My version in D seems more straightforward than either C++ version on 
that site, so they can't really be compared. I'd have to port my D 
version to C++, but I don't know enough STL and am reluctant to learn it.

Doing the task in D was just incredible easy and straightforward. And 
the result runs faster than that C++ version, which is not really saying 
much about D, knowing the excess string conversions in the C++ version.
