https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13893 Issue ID: 13893 Summary: "rawRead must take a non-empty buffer" Product: D Version: D2 Hardware: All OS: All Status: NEW Severity: enhancement Priority: P1 Component: Phobos Assignee: nobody puremagic.com Reporter: thecybershadow gmail.com If an empty buffer is passed to rawRead, it throws. This is a somewhat arbitrary limitation, and, in the generic case that the buffer a program may want to read would happen to have a length of 0, a needless corner case the programmer must be aware of. (I've had a long-running program crash half-way through because of this.) Empty buffers are OK with the following: - File.rawWrite - fread - Socket.send - Socket.receive (although maybe this one shouldn't be, as its return value is then ambiguous). --
