Aliases in unrelated projects affect libraries

Reported by: dhasenan Assigned to: asterite
Priority: minor Component: descent.astview
Version: 0.5 Keywords:


I have an alias in one of my projects: alias char[] _mock_str_t;

While working on a different project, I used and looked at the ddoc information for formatln. It claimed to take a _mock_str_t argument for formatting.

This is using 5.3.20090102.

Are you talking about the ddoc information that appears when you hover over a symbol, or when you request autocompletion?

I have a test case that may be this problem or a related:

alias char[] string;
string s;

void  main()
	Object o;

In the above code (| is the cursor, as usual) "string" shows up in the autocompletion list instead of char[] for toString.

This was fixed in a previous commit.
