indexOf used to be in std.algorithm I believe. It was nixed for having 
too simple an implementation I believe.

I have also created a bufref library [1] which is intended to help with 
using phobos algorithms and not losing the positional information.

import std.stdio;
import std.algorithm;
import bufref;

void main()
     string x = "hello, world!";
