Your best bet would probably be the suggested std.cstream. However, just
cause I want to I will point you to my readf function.

Please note that I wrote this when I really didn't know much about scanf
or any of the other functions, in fact I know little D and C.

It doesn't handle all types, but I do continually use it when I want input
in D, and it just feels more D like then those C functions.
