Proper way to work with huge binary files

Hello all.
After a quick recce on the main D site I couldn't find a how-to for large
binary files.

Suppose I'm using an old machine with limited memory, and I want to compute
the MD5 hash of a 4 GB file.
Do I need to buffer the input as in C++? And how should I check for exceptions?
Example code much appreciated.

Thank you for reading.
