digitalmars.D.learn - Why can't I resize an array of associative arrays?

reply Justin <mrjnewt hotmail.com> writes:
I'd like to have an array (plain vanilla) of associate arrays. I'm thinking of
it as a sort of table, with the header for each column being the key of the
element. Strangely, though, the following program simply doesn't work; it
doesn't crash--it just hangs (before printing out the array length).

module test2;

import std.stdio,
	std.string;
	
static void main() {

	string[string][] arrayOfAAs;
	arrayOfAAs.length = 9;
	writefln(arrayOfAAs.length);

}
