           Summary: Please add "import std.stdio;" to object.d and remove
                    extern(C) printf;
           Product: D
           Version: 0.166
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Phobos
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: aarti interia.pl


printf completely does not fit as a D standard console output command. It only
polutes global namespaces. IMHO it's presents is a big trap for novice users -
it's easy to pass to function not null terminated char[].

In contradict writefln and writef is much nicer to use and should be default.

Somewhere in the same thread is a follow-on from this patch to fix bug 64 as
well.

For a moment I'd forgotten that this had already been filed here!

Should object.d import the whole of stdio, or only writef and writefln?  I was
about to propose using

public import std.stdio : writef, writefln;

There may be people who still want to use printf regardless, but they can
import it.  Just put it back in std.c.stdio where it belongs.  There's no
reason that D should make the printf antique more readily accessible than all
other library features.

See also issue 689.

printf() is fixed in D2, and will never be fixed in D1. Time to close.
