Is there any way to enable this in the language?
auto a = [1,2,3] + [4,5,6]; //[5,7,9]
I want to allow the operation.
If I made a dmd fork, could I change this behavior "easily" or would it require a blood sacrifice
You could enable this easily using a wrapping struct template. Have a look at this: https://run.dlang.io/is/6CNgpy
In short, the solution is very elegant, very general, and only requires you to make two keystrokes
.v before the operation. Alternatively, you can use
v(1, 2, 3) instead of a slice literal.
Interesting! Even more cool if not the .v was required tho 😁
The operation necessitates an allocation and people here don't like hidden allocations.
