Thanks for your reply. As for cast, I seems not to have any
option, because to! doesn't work as I would expect it. It would
return me an array of numbers, instead of a string; So I kept the
cast here, since I certainly know what it's doing -for now-.
I generally use immutables, you caught me, here :-). As of main
and return, I was not aware we could just ignore them if we
didn't need them. I love explicit programming.
However, I'm still stuck with toStringz(). Since it returns an
immutable(char), I can't find how to pass it to Socket.send(),
and I do not seem to be able to cast away the immutable :-s
