prefix map ambiguous

when I write sequence.prefix(n).map(f) the compiler complains that .prefix
is ambiguous. If I replace it with [..<n] it works fine. Why is this
happening? I found SR-1856 <https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-1856> which
looks like a similar issue but it’s marked fixed.

Hi Kelvin,

Can you give a bit more detail on the type of the sequence, and which compiler version you’re seeing this on?

I can’t reproduce this with a recent Xcode or a recent master toolchain with this code:

let sequence = 0..<10
let n = 5
let f = { $0*2 }

sequence.prefix(n).map(f)

Thanks
Ben

it happens when the n is a literal

let a:[Int] = [1, 2, 3]
let f:(Int) -> Int = { $0 + 5 }

print(a.prefix(5).map(f))

ab.swift:4:7: error: ambiguous use of 'prefix'
print(a.prefix(5).map(f))

This seems to be https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-1856, which is resolved in Swift 4.1.
