Writing Python code shows that computing the sum of a sequence of int/FP values
is a very common operation. In D you may write it as:

import std.stdio: writeln;
import std.algorithm: reduce;
void main() {
    auto arr = new double[10];
    arr[] = 1.0;
    auto t = reduce!q{a + b}(arr);
    writeln(t);
}



But I suggest to create std.algorithm.sum() as shorthand, because reduce
requires a bit of cognitive burden that is out of place for this so common and
basic operation:

import std.stdio: writeln;
import std.algorithm: sum;
void main() {
    auto arr = new double[10];
    arr[] = 1.0;
    auto t = sum(arr);
    writeln(t);
}


As second optional argument sum() may accept the starting value:
auto total = sum(range, 0.0);
