when i use this code:

i've looked about in this forum, but all that i could find was people in
2016[!] saying the codepage had to be altered - clearly nonsense, since
Rust [which i am also learning] has no problem whatsoever displaying "♥".
This is not nonsense. This is the correct solution if that is what you
intend for your program to do.
Not everybody will want this. They may have set the code page themselves
in some way. It may not have even occurred within a D application!
Its best we leave it as the default to play nice with other applications
is there any function i can call or setting i can adjust to get D to do
the same, or do i have to wait for something to be fixed in the language
/ compiler itself?
Not a bug. This is a known issue on the Windows side for people new to
developing natively for it.
I just checked the terminal emulator I use, ConEmu and yeah it doesn't
have to do anything to make Unicode "just work" settings wise. Its
conhost with its legacy which is what you are facing.
