Because update is delayed for the accompanying sample of dmd, it shows very
old-fashioned codes.
Today, I saw the example that held a bad impression for the whole D language to
see this sample codes. It is to be very regretted that D language itself was
judged from such a trivial things.
To avoid this, it is necessary to discard samples or to make better codes.
I hope the sample codes appropriate to say "That's the code of the D
Programming Language!"

Specifically, I think that improvement is necessary in the following points:

* Don't depend on the module of the C language as much as possible.
* Signature of the main function; `void main(string[] args)`
* To use foreach for loops.
* Don't use deprecated modules.
* Use inferences / Use enum for constant numbers / Use scope guard statements /
etc.
