    erm hi,

    if it was a greeting u were posting, post to GD - that way you wont be defrocked by the mods and their sticks.

    as in your post title - D langugae
    there is no D language -
    C was the language that followed the B language
    the B language was so-named because it was developed at Bell labs.

    note: the message above was posted when the original message read only " Hi guys"

    I believe Iain is trying to kindly point out your post is off-topic. Regardless of the existence of a 'D' programming language, this is the C programming forum.

    Cheers,

    I get that you don't like people posting non C topics. but D is just as much a C topic as C# or B or eC. There's no reason to reject this kind of post.
    and in response to the post...
    its a nice language, but theres no reason to choose it over c++ (or similar). if i wanted to do some of the things that D tries to do, i wouldn't choose a C-style language at all. i would use some fruity language like java. what i mean is. D tries to do things that C++ programmers don't care about doing in the first place. if it ain't broke, don't rename it and add useless alternative libraries.

    You do realize that you've dredged up a 9 year old thread for this....

    I recently spent a couple of weeks investigating and trying to learn D... It's easy enough to get your head around, however the support mechanism is horridly flawed. Libraries that should be simple were turned over to open-source meddling. They are now deeply flawed compilations of stuff nobody will ever use and most won't even compile on Windows. Moreover it cannot import or link with the Microsoft SDK's headers and libraries, making any windows programming a minefield of broken translations and uncompilable headers. The author had all the right ideas but went about it in every wrong way imaginable...

    It's a dead niche language, and for good reasons.

    Best, I think, we should let this 9 year old sleeping dog alone.

    Has it really been that long since the last person who discovered D started a thread on here?

    Yer it's old news. Did you know that Code::Blocks has a D plugin for dealing with D source code too?

    Yep... had D running in code blocks sufficient to write a couple of console programs.

    Nice language -- native strings !Yeah! -- but the libraries were a complete mess.
