So a guy I know has started on D and tells me it's great, shows improvement to the old C language and I read that this is because C++ keeps backwards compatability, which has some costs, now I wanted to ask you peeps about this, and I really don't want people replying here who are ignorant and just say C/C++ is the best 'cause it is :P be pragmatic as the guy said...
Here are some links:
Comparison - D Programming Language 2.0 - Digital Mars
Overview - D Programming Language 2.0 - Digital Mars
The comparison page says that D doesn't support multi-inheritance which is true, but it uses some other techniques to do multi-heritance, so read up and don't only compare to the comparison page :P
Let's start positive; D is based on C++ and claims that it improves from C++ by not having the old C slow it down, which kinda makes sense. It claims to have a proven 10% better working efficiency, meaning that projects are by theory made 10% faster. And you can read more about it.
The negative part: D is new compared to C++ which is old and has been update to now and still will be, meaning it most likely has less flaws and more time to think about how the language should work/be implemented/whatever. There's more work for C++ programmers than there is for D, but without the programmers being open minded and not ignorant, this will never change :P There's more help to get with C++ and more resources to learn it.
These are some basics I know about.
Now start debating and be reasonable, I want open minded thinking, not ignorant thinking
