Because the D build process is f***ed up and the website build
process is yet another layer of crap on top of it.
I'm sorry to be so harsh, but that's the simple truth of the
matter. I recently added a new binding module in there and it
took me, plus the reviewers, like four iterations just to get it
included in the druntime build correctly (and it is just
bindings! it doesn't even do anything) and the website build
duplicates those lists AGAIN.
BTW, I run a D documentation search engine that digs deeper than
the main page:
Stick a function name in there and see what it gives you. For
isatty, it gives:
D code»D Builtins»core.sys.posix.unistd
telling you that it is there, though no extra docs are written.
Then you can try finding it on the real site or just importing it.
It is useful to find the module for functions as tehy move too:
walkLength D code»D Builtins»std.range.primitives
This is a best-effort implementation of $(D length) for any kind
Not perfect, but helps to find things. It also has indexed my
The docs aren't really readable there but the indexing helps find
where to look.
