ParameterIdentifierTuple from std.traits did work fine for regular functions but not for template functions:

> Error: template instance `std.traits.ParameterIdentifierTuple!(f)` does not match template declaration `ParameterIdentifierTuple(func...) if (func.length == 1 && isCallable!func)` (foo)

f is defined as:

> void f(T)(T t, string p)
> if(is(T == A) || is(T == B))
>{
>	// ...
>}

my goal is get "p" as string.

If I'm understanding right I need this quite frequently so I wrote this:

template nameOf(alias nameType)
{
	enum string nameOf = __traits(identifier, nameType);
}

unittest
{
	immutable int name;
	assert(nameOf!name == "name");
}

`f` is a template that generates functions. Before you instantiate that template, the function doesn't exist, so there's no function to get parameters from.

You can get the parameter names of any instantiation of that template, such as:

    assert(ParameterIdentifierTuple!(f!A)[1] == "p");
