Can declare two methods with the same name and different arguments #3099

fn a(x: ~str) -> ~str {
    #fmt("First function with %s", x)

fn a(x: ~str, y: ~str) -> ~str {
    #fmt("Second function with %s and %s", x, y)

fn main() {
    #info("Result: ");

Compiles with a recent rust master (899400c) (but using a(x: ~str) does not compile)

You can also declare different types with the same name. This compiles and runs:

enum x {}

trait x {}

type x = int;

struct x { a: int; }

fn main() {
    let x:x = fail;

I'm working on fixing both of these issues.


Thats great @catamorphism, thanks!
