import std.bigint, std.conv;
void main() {
    string s = text(BigInt(1));
}


In DMD 2.055beta it gives:

...\src\phobos\std\conv.d(829): Error: function std.bigint.BigInt.toString
(void delegate(const(char)[]) sink, string formatString) const is not callable
using argument types ()
...\src\phobos\std\conv.d(829): Error: expected 2 function arguments, not 0


See also notes in bug 4122 :

My suggestion is to change the signature of BigInt.toString() from this:

void toString(void delegate(const (char)[]) sink, string formatString) const {


To something like this:

string toString(void delegate(string) sink=null, string formatString="d") const
{   

And make it return a string filled with the decimal representation when sink is
null; and to return an empty string when sink!=null.

--------

Eventually the signature can even become:

string toString(void delegate(string) sink=null, string formatString="d",
string thousands="") const {

So if thousands="_" the number gets represented as:

"100_000_000_000"

But this is less essential.
