digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 15437] New: documentation for typeof(someTemplate) == void


          Issue ID: 15437
           Summary: documentation for typeof(someTemplate) == void
           Product: D

It is not immediately obvious in what situation `fun` would have (typeof(fun)
== void) unless you know that templates received through an alias have typeof
void, but there doesn't seem to be any place in the documentation mentioning
that fact.

Even if this is mentioned in the docs somewhere, it might still be worth
