File.lockingBinaryWriter is not output range?
March 19
/+ dub.sdl:
name "hello_world"
+/

import std.algorithm, std.range, std.stdio;

void main()
{
    // lockingBinaryWriter: Returns an output range that locks the file and allows fast writing to it.
    // https://dlang.org/library/std/stdio/file.locking_binary_writer.html

    stdout.lockingBinaryWriter.put(cast(byte) 123); // works

    // But this assert is false:
    static assert(isOutputRange!(typeof(stdout.lockingBinaryWriter), byte));
}

This blocks to user File as Stream for msgpack-d.

This doesn't seem necessary :)

static assert(isOutputRange!(typeof(stdout.lockingBinaryWriter()), byte));

typeof(stdout.lockingBinaryWriter) is a function type. You need the ().

Looks like isOutputRange is not checks "put" method properly?

I add it ~everywhere for faster reproducing of cases.

Ooops! Thanks! :-)

Not sure what you mean by this, because 1) it's not even doing anything if there are no dependencies on Dub packages, and 2) test cases should be self-contained and not have external dependencies anyway. If the test case can only be reproduced with some compiler switches, a shebang using rdmd (with --shebang for multiple switches) can be used to illustrate it.
