[Issue 2586] New: broken import gcstats

          Summary: broken import gcstats
          Product: D
          Version: 2.023
         Platform: PC
       OS/Version: Linux
           Status: NEW
         Severity: normal
         Priority: P2
        Component: DMD

the file is in dmd-v2.023/src/druntime/src/gc/basic/gcstats.d
and declared: module gc.gcstats;

However, if I do:
import gc.gcstats;

dmd says: module gcstats cannot read file 'gc/gcstats.d'

if I do:

import gcstats;

dmd says: module gcstats cannot read file 'gcstats.d'

So how do I import gcstats?

and more fun:

previously I call: std.gc.getStats(...);

according to:
from  to
std.gc.*()  memory.gc_*()

I tried: memory.gc_getStats(gs);
it says: Error: undefined identifier memory

I tried: core.memory.gc_getStats(gs);
it says: Error: undefined identifier module memory.gc_getStats

I tried: core.memory.gc.getStats(gs);
it says: Error: undefined identifier module memory.gc

I tried: core.memory.getStats(gs);
it says: Error: undefined identifier module memory.getStats

Come on!!!!! is the release package really tested? or the doc accurate at all?

Since that module isn't in the import directory, it should be clear that it's
not intended to be externally visible.  GC stats have yet to be formally
defined in druntime, so there is no public interface for accessing them.  You
can obtain them manually via:

struct GCStats
   size_t poolsize;        // total size of pool
   size_t usedsize;        // bytes allocated
   size_t freeblocks;      // number of blocks marked FREE
   size_t freelistsize;    // total of memory on free lists
   size_t pageblocks;      // number of blocks marked PAGE
extern (C) GCStats gc_stats();
auto s = gc_stats();

But be aware that the structure of GCStats may change.

The package.module now matches the directory and file name, so this would work
if you added the right directories to the import path.
