D - documentation bug?: i++

hello,

in various documentation texts there is "for (int i = 0; i < _something_;
i++)".
why i++? I think it should be ++i, no metter how good optimizer we have.

regards,
Georg

++i and i++ both have valid and different semantic meanings. Both are allowed in D. I don't see what difference it makes which one you use in a loop. Evan

Since for that use, the same code will be generated for either, which you use is purely a matter of personal taste.
