digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 14112] New: Phobos git master doesn't build with MSVC-built


          Issue ID: 14112
           Summary: Phobos git master doesn't build with MSVC-built
                    compiler (DIP25)
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: rejects-valid
          Severity: regression
          Priority: P1

If you build a 64-bit dmd.exe from git master with Visual Studio, Phobos
doesn't build any more. I get an error inside unicode_tables.d.

Here's a reduced test case:

///////// test.d ////////
struct FullCaseEntry
    dchar[3] seq;

    auto value() return
        return seq[0..1];

Compiler output:

test.d(5): Error: function declaration without return type. (Note that
constructors are always named 'this')
test.d(6): Error: no identifier for declarator value()return

Miraculously, it's fixed if "return" is replaced with " return".

Sounds like an uninitialized variable?
