clear()
To empty many arrays of various types, rather than:

clear(arr1);
clear(arr2);
...
clear(arrN);

is there something like:

clear(ALL);

Also, after "clear(arr)", will "arr ~= value" assign starting from element 0?

Not sure what this would do.  Clear all arrays?  That isn't possible.

No, but perhaps you can do a:
foreach(a; ALL)
  a.clear()

But that would require you having an iterable sequence that contains all 
of your arrays, which may or may not be worth your time to explore.

That should probably be

foreach ( a; ALL )
    clear( a );
