When I tried to apply to a position at Symmetry, I've got a
criticism from Atila Neves that some of my code relied too much
on memcpy, thus making it unsafe. After digging into std.array,
I found some function that could possibly replace it to emulate
writing in the middle of a file, but at least for VFile, I need
some type agnostic solution.
I don't understand your use case, but for me, I try not to escape
the type system. Instead of using void*, I recommend templating.
That is the approach I took here:
https://github.com/JinShil/memcpyD It still does explicit casts
to prevent code bloat, which is still escaping the type system,
but at least it avoids pointer arithmetic.
I'm not sure if that's helpful, but regardless, there it is.
