             Bug #: 14444
           Summary: Poor suggestion from typo correction
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Frontend
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: richard-llvm at metafoo.co.uk
                CC: llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu
    Classification: Unclassified

src/tools/clang/lib/Sema/SemaDeclCXX.cpp:532:36: error: no member named
'getParam' in 'clang::FunctionDecl'; did you mean 'setParams'?
      ParmVarDecl *NewParam = New->getParam(New->getMinRequiredArguments());

No. I meant getParamDecl. There are a couple of clues to suggest which one I
was looking for:

 1) The correct correction involves only one change (adding 'Decl'). The
incorrect one involves two changes ('g' -> 's', and adding a trailing 's').

 2) We have one correction which adds a missing suffix and another which
'fixes' a typo. The former is more likely to be intended, because it's probably
not a typo if there is another method which starts with that string.
