import smtp

leads to:

Error: unhandled exception: /build/nim-UtAWG3/nim-0.19.0/compiler/suggest.nim(462, 12) `result == nil or result.kind == nkPragma`  [AssertionError]

There are two things:

  • instead of raising a runtime exception when ssl is required, but the program was compiled without -d:ssl, smtp.nim now uses the error pragma to signal a missing -d:ssl at compiletime. This has the consequence that you now must compile with -d:ssl even if you pass useSsl = false to the constructors newSmtp or newAsyncSmtp.
  • the error you are seeing is the current way, how Nim tells you that you compiled without -d:ssl

Before commit 548fc77 Nim would tell you

Error: invalid pragma: error: "SMTP module compiled without SSL support"

That's a compiler bug, the .error statement must not be treated as an .error proc annotation.
