Hello,

write and writeln just write; writef and writefln first format: seems clear=
. But the latter do not work properly with D strings, and the former do not=
 work without format. Is there a practical way to just write anything to th=
e terminal (without caring of its type)?

Is there some rationale about this?
Would it be possible to automatically add \0 to D strings passed to write/w=
riteln (can a programmer define a custom func doing this before delegating =
to builtin funcs, or is it necessarily a job for the compiler?)?
And/or what about having writef/writefln use "%s" as default format (when t=
he first arg is not a string)?

I don't understand what you mean. This works just fine: import std.stdio; void main() { string s = "Hello world!"; writeln(s); } If I'm misunderstanding you, please explain, or perhaps give a code example. -Lars

Sorry, seems I just mistake the various C & D ways of coping with strings (= too many forms of char arrays and functions that deal with them). I'll just= stick with D funcs. Denis -- -- -- -- -- -- -- vit esse estrany =E2=98=A3 spir.wikidot.com
