MinTL problem
Hey there.

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on a problem I'm having;
I'm currently trying to use MinTL, and keep getting compile errors.  The
source I'm using is:

(optparse.d)
import mintl.list;

int main(char[][] argv)
{
   List!(int) x;
   return 0;
}

Which I compile with:

$ dmd optparse.d mintl.lib

Where the mintl package is on the import path, and mintl.lib is on the
LIB path.  dmd then gives me this:

e:\Bin\Bin\..\Include\other\mintl\list.d(688): operation not allowed on
bool '((*this).isEmpty)()'

I'm sure it's the latest version, since I downloaded it the other day.
list.d says it is revision 2.7.1.

I just can't work out what I'm doing wrong.  Any suggestions?

You're not doing anything wrong - I don't think the MinTL library has 
been updated in quite some time.  Try downgrading compiler versions 
until you find one that works with it if that's acceptable for you. 
Otherwise, ask Ben Hinkle (author) to update it.

Re: MinTL problem
Aah, thanks for that.  I'm just going to use something a little simpler
(and probably less efficient, but oh well :P) for the moment.  If worst
comes to worst, I can always just start my own collection of containers.

Daniel, Ben's MinTL v2.7.1 was released when D v0.128 was out, so if you do
decide to go back...it'll be a pretty long trak back from D v0.153. It would be
a lot better to ask Ben to update MinTL to the more current release of D.

I looked into the bug and it seems like after changing the ~ to ! on line 
688 of list.d everything compiles fine. Those zillions of error messages 
were all due to that one character. For those curious ~x is the MATLAB 
syntax for !x in D so I must have been in a MATLAB frame of mind when I 
wrote that and then never tested it. I'll update the zip file tonight when I 
get home.

Re: MinTL problem
Haha.  That's almost as bad as writing a big chunk of code that refuses
to compile, only to discover hours later that I was writing Python and
not D ("is not" vs. "!is", "0 <= i <= $" vs. "0 <= i && i <= $", etc.)

Thanks for the update :)
