           Summary: Inconsistent string parameters in Phobos functions
           Product: D
           Version: 2.025
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Phobos
        AssignedTo: bugzi...@digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: clugd...@yahoo.com.au


Some trivial inconsistencies in Phobos functions.
Some of them are quite annoying.

std.utf:
string toUTF8(string s);  -> string toUTF8(const(char)[] s);

std.string:
const(char)* toStringz(const(char)[] s); 
      -> immutable(char)* toStringz(const(char)[] s);

(Returning a const is always suspicious).

std.stream:
void write(char[] s); -> void write(const(char)[] s); 
size_t printf(char[] format,...);  -> size_t printf(const(char)[] format,...);

std.encoding:
abstract const string toString(); -> abstract string toString();
