Bar : Foo { bar1 }

It fails with the message:

Error: cannot implicitly convert expression 0 of type int to Foo

We can fix it by changing the definition of Bar to this:

enum Bar : Foo { bar1 = Foo.init }

However, the spec (https://dlang.org/spec/enum.html) indicates that the value
of `bar` should already have been `Foo.init`. 

 6. The value of an EnumMember is given by its AssignExpression. If there is no
AssignExpression and it is the first EnumMember, its value is EnumBaseType.init.
It looks like the implementation is assigning the value `0` to the first enum value instead of EnumBaseType.init. Either the spec is wrong or this is a bug. --
