digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 13635] New: implicit class constructor should instantiate


          Issue ID: 13635
           Summary: implicit class constructor should instantiate
                    templated base class constructor
           Product: D
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: DMD
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: code dawg.eu

cat > bug.d << CODE
class Base
    this(this Derived)() {}

class Foo : Base
    // this() { super(); } // explicit constructor needed

dmd -c bug

bug.d(6): Error: class bug.Foo Cannot implicitly generate a default ctor when
base class bug.Base is missing a default ctor

The default constructor code should try to call the super class constructor
without arguments instead of detecting a `this()` function.
