Functions and types that manipulate built-in arrays and associative arrays.
Functions which operate on ASCII characters.
Support for Base64 encoding and decoding.
Arbitrary-precision ('bignum') arithmetic.
Bit-level manipulation facilities.
Identify the compiler used and its various features.
This module contains the Complex type, which is used to represent complex numbers, along with related mathematical operations and functions.
This is a low-level messaging API upon which more structured or restrictive APIs may be built. The general idea is that every messageable entity is represented by a common handle type called a Tid, which allows messages to be sent to logical threads that are executing in both the current process and in external processes using the same interface. This is an important aspect of scalability because it allows the components of a program to be spread across available resources with few to no changes to the actual implementation.
This module defines generic containers.
A one-stop shop for converting values from one type to another. Typical usage: to!SomeType(some_variable);
Implements functionality to read Comma Separated Values and its variants from an input range of dchar.
Module containing Date/Time functionality.
Demangle D mangled names.
This module describes the digest APIs used in Phobos. All digests follow these APIs. Additionally, this module contains useful helper methods which can be used with every digest type.
Classes and functions for handling and transcoding between various encodings.
This module defines functions related to exceptions and general error handling. It also defines functions intended to aid in unit testing.
This package contains experimental modules that are being tested prior to an expected release into the main Phobos std namespace.
This module implements the formatting functionality for strings and I/O. It's comparable to C99's vsprintf() and uses a similar format encoding scheme.
Functions that manipulate other functions.
Processing of command line options.
Contains the elementary mathematical functions (powers, roots, and trigonometric functions), and low-level floating-point operations. Mathematical special functions are available in std.mathspecial.
Mathematical Special Functions
Templates to manipulate template argument lists (also known as type lists).
Read and write memory mapped files.
This module is a port of a growing fragment of the numeric header in Alexander Stepanov's Standard Template Library, with a few additions.
Serialize data to ubyte arrays.
std.parallelism implements high-level primitives for SMP parallelism. These include parallel foreach, parallel reduce, parallel eager map, pipelining and future/promise parallelism. std.parallelism is recommended when the same operation is to be executed in parallel on different data, or when a function is to be executed in a background thread and its result returned to a well-defined main thread. For communication between arbitrary threads, see std.concurrency.
This module is used to manipulate and inspect path strings (and string-like objects).
Functions for starting and interacting with other processes, and for working with the current process' execution environment.
Facilities for random number generation.
This module defines the notion of a range. Ranges generalize the concept of arrays, lists, or anything that involves sequential access. This abstraction enables the same set of algorithms (see std.algorithm) to be used with a vast variety of different concrete types. For example, a linear search algorithm such as std.algorithm.searching.find works not just for arrays, but for linked-lists, input files, incoming network data, etc.
Regular expressions are a commonly used method of pattern matching on strings, with regex being a catchy word for a pattern in this domain specific language. Typical problems usually solved by regular expressions include validation of user input and the ubiquitous find & replace in text processing utilities.
Signals and Slots are an implementation of the Observer Pattern. Essentially, when a Signal is emitted, a list of connected Observers (called slots) are called.
This module wraps socket functionality with a cross-platform interface.
D constrains integral types to specific sizes. But efficiency of different sizes varies from machine to machine, pointer sizes vary, and the maximum integer size varies. stdint offers a portable way of trading off size vs efficiency, in a manner compatible with the stdint.h definitions in C.
Standard I/O functions that extend core.stdc.stdio. core.stdc.stdio is publically imported when importing std.stdio.
String handling functions.
Information about the target operating system, environment, and CPU.
Templates which extract information about types and symbols at compile time.
This module implements a variety of type constructors, i.e., templates that allow construction of new, useful general-purpose types.
This module was renamed to disambiguate the term tuple, use std.meta instead.
Encode and decode Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs). URIs are used in internet transfer protocols. Valid URI characters consist of letters, digits, and the characters ;/?:@&=+$,-_.!~*'() Reserved URI characters are ;/?:@&=+$, Escape sequences consist of % followed by two hex digits.
Encode and decode UTF-8, UTF-16 and UTF-32 strings.
std.windows provides helper functions for interacting with the Win32 API.
Warning: This module is considered out-dated and not up to Phobos' current standards. It will remain until we have a suitable replacement, but be aware that it will not remain long term.
Read/write data in the zip archive format. Makes use of the etc.c.zlib compression library.
Compress/decompress data using the zlib library.
