characters, but replaced.) Maybe this behaviour is intended, and the document should be corrected? 2. The std.uri module internally allocates temporary buffers by alloca() on stack. But this causes a problem when one deals with large strings: import std.uri; void main() { char[] str = new char[10000000]; // about 10MB str[] = 'A'; encodeComponent(str); } This example halts on "Error: Stack Overflow" on my WinXP+dmd 1.42 environment. All allocas in this module should be rewritten to heap allocation, i think. Or at least, this limitation should be noted in the document.

I think the doc is wrong here. I'll fix it.
