There are actually a number of ways to do this, which can depend on your objectives. I want to leave you with
import std.file; import std.string; auto data = readText("filename").lineSplitter; data.popFront();
But this reads in the entire content into memory first. And that does not match the Python behavior I was working with.
import std.stdio; import std.string; auto data = File("filename", "r"); data = data.findAmong(["\n", "\r\n"]); data.skipOver("\n", "\r\n");
There is actually a really nice io library called iopipe in the works. In my opinion it is very low level and wouldn't create a simpler example. But I have not gone beyond reading the docs.
And that concludes the series on Python. I will be starting a new series next week in the same spirit.
