An empty capture before the end of the string seems to work fine:

    auto m = match( "abc", "ab(.*)c" );
    writefln( "'%s'", m.captures[1] );

-> ''

An empty capture at the end of a string results in the following assert error:

    auto m = match( "abc", "abc(.*)" );
    writefln( "'%s'", m.captures[1] );


In Captures.length :

        @property size_t length()
            foreach (i; 0 .. matches.length)
                if (matches[i].startIdx >= input.length) return i;
            return matches.length;

The test will fail for an empty capture at the end because startIdx == endIdx
== input.length. This seems like it should be a valid case and the following
change seems to resolve the issue:

                if (matches[i].startIdx > input.length) return i;
