digitalmars.D.learn - Regex multiple matches

using the rule (?P<name>regex)

e.g., (?P<names>\w*)*

how do we get at all the matches, e.g., Joe Bob Buddy?

When I access the results captures they are are not arrays and I 
only ever get the first match even when I'm using matchAll.

Pseudo code: foreach(result; matcher) { ... } It returns an input range that can "act" as an array without the lookup by index, it is a very powerful abstraction.
