Generics in Go v2.0 It’s a no-brainer!

Recently there has been a lot of talk about adding Generics to the popular programming language Go. Not only do I think this is a good idea, I actually think it’s a complete no-brainer! Go has been maturing at a rapid rate over the last few years and the Go team have recently started asking for user experiences to influence Go’s future. In my humble opinion, they only need to focus on one thing. Can you guess what it is?

Interacting with files is a fundamental task of any programming language and while such tasks are commonplace, it’s not entirely obvious how to achieve certain file related tasks using D. Hopefully this article will change that and show the simplicity and power of the D language when working with files.

After the success of the last article detailing hidden treasures in the D standard library, I thought I would write another highlighting why the D programming language coupled with its great standard library is surprisingly useful. The library itself is a vast beast and has been written by some exceptional programmers, so occasionally you stumble across some truly useful and well designed nuggets of code. This article shows a few more of these hidden treasures and provides examples of where they could be useful when used in your projects.
