D - Array slicing: another exclusive-end proposal
- "Christophe Bouchon" <cbouchon hotmail.com> Mar 03 2002
This is a restart of the lengthy thread in "Re: so what about switch()" about inclusive vs exclusive slice ending. OddesE proposed the [ 2 .. 4 ) end-exclusive syntax and [ 2 .. 4 ] end-inclusive syntax but it can be confused with a missing closing ] if the expression appears inside () or if the the slice boundaries are parenthesized expressions (particularly the second one). Why not [ 2 .. 4 -] for an end-exclusive slice, -] being a single token ? Or perhaps <] instead of -].
