Should this compile? dmd says

Multiple points:

- lockstep works only with foreach loops but it's not a range.

- std.range.zip can be used instead but it does not provide 'ref' access to its elements.

- However, since slices are already references to groups of elements, you don't need 'ref' anyway.

- You seem to want to assign to elements in parallel; such functionality already exists in std.parallelism.

- Phobos documentation is not very useful these days as it's not clear from the following page that there are goodies like amap, asyncBuf, etc. It just shows parallel() and a few friends at the top:


One needs to know to click TaskPool:


The following amap example there may be useful for your case but I could not make the types work:

// Same thing, but explicitly allocate an array
// to return the results in.  The element type
// of the array may be either the exact type
// returned by functions or an implicit conversion
// target.
auto squareRoots = new float[numbers.length];
taskPool.amap!sqrt(numbers, squareRoots);

// Multiple functions, explicit output range, and
// explicit work unit size.
auto results = new Tuple!(float, real)[numbers.length];
taskPool.amap!(sqrt, log)(numbers, 100, results);
