It could be that I am running out of stack space. I am on OS X, 
and non-main threads are given a very limited stack size, they 
say [1, 2]. This foreach of mine calls into itself, and for my 
test case it nests upto 52 levels deep, which may be too much. 
Core.thread allows threads to be created with specified stack 
size, but that seems to be abstracted away in std.parallelism.

Yes, but the template is one of my constraints (no pun). It needs 
to happen in there.


This compiles when I apply this to the Pegged source, but 
something else is wrong. I get a bus error some time out in 
execution. Maybe when tasks are garbage collected? Or because of 
missing synchronisation on the array that the tasks write into? 
This is a complicated situation, because the evaluation of these 
functions may themselves cause a parallel foreach on a different 
set of functions (or the same set, for recursive rules). I might 
not be able to solve this, sadly -- a parser that does parallel 
matching would have been so cool.


Anyway I am glad to have seen powers of meta programming that I 
didn't know were possible.

Yes, it's short for this:

template fptr(alias f) { enum fptr =  }

"addrOf" is probably a better name for this. It's not restricted to 
functions.



Can the following be made to work?

int one(int) {return 1;}

[...]

int one(string) {return 0;} // How to ignore this?

int[8] values;

template eval_all(funcs...)
{
void eval_all(int val)
{

[...]

//enum fptr(alias f) =   // Error: cannot infer type
from
// overloaded function
symbol & one
enum fptr(alias int f(int)) =// ditto.


Aside: That funky, C-like syntax surprised me. I guess that's a function 
type as opposed to a function pointer type, which would be `alias int 
function(int) f`. That distinction always trips me up.



enum fptrs = staticMap!(fptr, funcs);
auto r = only(fptrs);

foreach (i, f; parallel(r))
values[i] = f(val);
}
}


You can generate wrapper functions that have no overloads:


static int wrap(alias f)(int arg) { return f(arg); }
enum addrOf(alias f) = 
enum fptrs = staticMap!(addrOf, staticMap!(wrap, funcs));
/* ... r and foreach as before ... */


This also unifies the signatures in other ways. For example, you can 
have a function that takes a `long` instead of an int.


Of course, if you passed the functions at run time, and not in a 
template parameter, the code would be much shorter:



void eval_all(int val, int function(int)[] funcs ...)
{
import std.parallelism;

foreach (i, f; parallel(funcs))
values[i] = f(val);
}
void main()
{
eval_all(42, , , , , , , ,
);
foreach(i, val; values)
assert(val == i + 1);
}


One little disadvantage of this is that the signatures have to match 
exactly. Overloads are fine, but you can't have a function with a `long` 
parameter. But that's really minor, and can be handled at the call site.


I think I'd prefer this over the template version. You have to make a 
run-time list of the functions anyway, for `parallel`, so the template 
stuff just seems to add complexity.

Although this answers my question perfectly, it turns out that I
