Just because I'm a simple man. :)

I usually program mostly in C and when in D, I go in the same way 
but using features like: GC, strings, AA etc.

Of course your version is a D'ish way of handling things, and I 
can't contest it looks better visually. But if size was problem I 
could have written:

void main(){
     string s, str = "4A0B1de!2C9~6";
     	(i >= '0' && i <= '9') ? s~=i : null;

Well still 1 line off, but I goes with my flow. I mean this 
example is a simple one, but usually I can see and understand 
what a code in C is doing (more) easily than D just looking at 
it. Don't even ask about C++, because I gave up. :)


PS: I spotted something on your code, you're converting the 
result to int, this can lead to a overflow depending the values 
in the string.
