Like I said in my first message, the D default rounds off more 
than the C default. This usually results in more readable stuff - 
the extra noise at the end is not that helpful in most cases.

But you can change this with the format specifiers (use 
`writefln` instead of `writeln` and give a precision argument) 
or, of course, you can use the same C printf function from D.
