V version: V 0.2.4 223b96a.1fc9e1a
OS: linux, "Manjaro Linux"

What did you do?

struct Element {
	name       string
	value      string
	attributes []&Attribute

struct Attribute {
	name  string
	value string

pub type Node = Attribute | Element

struct AbstractNode {
pub mut:
	child_nodes []&Node

pub fn (mut n AbstractNode) append_child(child &Node) {
	n.child_nodes << child

pub fn (n &AbstractNode) has_child(child &Node) int {
	return n.child_nodes.index(child)

fn main() {
	mut parent := &Element{
		name: 'parent'
	mut child := &Element{
		name: 'child'


What did you expect to see?
Expected code to compile and the has_child function to return an integer.

What did you see instead?
The code doesn't compile because the generated C code is invalid.
