fn main() {
    let x = "hello";
    let ref y = x;
    // let y = match x { ref y => y };  // this way works fine
    error!("%?", *y);


rustc: /home/bblum/rust/src/llvm/lib/VMCore/Instructions.cpp:280:
void llvm::CallInst::init(llvm::Value*, llvm::ArrayRef<llvm::Value*>,
const llvm::Twine&): Assertion `(i >= FTy->getNumParams() ||
FTy->getParamType(i) == Args[i]->getType()) && "Calling a function
with a bad signature!"' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

Happens with structs, tuples, etc too.

Niko Matsakis

for some reason that is fairly unclear to me, trans/alt has a completely distinct code path for irrefutable patterns. that path should be deleted and they should all use the normal alt path, imo. anyway, that particular path is hard-coded to copy and doesn't know about ref bindings.

Niko Matsakis

I changed the title to my preferred solution.

Ugh, this has been a pain in the you-know-what. Not going to be ready for 0.5

Also causes this strange behaviour:

fn main() -> () {
    let a = ~(1, 2);

fn test<T,U>(a : &(T, U)) {
    let (ref _x, ref _y) = *a;

Returns error: moving out of dereference of immutable & pointer


fn main() -> () {
    let a = ~(1, 2);

fn test<T,U>(a : &(T, U)) {
    let (_a, _b) = match *a {
        (ref a, ref b) => (a, b)

Is fine.

Nominating for the well-defined milestone.

This makes working with non-copyable tuples laborious, and actually has serious performance implications for destructuring assignment (at least I think that's related to this bug, copies are generated when they shouldn't be). Failing the well-defined milestone, I think this would fit well into the feature-complete milestone.

Tim Chevalier

I don't feel like this fits under anything except production-ready, but I agree with nominating it.

Niko Matsakis

For what it's worth, I don't think that this is necessarily the right fix anymore. But the bug is real.

Niko Matsakis

Update the title to reflect the general bug.

Very close to fixing this. I've got a branch that's been slowly progress towards stability.

accepted for backwards-compatible milestone
