digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 13396] New: Non-instance and final methods on extern(C++)


          Issue ID: 13396
           Summary: Non-instance and final methods on extern(C++)
                    interfaces shouldn't be mangled as C++ names
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: regression
          Priority: P1
         Component: DMD
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: blah38621 gmail.com

A while back, some changes were made to the C++ mangling, those changes broke 
the build on an old project of mine which declared the following:

extern(C++) public interface ScriptObject // Total size: 0x3C
    final static T Find(T)(string name) { return T.init; }

and, in another file, it does:


This instantiates the template, and the current DMD tries to mangle Find as a 
C++ function, which obviously fails, because string isn't something you can 
mangle for C++. 

I believe that methods with implementations in extern(C++) interfaces should 
still be using the D calling convention and mangling scheme.
