(Off topic: std.strings toStringz uses the GC to store the c string. Now if I passed the returned pointer to a C function, but didn't store a reference in the D program, couldn't that c string get collected while the c library would expect it to be still there?) -- Johannes Pfau
I had my own question about toStringz, yours was one of them, the function returns a const(char)*, but C doesn't have such a notion so how is this enforced?
