D - On the type names (I know is too late)

Hi,


Some times ago, I saw a post on type names: why not use instead of int, real,
long int, unsigned int etc. the length afterward (i. e. int32, int64, signed32,
unsigned32 etc.). Even if the distinction between floating and fixed is not made
this way, when someone chooses a variable type usually thinks about his range,
which becomes explicite this way.

Just an opinion.

If you really want to do this, you can make an import like this: module mytypenames; alias int int32; alias uint unsigned32; etc.
