Even with this, user has to write two statement, why we can't just have:

  auto s = new float[100](0);

another version:
auto arr = new double[ 10 ];
writeln( arr[5] ); // NaN
arr.length += 10;
writeln( arr[15] ); // NaN

imo NaN is useless, weird and unusual coz integrals and pointers are "all bits zeroes" but float and chars are "all bits ones". WTF? its strange that bool.init is false in such case. .init = "all zeroes" can be faster initialize any block of memory.

I have the same question, why float/double are init to NaN, instead of 0? as other post-C++ language does? e.g Java, C# ...

What's the reason for this design decision?
