digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 21508] New: private class p in file p.d visible outside the


          Issue ID: 21508
           Summary: private class p in file p.d visible outside the file
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd

According to Issue 1441 private classes should not be visible outside the
module it is defined in. If the class is named after the basename of the
module's file the protection does not work:

module p;
private class p {}

unittest {
   import p;
   import std.typecons;
   // p.p is private, code should not compile
   static assert (! __traits (compiles, (new p)));

$ dmd -unittest -main -run m
m.d(5): Error: static assert:  !__traits(compiles, new p) is false

Issue mentioned in
http://forum.dlang.org/thread/vdfrhsrmbjyopzuiufhd forum.dlang.org

If the file p.d is renamed in say P.d and import p is changed to import P the
unittest passes.
