Original bug ID: 6384
Reporter: @lpw25
Assigned to: @garrigue
Status: closed (set by @xavierleroy on 2015-12-11T18:26:43Z)
Resolution: fixed
Priority: normal
Severity: minor
Version: 4.01.0
Fixed in version: 4.02.0+dev
Category: typing

Bug description

By hiding a .cmi file you can get an uncaught Not_found exception:

$ cat a.mli
type t = Foo | Bar

$ cat b.mli
type t = A.t

$ cat c.mli
type t = A.t = Foo | Bar

$ cat
let f (x : B.t) =
  match x with
    C.Foo -> true
  | _ -> false

$ ocamlc a.mli b.mli c.mli

$ rm a.cmi

$ ocamlc
Fatal error: exception Not_found

The attached patch fixes this bug. The important change is that "complete_constrs" in uses the type from the constructor instead of from the pattern.

It also cleans up some other code in to remove some unnecessary checks that a type has a variant/record definition (since that should makes bugs like this less likely).

Applied the patch to trunk at revision 14702.

Indeed, there was a lot of garbage now that constructors contain their names.
Thanks for cleaning up that.
