Function std.range.primitives.empty

Implements the range interface primitive empty for types that obey hasLength property and for narrow strings. Due to the fact that nonmember functions can be called with the first argument using the dot notation, a.empty is equivalent to empty(a).

bool empty(T) (
  auto scope ref T a
) @property
if (is(typeof(a.length) : size_t));


auto a = [ 1, 2, 3 ];
assert(a[3 .. $].empty);

int[string] b;
b["zero"] = 0;
