digitalmars.D - no output in unittest

i have been playing around with unittest, and i am quite happy that it is there.
but why is it impossible to display something from there? when i call writef
nothing happens.

sure, asserts are a good thing, but sometimes, reading some text output is just
the most simple way to check if everything is write. Usualy, the tests i perform
contain as much printfs as asserts. maybe more. If some people prefer to use
only assert, why not. but i am not sure why the language should prevent me to
output text in the unittext.

I've used printf in unittests just fine, so there might be a problem with
writef.

Or you've placed your unittest in the 'wrong' place, is it running at all, 
try assert(0);

As posted by Duncan earlier sometimes depending on where you place your 
unittest it does not run.

IIRC assert(0) does fail, and i still get no output. I ll try to play around a
bit more with this, to be sure of what's happening, and I ll tell you all what
happens then.
