digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 23332] New: core.sync.condition notify methods should be nogc


          Issue ID: 23332
           Summary: core.sync.condition notify methods should be  nogc
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86
                OS: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: druntime
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: garrett damore.org

It would be desirable to be able to notify a condition from  nogc code. 
Underneath, neither Windows nor POSIX require an allocation.

However, the D implementation of this library attempts to handle any error that
comes from the pthread_cond_signal or pthread_cond_broadcast calls and turns
them into a thrown exceeption.

In general, these calls cannot fail on any system, unless they are provided
with invalid inputs.  Given that, it would be IMO perfectly reasonable to turn
this into a runtime error condition (e.g. via an assert or following the method
done for sync.mutex.Mutex.)
