digitalmars.D.learn - How to use "read_bool"?

Hi, i am just a newbie trying learn D. But, i get having some 
trouble with "read_bool". More specifically on program of this 
lesson:

import std.stdio;
import std.conv;
import std.string;

void main()
{
     write("How many are we? ");
     int personCount;
     readf(" %s", &personCount);

     write("How many bicycles are there? ");
     int bicycleCount;
     readf(" %s", &bicycleCount);

     write("What is the distance to the beach? ");
     int distance;
     readf(" %s", &distance);

     bool existsCar = read_bool("Is there a car? ");
     bool existsLicense =
         read_bool("Is there a driver license? ");

When i try compile this, i get the following errors:

hello.d|43|Error: undefined identifier read_bool|
hello.d|44|Error: undefined identifier read_bool|
||=== Build finished: 2 errors, 0 warnings (0 minutes, 0 seconds) 
===|

So, someone know what's happening? What is the correct way to use 
the Read_bool?

Thanks for everyone!

presumably read_bool is part of the tutorial. Otherwise you may use this: bool read_bool(){ auto str = readln()[0..$-1]; switch(str){ case "true", "y", "ye", "yes": return true; case "false", "n", "no": return false; default: throw new Exception("please answer yes or no"); } }

As Timon said, read_bool() is a separate function on the same page, a little after main(): bool read_bool(string message) { // Print the message writef(message ~ "(false or true) "); // Read the line as a string string input; while (input.length == 0) { input = chomp(readln()); } // Produce a 'bool' value from that string bool result = to!bool(input); // Return the result to the caller return result; } Unlike Timon's function, you must enter either "false" or "true" with the one above.

Thank you! I am making it better little by little every day.
 Do you mind me asking why you give away the translation for free btw?

I think all of the following: This is my project for fun. I don't think the gains would make any difference anyway. It is not complete yet.
 Your selling the Turkish version, right?

No, the Turkish version is free as well. :) Some people complain that there is no way of showing material appreciation. There are some thoughts and efforts by others to make it a paper book. Ali -- D Programming Language Tutorial: http://ddili.org/ders/d.en/index.html

 the one above.

What tutorials is this? Here's another version: import std.stdio, std.string, std.conv; bool read_bool(in string message) { // in as we don't escape or modify t= he = input while(true) { // loop until we get true/false write(message, " (false or true): "); // avoid concat allocatio= n string input; do { // no need to check input on entering input =3D readln().chomp(); // UFCS } while(!input); // no need to check length try return input.to!bool; catch {} // don't care if it's not true/false. Keep nagging } } void main() { auto input =3D read_bool("Do it?"); writeln(input ? "Hell yeah, do it!" : "No way!"); }

Ah, ok. I still haven't read the chapters you've translated. Guess I should do this as you give away all your hard work for free. Do you mind me asking why you give away the translation for free btw? Yo= ur = selling the Turkish version, right?

Human psychology is not linear :-) Sometimes if you pay some (a little) money you think of it as more important. Sometimes if you have a way to give back to the author you feel better, and this makes you appreciate more the work. Money isn't just for money. Money has also effects on the mind of people :-) Bye, bearophile

Well money is nothing but effect in our mind... I know that, for quite some time now, whenever I find a book as a free pdf and I like it, I make a point to buy it anew, as a paper version, so as to transmit some money to the author. Going back to the current subject, we cannot help Ali any, without knowing Turkish. I *guess* some of us could start a 2nd level translation (japanese, russian, italian, german and french are likely possibilities).

Ouch those pages just hurt my eyes. I had enough of the Korean language when I was in Korea. However it is a good thing it's getting translated and more coverage; I just hope most of the comments (and code) stay in english since it's kinda de-facto for most computer languages.

I get erros to compile the code posted by simendsjo. I try modify 
at my own, but without success. The code suggest by Timon Gehr

Honestly speaking, i didn't have enough knowledge to understand 
the solutions offered (yet). What is the smallest way to use the 
"read_bool"?


Besides, one version of that tutorial in portuguese would be 
great =D

Works for me. Maybe readln behaves differently on windows?

This works: import std.stdio, std.string, std.conv; bool read_bool(in string message) { while(true) { write(message, " (false or true): "); string input; do { input = readln().chomp(); } while(!input.length); writeln("INPUT: '", input, "'"); try return input.to!bool(); catch {} } } void main() { write("How many are we?

Very interesting way to solve the problem (at least for a noobie like me ^^ ). Thanks for the help!
