digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 15158] New: Better error message: "Property is not an lvalue,


          Issue ID: 15158
           Summary: Better error message: "Property is not an lvalue, use
                    'ref' to make it so"
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86
                OS: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: eli sternheim.com

The error message: "function tmp.s.l () is not callable using argument types
(int)" is not very informative. Instead the message should be "Property l is
not an lvalue. Use 'ref' to make it so"
Test case:

struct s {
  long a;
  // property ref long l() {return a;}
   property long l() {return a;}

void main () {
  auto s1=new s;
  s1.l = 0;
