I'm so sorry, I know that the above example doesn't work:


main(){
  Struct PersonDTO {
    string name;
    string surname;
  }

  void create(PersonDTO personData){
   // ...
  }
  create( {name: "Peter", surname: "Ustinov"} );

}

-Is it there any alternative to initialize "inline" de struct (using the name:value syntax for the properties) without declaring an intermediate variable?

Thanks
Antonio

I see now: DIP 1033 will solve this (i.e., using named arguments in struct constructor... similar to how dart/flutter works)

That would be DIP 1030:

Max Haughton was working on an implementation of it, but ran into trouble with template parameters, IIRC.
