digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 21269] New: ReplaceType on function type does not compile


          Issue ID: 21269
           Summary: ReplaceType on function type does not compile with
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: phobos
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: snarwin+bugzilla gmail.com


import std.typecons: ReplaceType;
alias F = ReplaceType!(int, double, int function());

Compiler output:

/dlang/dmd/linux/bin64/../../src/phobos/std/typecons.d(8958): Error: TypeInfo
cannot be used with -betterC

The cause of this error is the private helper template
replaceTypeInFunctionTypeUnless, which uses the `~=` operator in CTFE. Due to
issue 19268, this causes compilation to fail.
