digitalmars.D.learn - Can't make inout work.

reply aliak <something something.com> writes:
This is the set up I have, and I'm not sure how to get the main 
function at the bottom to compile. The error in the code below is 
that it cannot implicitly convert an inout(C) to a C in the 
constructor of S(T).

If you remove the constructor that takes an inout then you get a 
"cannot deduce function from argument types !()(inout(C))" 
because there's no constructor that can take in inout.

If you remove the inout form the function "f", then "a.f" cannot 
be deduced because there's no f that takes an inout(C).

If you remove the inout from the "make" function, then you get: 
"only parameters or stack based variables can be inout."

Anyone knows how to make this work?

struct S(T) {
     T value = T.init;
}

auto ref make(T)(inout auto ref T value) {
     return S!T(value);
}

auto ref f(T)(inout auto ref S!T s) {
     return make(s.value);
}

void main() {
     class C {}
     const a = S!C();
     a.f;
}

Cheers,

You need an explicit `inout` on the return value of `make`: auto ref make(T)(inout auto ref T value) { return inout(S!T)(value); }

I think (but may be wrong) that you don't need inout here, since a plain 'ref' will (and does) work. This is accepted by me (I added vars to make the code clearer to myself): struct S(T) { T value = T.init; } auto ref make(T)(ref T value) { return S!T(value); } auto ref f(T)(ref S!T s) { return make(s.value); } void main() { class C {} C c ; auto s1 = S!C(c) ; auto s2 = make!C(c) ; auto s3 = f!C(s2) ; }

 }
This code fails to compile if you change `auto s2` to `const s2`--in other words, it has the same problem as the original example.

Maybe there's not much need for qualifiers anyway. struct S(T) { T value; } auto make(T)(ref T value) { return S!T(value); } auto f(T)(ref T s) { return make(s.value); } void f() { class C {} C c; auto s1 = S!C(c); const s2 = make!C(c); auto s3 = f(s2); }

This is what I meant as well. diniz

Ah! Thanks! So next problem with that: import std.stdio; struct S(T) { T value; } auto make(T)(inout auto ref T val) { return inout(S!T)(val); } void main() { writeln(make("hello") == S!string("hello")); } Error: Error: incompatible types for (make("hello")) == (S("hello")): immutable(S!(char[])) and S!string I think that's just this bug (which is marked as a diagnostic for some reason): https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19126 Thoughts on any workarounds?

Hmm, that actually works for opEquals. But now you just hit the same problem with some other construct, unfortunately: auto x = [make("hello"), S!string("hi")]; same error.

For some reason, when you call `make("hello")`, the template argument T is being inferred as char[] instead of string. (You can see this by putting `pragma(msg, T)` in the body of make.) It works if you instantiate make explicitly with `make!string("hello")`. This seems like a bug to me. If you remove inout from the code, T is correctly deduced as string.
