           Summary: Make D runtime ignore or handle SIGPIPE or document
                    the behavior

reproducer, -i to ignore SIGPIPE

Writing to a pipe may fail in case of a missing reader. The OS may then send
the writing process a SIGPIPE signal which terminates the process silently
(symptom: no output, exit code 141 [1]).

STR (all in BASH on Linux)

1. $ dmd sigpipe
2. $ for i in {1..100}; do echo $i; ./sigpipe || echo "*** FAIL rc=$? ***";

Found: About 10 % *** FAIL rc=141 ***
Expected: About 10 % caught: Enforcement failed (Broken pipe)
(re-run the sigpipe with -i argument)

Maybe related to issue 1491. Ideally

   signal (SIGPIPE, SIG_IGN);

would be called before running main.
