https://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=12418 Summary: Add module for C-strings support Product: D Version: D2 Platform: All OS/Version: All Status: NEW Severity: enhancement Priority: P2 Component: Phobos AssignedTo: nobody puremagic.com ReportedBy: verylonglogin.reg gmail.com --- Comment #0 from Denis Shelomovskij <verylonglogin.reg gmail.com> 2014-03-20 12:14:00 MSK --- C-strings processing is a special and common case so: 1. C-strings should be supported with both performance and usability. 2. There should be a dedicated module for C-strings (instead of adding such functions here and there in other modules). Current state: there is no good support for C-strings in Phobos, there is slow and broken `toStringz` (Issue 12417), and no standard way to make many common operations, like converting returned C-string to string and releasing its memory or creating a C-string from string using an allocation function. So I propose to add `unstd.c.string`  module to Phobos which include all use-cases I have seen implementing (correct and fast in contrast to existing ones like GtkD (yes, it's both incorrect and slow because of tons of GC allocations)) C library wrappers.  http://denis-sh.bitbucket.org/unstandard/unstd.c.string.html -- Configure issuemail: https://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------
