D.gnu - Remove elements from char[] throws error

Consider this small program:


import std.stdio;
import std.algorithm;

void main() {
     char[] a = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e'];
     writeln(remove(a, 1, 3));
}


DMD compiles this fine. But GDC throws the following error:

error: no overload matches for remove
      writeln(remove(a, 1, 3));
                    ^

Though calling 'remove' with int[] works just fine.

I am new to D (but not to programming in general). Is it a GDC 
bug? If not, how to avoid this error?

gdc bundles an older version of the std library, so that particular overload was probably added more recently. You could possibly `cast(ubyte[]) a` in there to select a different overload.

Got it! Thanks
