Jean-Louis Leroy posted about his open methods library here in the forums some time ago. Now, he's written a blog post that explains what open methods are, and describes the D implementation and how it compares to his C++ library.

The blog:


Neat. Good to see articles in support of TypeInfo/ClassInfo!
I do wish we extended it for full reflection capabilities though...


Andrei suggested using rtlInfo but AFAICT this requires building a custom druntime. It would be easy to support this method in addition to 'deallocator' and 'hash' but I suspect it would not be a very popular option.

Maybe we could have a void*[] in TypeInfo and a global integer index that extensions could use to allocate entries?
