digitalmars.D - Small readln problem

Im having some starting trouble, using the code from the srd.stdio spec :
/*BEGIN CODE*/
import std.stdio;

int main()
{
    char[] buf;
    while ((buf = readln(stdin)) != null)
	writef("%s", buf);
    return 0;
}
/*END CODE*/

Im getting the following errors

dmd test


test.d(6): Error: function expected before (), not readln of type int test.d(6): Error: cannot implicitly convert expression (readln((& _iob))) of type int to char[] Im running a Windows 64bit machine if that helps.

readln() was introduced in dmd 1.010, make sure you're not using an older version.
