digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 21100] New: The internal data of std.container.array.Array


          Issue ID: 21100
           Summary: The internal data of std.container.array.Array cannot
                    be referenced.
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: phobos

In after C++11 std::vector, it defines data() function to retrieve internal

It would be a convenience to make it available in std.container.array.Array as
well, with  system and a clear indication that dangling is a possibility.
This feature is useful for making simple dump files and interfacing with C.
Also, in the case of simple byte sequence memory operations, it is expected to
be faster than Range.
