           Summary: cannot use basic types as template alias parameters
           Product: D
           Version: 1.045
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: rejects-valid, spec
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: nobody@puremagic.com
        ReportedBy: kamm-removethis@incasoftware.de


The spec says template alias parameters accept type names, but basic types don't work:

template T(alias a) { }
alias T!(int) ti; // error: does not match
alias T!(float) tf; // error: does not match
alias T!(Object) to; // ok

This seems to be because Type::toDsymbol returns NULL.

Basic types are keywords, not names. This is an enhancement request.

If template alias parameters are to act consistently with aliases, then it should "just work".

alias int X; // fine
alias X Y; // fine

In that case I withdraw this enhancement request and rather ask that the D1 spec be clarified (where is 'type names' and 'D symbol' defined?).

Would the following replacements in the "Template Alias Parameters" section be correct?

typedef names -> enum, typedef, struct or class names (in the list of valid
arguments)
type names -> class names (in the example)

I believe this has already been clarified.
