Description Alexander Köplinger 2015-02-09 22:05:24 UTC
The following code generates a CS0254 on mcs, but works fine on csc and roslyn:

> using System;
> using System.Collections.Generic;

> public class Program
> {
>         public unsafe static void Main()
>         {
>                 var list = new List<object>();
>                 fixed (char *c = (string)list[0]) { }
>         }
> }


> $ mcs /unsafe test.cs 
> test.cs(9,20): error CS0254: The right hand side of a fixed statement assignment may not be a cast expression
> Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings

Fixed in master
Comment 2 Alexander Köplinger 2015-02-10 17:12:18 UTC
I'm now seeing a compiler crash in the code this test case originally came from.

New test case:

> using System;
> 
> public class Program
> {
>         public unsafe static int Main()
>         {
>                 var list = new object[] { "" };
> 
>                 if (list[0] is string)
>                 {
>                         fixed (char* p = (string)list[0])
>                                 return 0;
>                 }
>                 else
>                 {
>                         fixed (byte* p = (byte[])list[0])
>                                 return 1;
>                 }
>         }
> }
