using encodings other than UTF-8
hi!
I just recently found D on the Internet and it's very interesting.

trying to write some simple code I've got into trouble caused by national  
characters,
not encoded in UTF-8.
is there any way to process characters in other encodings?
or is D UTF-8 only?

Unicode only. It does UTF8, UTF16 and UTF32 but no other encodings. Note
that ASCII is a subset of UTF8, being codes from 00-7F inclusive.

I think the Mango and Tango libraries have bindings to other libraries that
can do other encoding translations.

Have a look into http://www.dsource.org/projects/mango and
http://www.dsource.org/projects/tango
