If A is null, crash.

A?.B : writeln("HAHA");

No crash, ignored, equivalent to

if (A is null) writeln("HAHA"); else A.B;

The "optional" package on dub [1] has a .dispatch method that does this:

    auto d = some(A());

    // Dispatch to one of its methods

    d.dispatch.f(); // calls a.f, returns some(4)
    d.dispatch.inner.g(); // calls a.inner.g, returns some(7)

    // Use on a pointer or reference type as well
    A* e = null;

    // If there's no value in the reference type, dispatching
    // works, and produces an optional
    assert(e.dispatch.f() == none);
    assert(e.dispatch.inner.g() == none);
