digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 19651] New: Missing compile errors when initializing static

https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19651

          Issue ID: 19651
           Summary: Missing compile errors when initializing static char
                    array with slice of mismatching length
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: kinke gmx.net

When initializing with or assigning to a string slice of mismatching length, a
compile error should be emitted, consistent with all other non-char/wchar/dchar
types. LDC doesn't expect such cruelty in the codegen AST, at least not for
static array initialization, and currently doesn't produce a runtime error, but
happily reads beyond the source string.

void main()
{
    {
        enum src = [1, 2];
        int[64] buf = src[0..64]; // runtime error: range violation
        buf = src[0..3];          // compile error: mismatched array lengths
        buf = src[0..2];          // compile error: mismatched array lengths
        buf = src[0..1];          // compile error: mismatched array lengths
        buf = src[0..0];          // compile error: cannot cast int[0] to
int[64]
    }

    {
        enum src = "ab";
        char[64] buf = src[0..64]; // runtime error: range violation
        buf = src[0..3];           // compile error: mismatched array lengths
        buf = src[0..2];           // runtime error: range violation
        buf = src[0..1];           // runtime error: range violation
        buf = src[0..0];           // runtime error: range violation
    }
}
