Hi Igor,

Some remarks:

1- I guess that  when t is the empty string you should return true, not
false: the empty string is present in any string. So your first static if
should be cut in two.

2- the .found necessary to get the result could be hidden with a two-levels

template substring(string s, string t)
    enum bool substring = substringImpl!(s,t).found;

and rename your substring into substringImpl. Then you can do:

auto s = substring!("fun with gun", "run");

I don't know if you can put substringImpl as a private template inside

3- Maybe you could do a (string s, char c) version which casts the char into
a string and look for it.
