digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 19299] New: string mixins and template mixins should be


          Issue ID: 19299
           Summary: string mixins and template mixins should be allowed in
                    function parameter list
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86
                OS: Windows

          Priority: P1

It would be nice if phobos had a CopyParameters template, which copies both
parameter types and -names, such that this compiles:

void fun(int a, string s);

void gun(mixin CopyParameters!fun) {
    a = 3;
    s = "foo";

When I do this today, the error message says 'basic type expected, not mixin'.

The feature should for string mixins: void foo(mixin("int x")) {}
And for template mixins: void bar(mixin tmp!()) {}
template tmp() {
    int a;
