Thank you and please continue doing that. I would have never thought of
contributing to the blog if you hadn't contacted me with an idea.d
I have an article request for anyone who is considering writing
something, which was prompted by a recent thread. There are many
functions in Phobos that can be used for searching and parsing: The ones
in std.algorighm like find, findSplit, splitter, etc.; a few in
std.range like some members of SortedRange; some in std.array like
split; some in std.string like indexOf; and of course std.regex; and more...
It's likely that some of those are redundant or less efficient compared
to others. There must be some simple guidelines to prefer one over the
others. I would enjoy reading such an article. :)
