digitalmars.D - std.string.toString() with radix function

reply Phoenix <phoenix flareware.cz> writes:
socket.d(111): function std.string.toString called with argument types:
         (ulong,int)
matches both:
         std.string.toString(long,uint)
and:
         std.string.toString(ulong,uint)


code:

int i = 15;
char [] ui;
ui = std.string.toString(cast(ulong)i,16);

what`s up with it?

The parameter 16 is signed int by default. D has far simpler overloading rules than C++, and these produce the collision here. Use that instead: ui = std.string.toString(cast(ulong)i, 16u); Ciao uwe
