Topic: Intrinsic methods with trait constraints

Sebastian Zimmer (Nov 02 2019 at 22:22, on Zulip):

I have never worked on rust analyser before, but I ran into this issue on a personal project so I figured I'd try to fix it myself. It seems to be pretty easy to fix the precise sample in that issue, but it looks harder to fix the problem I was having myself.

           trait Foo {
                fn foo(&self);
            trait Bar {
                fn bar(&self);
            struct X();
            impl Foo for X {
                fn foo(&self) {}

            struct Wrapper<T>(T);
            impl<T: Foo> Wrapper<T> {
                fn wrapper_foo(&self) { }
            impl<T: Bar> Wrapper<T> {
                fn wrapper_bar(&self) { }
            fn main() {
                let wrapper = Wrapper(X());
                let x = wrapper.<|>

(The completions should contain wrapper_foo but not wrapper_bar). The way that inherent methods work atm seems weird to me, wouldn't it make more sense if each inherent impl block created a trait? That way chalk could do the work of determining which inherent impl blocks apply at a given call site.

That might work to basically avoid having to do the unification and checking the where clauses ourselves, but note that inherent methods behave somewhat differently from traits, e.g. they don't need to be in scope and are chosen with priority over traits, so they need special handling anyway; and doing the unification properly isn't that hard either, so I don't feel like it would be worth it

also note that I'm currently working on refactoring method resolution as well to get the priority order really correct

I've got a mostly working implementation of this now, but it breaks the test obligation_from_impl_clause. I don't understand how this test is supposed to work though, I get error E0207 when I try to compile it with rustc.

here's a slightly more complicated version that compiles in rustc:
