digitalmars.D - Appending Arrays

reply Trevor Parscal <trevorparscal hotmail.com> writes:
I know that the ~ is the greatest things since sliced arrays [ .. ] :)

But when it comes to appending an array with a new element, I am feeling 
like I must be missing something..

Example:

char[] word = "test";
char letter = '1';

// Wont work?
word ~ letter;

// Works fine...
word.length = word.length + 1;
word[word.length - 1] = letter;

Why is this so complex to do? Is there a way I didn't learn from the D 
language docs?

Right, but that's a compiler bug. It'll be fixed in the next update.
