Function dmd.escape.checkAssignEscape

Given an AssignExp, determine if the lvalue will cause the contents of the rvalue to escape. Print error messages when these are detected. Infer scope attribute for the lvalue where possible, in order to eliminate the error.

bool checkAssignEscape (
  dmd.dscope.Scope* sc,
  Expression e,
  bool gag,
  bool byRef


sc used to determine current function and module
e AssignExp or CatAssignExp to check for any pointers to the stack
gag do not print error messages
byRef set to true if e1 of e gets assigned a reference to e2


true if pointers to the stack can escape via assignment
