The first code sample is private immutable ubyte[128] uri_flags = // indexed by character ({ // ... })(); and the text says "The ({ starts a function-literal, the }) closes it.". Why the extra parentheses? Just the curly brackets works, no? private immutable ubyte[128] uri_flags = // indexed by character { // ... }(); Ali

Yes it would work. But I like to distinguish function-literals from blocks :)
