digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 14059] New: Formatted write with wrong formatting string


          Issue ID: 14059
           Summary: Formatted write with wrong formatting string
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: diagnostic
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P1
         Component: Phobos
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: bearophile_hugs eml.cc

void main() {
    import std.stdio;
    auto a = ["red", "blue"];
    writefln("%-(%s%", a);

If compiled normally gives (dmd 2.067alpha):

core.exception.RangeError std\format.d(878): Range violation

Compiling with -release -boundscheck=off gives:

object.Exception ...\dmd2\src\phobos\std\format.d(871): Incorrect format
specifier: %(%s%

I think it should give the second error message in both cases.
