std.typecons.scoped works per se (I'm adding unittests as we
speak) but using my current dmd, this:
// confirm scoped allocation is @nogc
void scopedRNG(T)(T seed) @nogc
auto gen = scoped!UniformRNG(seed);
... fails to compile with the error,
Error: @nogc function
cannot call non-@nogc function
'std.typecons.scoped!(LinearCongruentialEngine!(uint, 16807u, 0u,
... even if the constructor of the RNG in question is marked
@nogc together with all that it calls.
Is this possibly an issue with 'scoped'? Was it only quite
recently patched to support @nogc? I'll update my installed
compiler if so.
