Is there a particular reason why the first definition doesn’t work?
julia> @generated foo(x::T) where T = x ERROR: invalid syntax; @generated must be used with a function definition julia> @generated foo(x::T where T) = x foo (generic function with 1 method)
Is this a bug or a feature? I’m running Julia 0.7.0-DEV.363 (Commit 6071f1a02e).
@inline decorator instead works (I know that this defines a different function, I’m just showing the different behavior):
julia> @inline foo(x::T) where T = x foo (generic function with 1 method)

Edit 2: fixed, together with a bunch of other bugs, with https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/pull/22166
