digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 12913] New: Mistake concerning DLists


          Issue ID: 12913
           Summary: Mistake concerning DLists
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P1
         Component: DMD
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: steffen.wolf online.de


I don't know if this is known already - I didn't find a similar bug - but
either there's a mistake in the documentation or in the current compiler
version (DMD 2.065.0 on Windows 7 x64).

The Library documentation for std.container says this concerning DLists:

insert is an alias of insertBack, and therefore "Inserts stuff to the back of
the container."

removeAny "Picks one value from the front of the container, removes it from the
container, and returns it."

In a recent project, I used insert and removeAny in conjunction to get a
queue-like behaviour. Instead, when I tested the code, it behaved like a stack.
Therefore, as far as I can tell, either insert has to be an alias of
insertFront or removeAny takes elements from the back of the DList.
