I was playing around with regex

import std.regex;
import std.stdio;

void main()
{
     string[] fileNames = [ "011_bad.txt", "01_01_pass", 
"90_pass", "_bad" ];

     auto reg = regex(r"^\d{2}_");

     foreach (name; fileNames)
     {
         auto c = matchFirst(name, reg);

         //writeln(c.hit);  // Slice of matched portion of input.
         if (c.empty)
             writeln(name, " is not the form we are looking for");
         else
             writeln(name, " is a winner");
     }
}

All is good:
011_bad.txt is not the form we are looking for
01_01_pass is a winner
90_pass is a winner
_bad is not the form we are looking for


but then I uncommented the writeln(c.hit); above and all hell 
breaks loose:

I got inspiration from the following "live" code at at 
.../captures.html. I inserted a writeln(c.hit) and here it worked!

import std.range.primitives : popFrontN;

auto c = matchFirst(" abc#", regex(`(\w)(\w)(\w)`));
assert(c.pre == " "); // Part of input preceding match
assert(c.post == "#"); // Immediately after match
assert(c.hit == c[0] && c.hit == "abc"); // The whole match
writeln("My Addition ",c.hit);
writeln(c[2]); // "b"
writeln(c.front); // "abc"
c.popFront();
writeln(c.front); // "a"
writeln(c.back); // "c"
c.popBack();
writeln(c.back); // "b"


and it worked fine:
My Addition abc
b
abc
a
c
b


What gives?  Thanks.
