In many cases the use of scanf can be replaced with drastically faster methods, as I discuss in my talks on optimization (including Brasov recently). I hope they'll release the videos soon. -- Andrei

Oh absolutely. My issue with the benchmark is just that it claims to be a JSON parser benchmark but the bulk of CPU time is actually spent parsing floats. I'm on my phone though so perhaps this is a different benchmark--I can't easily check. The one I recall came up a year or so ago and was discussed on D.general.
