digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 12927] New: Can't get at compile-time the immutable field of


          Issue ID: 12927
           Summary: Can't get at compile-time the immutable field of a
                    struct instance in a TypeTuple
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: rejects-valid
          Severity: regression
          Priority: P1
         Component: DMD

I am not fully sure this code is valid, but this used to work until recently:

alias TypeTuple(T...) = T;
struct Foo {
    int a;
    immutable int b;
struct Bar {
    auto foos = TypeTuple!(Foo(10, 20), Foo(10, 20));
    void bar() {
        enum i = 1;
        enum r = foos[i].b;

void main() {}

With dmd 2.066alpha it gives:

temp.d(10,18): Error: value of 'this' is not known at compile time

I use this idiom to have struct instances with some mutable fields and with
some "enum" fields.
