Remove elements from char[] throws error
March 01
Consider this small program:


import std.stdio;
import std.algorithm;

void main() {
    char[] a = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e'];
    writeln(remove(a, 1, 3));
}


DMD compiles this fine. But GDC throws the following error:

error: no overload matches for remove
     writeln(remove(a, 1, 3));
                   ^

Though calling 'remove' with int[] works just fine.

I am new to D (but not to programming in general). Is it a GDC bug? If not, how to avoid this error?

gdc bundles an older version of the std library, so that particular overload was probably added more recently.

You could possibly `cast(ubyte[]) a` in there to select a different overload.

Got it! Thanks
