D - More opSlice Overloads

Walter,

I believe two more operator overloads are required to complement existing
ones. They are:

int opSlice(int x, int y, int[] value); // overloads a[i .. j] = b[]
int opSlice(int[] value);  // overloads a[] = b[]

I am prepared to admit that while the first is a necessity, the second is
just for completeness' sake, however I think that's a good enough reason to
have it.

The precedents for their inclusion are:

     int opIndex(int i, int value);
     int opSlice();  // overloads a[]
     int opSlice(int x, int y); // overloads a[i .. j]

and the slice semantics for arrays.

Thank you,

Rupert

I'll check it out. -Walter
