Strictly speaking it's not a keyword, just a template name.

std.conv is pretty good for conversions like this. You can read 
about casting at , and I 
have a quickref for string conversions at

There's a lot to say about string conversions. Phobos date&time 
conversions deserve a quickref like that, too. On numerical 
conversions, D is very similar to other languages. OOP casting is 
noteworthy in that it can fail with `null`.
