@varkor @eddyb

I am currently looking at
The actually problem is more general than the issue.

The compiler currently seems to always panics if a const generic is used in a type and the const generics feature is not enabled.

struct S<const V: usize>;

fn test<const A: usize>(v: S<{A + 1}>) {

struct B<const A: usize>([u8; A + 1]);
fn test<const A: usize>() {
    let _: [u8; A + 1];

etc all panic during const eval.

Considering that this problem will be removed once const generics are stable and the first error message can be fixed quite easily,
would it be acceptable to stop compilation before this(i.e. before generating mir) in case const generics are used without the feature?

eddyb (Mar 18 2020 at 20:28, on Zulip):

oh dear

eddyb (Mar 18 2020 at 20:28, on Zulip):

this is because I hackily made const_generics also enable the correct behavior for generics_of

eddyb (Mar 18 2020 at 20:31, on Zulip):

the behavior we can't do by default before lazy normalization

eddyb (Mar 18 2020 at 20:32, on Zulip):

@Bastian Kauschke we could stop compilation yeah but I'm not sure what the best way to do it is

Bastian Kauschke (Mar 18 2020 at 20:33, on Zulip):

abort(1) :laughing:

eddyb (Mar 18 2020 at 20:33, on Zulip):

I mean to detect it

eddyb (Mar 18 2020 at 20:33, on Zulip):

short of making the feature-gating error fatal

Bastian Kauschke (Mar 18 2020 at 20:41, on Zulip):

We might add a new StashKey and use stash_diagnostic. If you think this is an acceptable way to solve this issue, I would gladly try and implement this.

varkor (Mar 18 2020 at 21:14, on Zulip):

short of making the feature-gating error fatal
maybe this isn't completely unreasonable… better than an ICE

varkor (Mar 18 2020 at 21:15, on Zulip):

the behavior we can't do by default before lazy normalization

soon :fingers_crossed:

Bastian Kauschke (Mar 19 2020 at 09:58, on Zulip):

Looking at generics_of, what prevents us from doing the same for AnonConst when const generics are not enabled?

Bastian Kauschke (Mar 19 2020 at 11:52, on Zulip):

/what goes wrong if the hack is used without the feature flag

Bastian Kauschke (Mar 19 2020 at 12:12, on Zulip):

tried it out :cry: I see the problem now

eddyb (Mar 19 2020 at 14:25, on Zulip):

yeah cycle errors

eddyb (Mar 19 2020 at 14:25, on Zulip):

lazy normalization fixes the cycle errors

eddyb (Mar 19 2020 at 14:25, on Zulip):

it's like a 3 year old issue at this point

varkor (Mar 19 2020 at 14:36, on Zulip):

maybe we can just get away with waiting — lazy normalisation should merge soon (though I'm not sure how long we'll need to wait to stabilise it)

Charles Lew (Mar 19 2020 at 16:02, on Zulip):

Speaking of lazy normalization, currently the oldest open tracking issue is about inherent associated types, which is not yet implemented. Is it also blocked on lazy normalization? How much work will it need to get it implemented (on nightly)?

centril (Mar 19 2020 at 16:03, on Zulip):


varkor (Mar 19 2020 at 20:31, on Zulip):

@Charles Lew: as I understand it, though @nikomatsakis would be the person to ask, there are two aspects of lazy normalisation — that for consts, and that for traits

varkor (Mar 19 2020 at 20:31, on Zulip):

currently, @Ben Lewis is working on const lazy normalisation, which unblocks quite a lot of the const generics work

varkor (Mar 19 2020 at 20:32, on Zulip):

but this won't unblock the traits features
