It’s 2022 already and BetterC still imposes limits at compile
time and makes things awkward.
I have 3 integer enums that represents my library version. And I
want to generate a "1.2.3" enum from them. This is a trivial
thing to do in standard D but I can’t find a way to do it with
BetterC enabled. I can’t use `to`, `text`, `sformat` or
`toChars`, as none of them is compatible with BetterC. And I
can’t use `sprintf` either because ‘stdc’ is not available at
On the other hand, string to integer conversion is simple: just
‘mixin’ it! So as a workaround, I put numbers into private string
enums, and the integer enums are generated from them. But this is
Maybe I’m missing something?
