It says:

q{   } // error,   is not a valid D token

but...

http://d-programming-language.org/lex.html#Token

This clearly shows that   is a token.

So, which is it?

btw... import std.stdio; void main() { writeln( q{ } ); } This compiles and does what you'd expect in DMD 2.055.

Well, if outdated documentation is a bug, then I suppose so. Done http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=6734 And done! https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/d-programming-language.org/pull/27

There is specifically a category in bugzilla for issues with the website, and the online documentation is included in that. - Jonathan M Davis

I selected that category. "Component: websites" When you select that component it gives you a description: "Component Description Problems with the contents of www.digitalmars.com and www.d-programming-language.org, including the language specification" If that wasn't the right place for the bug then perhaps it shouldn't say that it is! Also, where is the other category that you speak of? I can't see it anywhere.

That _is_ the right category. You seemed to be in doubt about whether documentation bugs went in Bugzilla, so I pointed out that they do. If they're spec bugs (as opposed to bugs in druntime's or Phobos' documentation, which go under druntime and Phobos respectively), they go under the websites component. What you did was correct. - Jonathan M Davis

Ah ok, my bad. I though that you were implying that I had put it in the wrong place!
