//----
import std.string;
void main()
{
    auto  a  = iota(0, 10);
    auto  p  = &a;
    writefln("%s", a);
    writefln("%s", p);
}
//----
[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]
[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]
//----

This is not documented behavior. The documented behavior is simply:
"Pointers are formatted as hex integers."

The current behavior (pointer to ranges prints the range) makes no sense to me,
and I don't see why a pointer to such a type would get a special treatment.

I think this behavior is wrong, and should be removed to simply treat the
pointer as a pointer.

 This is not documented behavior. The documented behavior is simply:
 "Pointers are formatted as hex integers."
The fun is that a pointer to a range is a range. It naturally supports all of primitives.

 pointer as a pointer.
Maybe. -- Configure issuemail: https://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------

Also (but off topic here), while the slicing operator is still supported, the slice-able *trait* becomes lost, as the returned type (R) won't match the used type (R*). -- Configure issuemail: https://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------
