digitalmars.D.learn - std.format.format() ... ??!!

Hello all,

I'm currently messing around in the internals of std.complex (cf. discussion on 
main mailing list:-).  In Complex.toString there is a deprecation message
asking 
the user to "use std.format.format()".

However, so far as I can tell both via docs and browsing std/format.d there
_is_ 
no std.format.format() -- there's only std.string.format().

So, what gives? :-)

Thanks & best wishes,

for string formatting use std.string.format, it is like writefln but for strings.

Which I normally do. :-) But in this case my question is slightly more specific ...

Thanks for the quick merge. std.complex.Imaginary to follow :-)
I don't know... Is it actually possible merge imaginary code? ;)

Yes, but the lines run up and down the screen ;-)
Rotate the code by 90 to get real code! But be careful which direction you rotate the code; it may end up doing the opposite of what it's intended to do. And I'm not sure github supports this kind of merging. But that's tangential to the issue! :P T -- The diminished 7th chord is the most flexible and fear-instilling chord. Use it often, use it unsparingly, to subdue your listeners into submission!
