To avoid opening a new bug, I'll reuse this ancient bug report, since the
summary is pretty much the same I'll write for this.

I'm having some performance problems moving some stuff from a lower-level
C-style to a higher-lever D-style. Here is an example:

int find_if(bool delegate(ref int) predicate)
        for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++)
                if (predicate(i))
                        return i;
        return -1;

int main()
//      for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++)
//              if (i == 99)
//                      return i;
//      return -1;
        return find_if((ref int i) { return i == 99; });

The program produced by this source executes 4 times more instructions than the
more direct (lower-level) version commented out. I would expect DMD to inline
all functions/delegates and produce the same asm for both, but that's not the

This is a reduced test-case, but I'm working on improving the GC and I'm really
hitting this problem. If I use this higher-level style in the GC, a Dil run for
generating the Tango docs is 3.33 times slower than the C-ish style used by the
current GC.

So I think this is a real problem for D, it's really important to be able to
encourage people to use the higher-level D constructs.
