This was requested recently in IRC.

A getPair() function would return a key+val combination from an existing key
(ideally as a struct), e.g.:

void main()
{
    string buffer = "abc def";
    string abc = buffer[0 .. 3];
    bool[string] hash;
    hash[abc] = true;

    auto pair = hash.getPair("abc");  // enhancement
    assert(pair.key is abc);  // L9
    assert(pair.val == true);

    // not the same as:
    alias Tuple!(string, "key", bool, "val") Tup;
    Tup tup;
    tup.key = "abc";
    tup.val = hash["abc"];
    assert(tup.key is abc);  // this would fail
    assert(tup.val == true);
}

Note the importance of line 9, it is an 'is' check, not an equality check.

That's iteration, this is lookup. But you could say the two are related. -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------
