Summary: ICE(cod4.c) or segfault: Array operation on void[]
           Product: D
           Version: 1.045
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: diagnostic, ice-on-invalid-code, patch
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD

Array operations involving void[] can either ICE in the backend, segfault in
the front-end, or generate error messages without line numbers, which refer to
compiler-generated code. All have the same root cause: such operations are

PATCH(tested on DMD1.045+D2.030): Add this code to the start of
BinExp::arrayOp(Scope *) in arrayop.c.
    if (type == Type::terror) { return this; }
    if (type->toBasetype()->nextOf()->toBasetype()->ty==Tvoid) {
        error("Cannot perform array operations on void[] arrays");
        return this;

// TEST CASE 1: error message with no line number, referring to 
// compiler-generated code. The error is so unhelpful, it might
// as well be an ICE.
// Error: 'p0[p]' is not of arithmetic type, it is a const(void)
// Error: expression -(p0[p]) is void and has no value

void bar(){
  void [] x;
  x[] = -x[];

// TEST CASE 2: ICE(backend/cod4.c 353). On D1, it is another 
// error message with no line number
void foo(T)() {
   T[] a;
   a[] = -a[];
void main(){

// Test case 3: segfault D1 + D2
typedef void car;
void baz(){
  int [] x;
  car [] y;
  y[] = -x[];
