digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 22554] New: moveEmplace should wipe any source that contains


          Issue ID: 22554
           Summary: moveEmplace should wipe any source that contains
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: druntime
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: stanislav.blinov gmail.com

Currently, moveEmplace only wipes sources that contain structs with destructors
and copy ctors. Basically, its current design assumes programs that use GC and
not manual allocations. Seeing as move/moveEmplace are mechanisms to pass
ownership at runtime, they really should do a better job on that and wipe any
sources that contain pointers (with the exception of context pointers of nested
structs). In other words, this:

auto ptr1 = &thing;
auto ptr2 = move(ptr1);
assert(!ptr1); // would fail with current implementation of moveEmplace

Of course, this should extend to all pointers in disguise (static arrays of
void, reference types, slices, delegates, and certainly unions).
