digitalmars.D.learn - std.stdio.stderr

It appears that std.stdio.stderr does not wor exactly as stdio stderr
does. In particular std.stdio.stderr.writef(=E2=80=A6) does not work as
fprintf(stderr=E2=80=A6) does.

Some code I am porting from C++ to D makes use of ANSI escape codes to
go up a line and overwrite what was there, as well as change colours.
This work fine in the C++ code but fails in the D code. The codes are
definitely all the same, the only difference is in the writing
functions.

Is this problem to be expected or should it work?

Hi Russel, It seems to work for me with a dumb example: ``` import std.stdio; void main() { writefln("stdout: %s", "Edit source/app.d to start your project."); stderr.writefln("stderr: %s", "Edit source/app.d to start your project."); stderr.writefln("stderr: %s", "Edit source/app.d to start your project."); stderr.writefln("%s", ""); } ``` Before copy/paste take into account that in sequences like "[7m", etc... there's a hidden ESC char at the beginning, something like: "\033[7m", and I can't see it in the preview of my posting.

[=E2=80=A6] Spurred on by your report of success, I discovered my error. D treats a char[1024] as 1024 characters when using the %s format specifier. I had to use fromStringz using a cast to get the %s to get the null terminated string. The problems of idiomatic C code (crap) converted to D code (good, but with hacks). Thanks for your reply, it was most helpful. --=20 Russel. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.winder ekiga.n= et 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: russel winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder
