How can I make a nested array and flatten it at run time in D?
March 08
I want to make a nested array and flatten it at run-time like this.

auto nestedArray = [1, 2, [3, 4], 5];

auto flattenedArray = myFun(nestedArray);

writeln(flattenedArray);   // => [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]


How can I do this in D?

Please help me out!

There are simpler ways, but looking at the below Rosetta Code link can be very instructive:

You can't write it this way because the nested array has a different type from the other elements. You have to write this as:

	auto nestedArray = [[1], [2], [3, 4], [5]];

Use std.algorithm.iteration.joiner:

	flattenedArray = nestedArray.joiner.array;

Or simpler, use std.array.join:

	flattenedArray = nestedArray.join;
