I've managed to make this work right now:
	group!(code, msg) = getError();

as well as (with a different function):
	group_!(code, msg) = getError();
	auto myGroup = group_!(code, msg);
	myGroup = getError();
(The second example has several implementations in fact. Unfortunately, 
all of them currently allocate a closure for the variables if they're 
local. The first one doesn't have that problem)

All of this is D2+Phobos, by the way. Though something similar could 
likely be made in D1 (minus the closure issues, obviously).


Unfortunately it does have a severe limitation: it only works on 
straight variables because it uses alias template parameters.
You can't assign to *b or foo.a, for instance (unless it's static).

See attachment for code.

Take a look at the Record!(), record in my libs (for D1), in modules templates
and func

Is there a link to online documentation?

Yes, there is (only because you are one of the most gentle persons of this newsgroup):
http://www.fantascienza.net/leonardo/so/dlibs/all.html

The form of that page will improve later.

Sure.

$ is not an identifier, but this will work.

import tools.base;

alias ptuple _;

Stuple!(int, string) test() { return stuple(4, "foo"); }

void main() { int a; string b; _(a, b) = test(); }

$(a, b);
_(a, b);
