Hey, take a look at it more carefully, the error is yours!
You're basically saying "print the result that fo_o1() gives as a integer".
But you didn't see that method fo_01() returns void, that is, DOESN'T RETURN
ANYTHING. So, how do you want to print a result that doesn't exist?

This will work:

int fo_O1(){ return -1; }
void fo_O2(){ printf("%d", fo_O1()); }

Sure, but the compiler should probably give an error message that's a 
little more helpful. So this could actually classify as an, 
insignificant, compiler bug.

Maybe the point is: the error message could be more readable
for example:
  error: illegal use of void as value
instead of:
  Internal error: ..\ztc\cod1.c 2495

In fact the (little) error is that it is not an "Internal error".

This what you get when you use printf.

Its got nothing to do with 'printf' or 'writef'. The problem is with
varadic arguments. Try this ...


# void somefunc(...) {}
# void fo_O1() {}
# void fo_O2() { somefunc(fo_O1()); }

Good catch. I'm cross-posting this to the bug newsgroup, so that it 
might be easier for Walter to find and fix.

This is what I mean.

BTW. Why to keep varadic arguments in D? I'm just courious. Wouldn't be good
to let it by used with "C" linkage only. IMHO banning it let compiler to
use PASCAL like function returning with asm { "ret <number>" } which I read
is more efficient. I'm not the expert, but I always thought that variadic
arguments lays in C++ becouse of C compatiblity. Maybe D should leave it.
