It was typo. Sample code:

import std.stdio;
import std.typecons;

immutable string externFmt = "extern (C) %s %s (%s);";

enum FnType : ubyte { Unknown, Constructor, Function, 
GlobalFunction }

Tuple!(string[], FnType) parse(string source)
{
     return tuple(new string[2], FnType.Unknown);
}

void main(string[] args)
{
     writeln(parse(null));

     foreach (line; stdin.byLine())
     {
         auto result = parse(line.idup); // or missed idup
         //auto t = result[1]; // or typo here

         final switch (result[1])
         {
             case FnType.Constructor: break;
             case FnType.Function: break;
             case FnType.GlobalFunction: break;
             case FnType.Unknown: break;
         }
     }
}

is it normal?

Sorry, this doesn't answer your question but in general, if you are not going to pass the parameter to another function that requires a 'string', then it is better to define that function parameter as 'const char[]': Tuple!(string[], FnType) parse(const char[] source) { // ... } That way you wouldn't need to call .idup on a mutable argument.
