Someone revived the Expressive C++17 Coding Challenge thread
today and I thought this is an excellent opportunity to revive
my blog and finally write an article showing why I like D so
It's mostly targeted at beginners as I explain many basic D
features, but maybe it's helpful for beginners looking into D.
Nice! Good overview of many of the good things in D.
I used the following rdmd script to generate a simple CSV file
with 10 fields and 10m lines:
rdmd --eval='10.iota.map!(a=> "field".text(a)).join(",")
.repeat(10_00_000).joiner("\n").writeln' > input_big.csv
10_00_000 should probably be 10_000_000.
They are only view on the actual memory and you don’t copy the
array, but just the view on (in D it’s called a slice).
Missing some words here: "only *a* view". "but just the view on"
seems to be missing the second half of the sentence.
There's also a few typos: 'vauge' should be 'vague', 'it
providers' should be 'it provides', 'shot yourself in the feet'
should probably be 'shoot yourself in the foot'
Thanks for writing all this - it's a great intro to the language.
