This is a way to insert an item in a sorted array:


import std.stdio: writeln;
import std.range: assumeSorted;
import std.array: insertInPlace;
void main() {
    int[] arr = [0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90];
    int x = 35;
    arr.insertInPlace(arr.assumeSorted.lowerBound(x).length, x);
    arr.writeln;
}


Haskell has the insert/insertBy functions (for lists):

It's an operation not too much rare, and implementing it correctly like I have
shown is not immediate, there is a little risk of introducing a bug. So is it
worth adding such small function std.array.insertOrdered() to std.array?
