Summary: Fix separator schizophrenia
--- Comment #0 from Jonathan M Davis <jmdavisp...@gmx.com> 2011-02-19 22:16:46
Some functions in Phobos take an element for a separator whereas others take a
range. For instance, splitter takes an element, but its opposite - joiner -
takes a range. findSplit* take a range and split on that (though they don't
technically take a seperator per se) but until takes an element. I keep having
to look up functions to know whether the separator they take is a single
element or a range of them.
I would think that it would behoove us to make the functions in Phobos which
take separators _consistent_ and make them all take a range for their separator
rather than having some take a range and some take a single element. It would
definitely improve useability. And if it's a problem to have them all take a
range for their separator, then maybe they should have two versions - one which
takes an element for the separator and one which takes a range.
