- Paul Backus (22/45) Apr 27 Nice example! A couple small improvements:
- drug (18/34) Apr 28 Functional style
- Paul Backus (6/10) Apr 28 Alternatively:
- drug (2/14) Apr 28 it's better alternative!
- Timon Gehr (4/19) Apr 29 ```d
- drug (2/23) Apr 29 it's the best! :)
- Q. Schroll (5/15) Apr 29 ```d
- Berni44 (4/8) Apr 29 I fear that new users might already be swamped with functional
- Dennis (13/16) Apr 29 I think the range-based functional style of D is overrepresented.

- WebFreak001 (22/40) Apr 29 I personally think it can be used very well with foreach:

``` // Estimate π using random integers void main() { import std.stdio, std.random, std.math, std.conv; ulong gcd(ulong a, ulong b) { if (b == 0) return a; return gcd(b, a % b); } Mt19937_64 gen; gen.seed(unpredictableSeed!ulong); int pairCount = 1_000_000; int coprimeCount = 0; ulong a, b; for (int i = 0; i < pairCount; i++) { a = gen.front; gen.popFront(); b = gen.front; gen.popFront(); if (gcd(a, b) == 1) coprimeCount++; } double prob = coprimeCount.to!double / pairCount.to!double; writefln("π ≈ %.15f", sqrt(6.0 / prob)); } ```

A couple small improvements: * You can use `std.numeric.gcd` instead of writing your own. * You can use a `foreach` loop instead of a `for` loop. ``` // Estimate π using random integers void main() { import std.stdio, std.random, std.math, std.conv, std.numeric; Mt19937_64 gen; gen.seed(unpredictableSeed!ulong); int pairCount = 1_000_000; int coprimeCount = 0; ulong a, b; foreach (int i; 0 .. pairCount) { a = gen.front; gen.popFront(); b = gen.front; gen.popFront(); if (gcd(a, b) == 1) coprimeCount++; } double prob = coprimeCount.to!double / pairCount.to!double; writefln("π ≈ %.15f", sqrt(6.0 / prob)); } ```

(But nice anyway.)I think the range-based functional style of D is overrepresented. When I first landed on the homepage, I saw the "Sort lines" example which scared me off. It looked totally unfamiliar, I thought D was more akin to Scala/Haskell than the Java/C-like languages I was most familiar with. Only later did I figure out that D really is a newer C/C++ like the name implies, and the range programming is just Phobos acting on top of it. In all the examples, there is not a single `if`/`do`/`while`/`for` statement, not a single `class` or `interface` declaration, and only 1 `struct` declaration. I think it wouldn't hurt to have examples showing boring/traditional code in D syntax in addition to the fancy, 'code-golfy' programs.

Terseness does not make for good programming practice or understanding. The examples showcase code I never want to see... ( ;_; ) Like: ```d "Starting program".writeln; ``` Or this innocent looking code, by good fortune whoami isn't malicious: ``` auto result = ["whoami"].execute; ```
