Well, unfortunately, I've generally been in enough of a hurry when coding
that I haven't saved examples of it as I've been coding. I'll have to watch
out for it more and get small examples from that. However, one example which
I have would be
void main(string args)
auto result = args.find('h');
Instead of complaining that I'm using the wrong type with find(), it results
in the error
/path/to/dmd2/linux/bin/../../src/phobos/std/algorithm.d(1763): Error: no
property 'empty' for type 'char'
findAmong() and findAmongSorted() do not have the same problem, so I guess
that they do things differently enough to avoid it.
