import std.stdio;
import std.range;

void main() {
    foreach (c, take(repeat('-'), 4))
        write(c);
}

I just spent a good minute trying to decypher the error message:

test.d(6): basic type expected, not 45U
test.d(6): found '45U' when expecting ')'
test.d(6): basic type expected, not 4
test.d(6): no identifier for declarator int
test.d(6): found '4' when expecting ';'
test.d(6): expression expected, not ')'

I'd expect something like "if there's no ; then it's no good".
BTW, what's that 45U?
