Hi All,

    Request your help on the below program, when I execute the 
program without passing any arguments it is throwing Range 
violation errors

Error:
core.exception.RangeError test.d(21): Range violation

Program:
import std.stdio;
import std.getopt;
import std.path;
import core.stdc.stdlib: exit;

void Test1() {
writeln("This is Test1");
}
void Test2() {
writeln("This is Test2");
}
void Test3() {
writeln("This is Help");
}

void main (string[] args) {
if (args.length < 1 || args.length > 2) {
	writeln(args[0].baseName, ":No Arguments Provided");
	exit(-1);
		}

string op = args[1];
getopt(args, std.getopt.config.caseInsensitive, 
std.getopt.config.stopOnFirstNonOption);

switch (op) {
case "dryrun" , "run" :
	Test1;
	Test2;
break;
case "help" :
	Test3;
	break;
default :
		 writefln("Unknown operation");
	 }
}

If args.length is 1 it will call
 string op = args[1];
However, args[1] accesses the second element. Due to above if statement args[1] can be called even though only args[0] exists.

When you pass no arguments, this won't execute as args.length will still be 1, the only argument being the path to the executable -- args[0], of which you are apparently already aware. The if conditional should be this to test for no args: if(args.length == 1)
 string op = args[1];
Because the above conditional passes when you pass no args, this causes a range violation since args[1] doesn't exist.
