Possible bug/inaccurate deprecation message


#1

Not sure if this is a bug, planned to be fixed, an unavoidable consequence of the stdlib split, or something else, but I noticed this issue:

module ParentMod
using DelimitedFiles

readdlm(joinpath(@__DIR__, "data.txt"), ",", Float64)

end

gives an incorrect deprecation warning on Julia master

ERROR: LoadError: WARNING: Base.readdlm is deprecated: it has been moved to the standard library package `DelimitedFiles`.
Add `using DelimitedFiles` to your imports.
 in module Base
MethodError: no method matching readdlm(::String, ::String, ::Type{Float64})

You need to use a Char as delimiter (',') instead of a String (","):

Yes, of course. But the deprecation warning is spurious
