digitalmars.D.learn - How do I check if a variable is a multidimensional (2D) array?

I know there is isArray!T and similar functionality in 
std.traits. But I couldn't find the functionality that can help 
me check if I have a multidimensional array. Is there any? How do 
I create my own?

Thanks in advance.

from https://github.com/PhilippeSigaud/D-templates-tutorial ```d template rank(T) { static if (is(T t == U[], U)) enum size_t rank = 1 + rank!(U); else enum size_t rank = 0; } unittest { int a; int[] b; int[][] c; assert(rank!(typeof(a)) == 0); assert(rank!(typeof(b)) == 1); assert(rank!(typeof(c)) == 2); } ``` as an example of a recursive template. There's also an implementation for ranges.
