I do not understand how std.string.removechars could pass the unittest. It does
not work for me and its implementation looks buggy, imho.

    foreach (size_t i, dchar c; s)
    {
        if (inPattern(c, pattern)) continue; <-- here we must check change flag

        if (!changed)
        {   changed = true;
            r = s[0 .. i].dup; <----- Why 0? what if we skipped 1st char?

The problem could be fixed by replacing [0..i] with [i..i], but then the
original idea to optimize some cases does not work at all. Speculating what the
author had in mind writing this code, I would rewrite it this way (passes the
unittest btw):

    foreach (size_t i, dchar c; s)
    {
        if (inPattern(c, pattern)) {
                if (!changed)
                {   changed = true;
                    r = s[0 .. i].dup;
                }
                continue;
        }
        if (changed)
        {
            std.utf.encode(r, c);
        }

Just in case, the correct version of the function might look like:

string removechars(string s, in string pattern)
{
    char[] r;
    bool changed = false;

    foreach (size_t i, dchar c; s)
    {
        if (inPattern(c, pattern)){
                if (!changed)
                {   changed = true;
                    r = s[0 .. i].dup;
                }
                continue;
        }
        if (changed)
        {
            std.utf.encode(r, c);
        }
    }
    return (changed? r.idup : s);
}

I think the best way to prove the problems with the current version and the
fixes made by the proposed versions is by writing a few unittests.

test3.exe
core.exception.AssertError (22): Assertion failure 16 string r; 17 18 r = MYremovechars("hah", "h"); 19 assert(r == "a"); 20 21 r = removechars("hah", "h"); 22 assert(r == "a"); I hope it proves my point. The problem with existing unittest for removechars is that in ALL cases characters to be removed go back-to-back (this is why removechars passes existing unittest). -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------

Fixed in svn r1555. Thanks for the correct code!
