digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 15461] New: std.stdio.File ctor that accepts `FILE*` should


          Issue ID: 15461
           Summary: std.stdio.File ctor that accepts `FILE*` should not be
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: phobos

          Reporter: ketmar ketmar.no-ip.org

glibc has a great `fopencookie(3)` call, which can be used to build `FILE*`
objects for arbitrary data sources. yet there is no way to init
`std.stdio.File` with that `FILE*`, which cuts alot of possibilities.

there should be a way to create `std.stdio.File` from existing `FILE*` at least
on systems where `fopencookie(3)` is available.
