Recent forum discussions[1] and a lot of anecdotal accounts by many people have
made it clear that learning how to work with strings in D can be hard because
of the sheer number of modules involved.

You must be familiar with std.string, std.array, std.algorithm, std.range,
std.format, and std.uni at the very least to get a handle on where to find many
string related functions.  The Strings Overview page would serve as an
introduction to how strings in D work and, most importantly, a one page 
reference of all of the functions you would be interested in while working with
strings in D (which can be easily searched).
