digitalmars.D.learn - std.container.array.Array is not nogc?

Is there a way to use Array in  nogc code:
```
import std.container.array : Array;

 nogc:
void main(string[ ] args)
{
    Array!int ai;
    ai ~= 1;
    assert(ai[0] == 1);
}
```
fails:
```
main.d(8): Error:  nogc function 'D main' cannot call non- nogc function 
'std.container.array.Array!int.Array.opOpAssign!("~", int).opOpAssign' 
 

main.d(9): Error:  nogc function 'D main' cannot call non- nogc function 
'std.container.array.Array!int.Array.opIndex'
```
am I doing something wrong?

No you're not. Array was designed before the nogc attribute was created, so it wasn't coded with it's requirements in mind. Looking at the code, Array allocates GC memory for exception throwing in some cases. These can and should be changed to asserts. I am writing a PR now to fix this. There doesn't seem to be too many cases to fix.
