Running DUB tools

Some tools require D's package manager DUB. By default, DUB builds a binary and executes it. On a Posix system, the source files can directly be executed with DUB (e.g. ./tests_extractor.d). Alternatively, the full single file execution command can be used:

dub --single tests_extractor.d

Remember that when programs are run via DUB, you need to pass in -- before the program's arguments, e.g dub --single tests_extractor.d -- -i ../phobos/std/algorithm.

For more information, please see DUB's documentation.
