Description qingzhe huang 2021-08-24 14:28:04 UTC
This may be dup case of PR102033, PR102034 and very probably not related with PR102042 of which I just changed the function parameter of "g" to const array instead of const reference of array. So, it can be another test case.

However, clang(https://www.godbolt.org/z/fxzoWK4G8) passes, MSVC++(https://www.godbolt.org/z/c7Pfbr6b9) fails like GCC. In this sense, I believe this case might be different from all above cases because MSVC++ does not fail.


template<unsigned int N, class T>
void f(const T[N]){}

template<unsigned int N, class T>
using fPtr=decltype(f<N,T>)*;

template<unsigned int N, class T>
fPtr<N,T> af[N]={&f<N,T>};

template<unsigned int N, class T>
void g(const decltype(af<N,T>)){}

 fPtr<1,int>[1] >::value, "af is correct"); // #1

 void(const fPtr<1,int>[1])>::value, "fun"); // #2

void g<1,int>(const fPtr<1,int>[1]){}

GCC says:

 error: template-id 'g<1, int>' for 'void g(void (* const*)(const int*))' does not match any template declaration
   21 | void g<1,int>(const fPtr<1,int>[1]){}
      |      ^~~~~~~~
fun-array-value.cpp:12:6: note: candidate is: 'template<unsigned int N, class T> void g(decltype (af<N, T>))'
   12 | void g(const decltype(af<N,T>)){}
      |      ^

This looks like another case where arrays are not decaying correctly; either too soon or too late.
Comment 2 qingzhe huang 2021-08-26 11:09:43 UTC
The root cause of this issue maybe similar to those  PR102033, PR102034, PR102042 etc., however, this is still a distinctive case because of its nature. It is not a "typename" indicating its a dependent-type, rather using "decltype". 

So, in this sense, to tackle this issue may need a different approach. Currently I haven't found a similar function to resolve "decltype" type similar to "resolve_typename_type". If anybody knows one, please let me know.

    c++: array cv-quals and template specialization [PR101402]
    PRs 101402, 102033, etc. demonstrated that the fix for PR92010 wasn't
    handling all cases of the CWG1001/1322 issue with parameter type qual
    stripping and arrays with templates.  The problem turned out to be in
    determine_specialization, which did an extra substitution without the 92010
    fix and then complained that the result didn't match.
    But just removing that wrong/redundant code meant that we were accepting
    specializations with different numbers of parameters, because the code in
    fn_type_unification that compares types in this case wasn't checking for
    length mismatch.
    After fixing that, I realized that fn_type_unification couldn't tell the
    difference between variadic and non-variadic function types, because the
    args array doesn't include the terminal void we use to indicate non-variadic
    function type.  So I added it, and made the necessary adjustments.
    Thanks to qingzhe "nick" huang <nickhuang99@hotmail.com> for the patch that
    led me to dig more into this, and the extensive testcases.
