digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 22969] New: Can't mixin name of manifest constant on


          Issue ID: 22969
           Summary: Can't mixin name of manifest constant on right-hand
                    side of alias declaration
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd

As of DMD 2.099.0, the following program fails to compile:

enum e = 0;
alias a = mixin("e");

The error message is:

onlineapp.d(2): Error: alias `onlineapp.a` cannot alias an expression `0`

If the manifest constant is changed to a variable, compilation succeeds:

auto v = 0;
alias a = mixin("v"); // ok
