characters are written to the stream?
As I can see there is no division to *byte* streams and *text* writers as in
.Net.

I don't know for sure, but I suspect that the implementation probably just writes without validating, so you could probably get away with just casting a ubyte array to to a char array. That said, std.stream is antiquated. I believe it was one of the earliest Phobos libraries, and I suspect it was written largely to avoid dependency on C functions. Phobos streams are long overdue for a revamp, and that may well happen sooner rather than later.

I would recommend looking at the streams in Tango instead. -- Lars Ivar Igesund blog at http://larsivi.net DSource, #d.tango & #D: larsivi Dancing the Tango

Personally, I tend to use the C functions, fopen(), fclose(), etc..
They're rock solid, bog standard, and work with both D1 and D2.
