digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 6225] New: Some common null test mistakes


           Summary: Some common null test mistakes
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: diagnostic
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: nobody puremagic.com
        ReportedBy: bearophile_hugs eml.cc

In the following four cases of "if" I think it's better to receive warnings
from the compiler, because the code probably contains mistakes (this compiles
with no errors on DMD 2.053):

struct Foo {
    int x;
    bool foo() { return true; }
void main() {
    Foo* p;
    int* arr = (new int[5]).ptr;

    if (p != null || p.x) {}
    if (p == null && p.foo()) {}
    if (!p && p.foo()) {}
    if (arr == null && arr[3]) {}
