I changed it to "x=notfunny(x);" and has the same result.
Now you are changing the value of the temporary loop variable that is still immediately discarded afterwards.
You should return a new range that has the values you want, not try to mutate the range you're given.
You should provide a code instead of describing my mistakes!!
I agree to the extent that I wanted to do so, and might still have if a delivery hadn't interrupted by post. But one way to encourage others to put in more effort is put in effort yourself. Here you have your first post, where you didn't use 'preview' to check that your formatting worked, or review when linked Markdown guide to see what the problem was when it didn't work. In that post you also didn't describe what the problem was or ask any question, or say what you wanted to accomplish. It wasn't until your second post that it was even clear to me that you wanted to reimplement
map. I thought the addition was a placeholder. The thread title is also a placeholder title for a thread.
In your second and third posts, it didn't come across at all that you'd put much thought into your questions before asking them. The second post--just look at your code. There's a function call and data going nowhere. That should be pretty easy to see. For the third post, if you thought that 'foreach' aliased the members of a range to the degree that simple assignment would update the range, you could test that thought in an instant:
$ rdmd --eval 'auto a = [1, 2, 3]; foreach (n; a) n = 0; writeln(a)'
[1, 2, 3]
It seemed to me that with these quickly asked questions that you're treating the thread like an ongoing interpersonal dialogue where questions are cheap. That's fine, really. I didn't mind that you didn't put in a lot of effort because it also didn't require a lot of effort to help you. But if you're going to complain about it, at least put the effort into asking for what you want at the outset.
The last thing that discouraged me from writing a full example is that I wasn't sure that I'd really be helping you. If you're trying to do this, don't you have a range tutorial open? That should already be pretty well-written already. Now that I've helped you with some incidental problems you should get back to the tutorial and see where you got things mixed up. My guess was that you didn't realize you should be returning a new range, and not trying to modify the range you were given.
If you don't have a tutorial open, the first link at https://dlang.org/phobos/std_range.html is pretty good: http://ddili.org/ders/d.en/ranges.html You won't find the exact thing you want to do, but if you put that aside and thoroughly go through that chapter, the only way you won't be able to do what you want to do is if you get caught up again by some other more fundamental issue with D. The worst likely outcome is that you'll get something that works but that isn't a great way to do it. You should post that code here for feedback.
