Any experience with D?

P: n/a
I haven't been able to find a specific newsgroup for the D programming
language. I think the language's features looks promising, just hven't
got a feel for the stage the available compilers are in today. I know of
the Gnu GDC and the Digital Mars D Compiler, but maybe there's more.

Any experience here with how well the different compilers do at the
moment ? Or a pointer to the correct ng for this topic?

TIA

There probably isn't one. Contact your ISP and find out.

You mean, there are actually compilerS for it? I thought there was
only one, distributed by its author and creator and tireless promoter.
It's all off-topic here, anyway.

Maybe. Again, how is it relevant *here*?

Again, why are you asking here? This is a C++ newsgroup.

That language has a single author, doesn't it? It has a website, does
it not? On that web site, there is a way to contact the author and
developer[s], is there not? So, please use them. Here any language
except C++ and C (only as pertinent to C++) is OFF-TOPIC.

The sheer fact that you're unable to find a cooking newsgroup (or that
there isn't any) does not make it OK to ask *cooking* questions in
a *hunting* newsgroup, for example.

Do you know the expression: "your point is clear" Victor?
You might as well have kept at least 90% of your rather patronizing
reply to yourself.
But it does seem to be the normal way of communicating in some
programming newsgroups, where some think of themselves as Cerberus
guarding the gates. I just won't swallow this type of crap response
without making sure you know it's not appreciated.I wonder if you would
strike the same tone if I sat at your table physically. There's a word
for your behaviour: rude.

I disagree with you C++ groups are so utterly wrong a place to ask about
a language (D) for which apparantly has a lot of similarities with C++
and might therefore be within the intrests of people programming C++,
especially since there seems to be no specific group for D.

Your opinion about the "One-man Language D" are noted, and now we are
nitpicking, as much off-topic here as my request, according to your
standards.

Thanks for nothing really. But I suppose you got that message already.

Now I see how I wandered of the right track Jens, thanks for setting me
straight on this omission :)
Thanks for making me laugh! Nice way to start a Sunday

Yeah! They told me "D is for Donkeys", but I did refuse to believe...
....until now.

On the contrary. Victor's response is highly appreciated. We don't
need any more off topic posts. If you came into a lecture on C++
and started asking D questions in the question period, I would hope
you got shut down just as quickly.

If you came into a lecture on Etruscan poetry and started asking
about Egyptian sculpture, I would hope you got shut down just
as quickly.

And what word would you use to describe someone who knowingly wastes
all our time and bandwidth with off-topic posts just because they can't
find a topical forum? I certainly can't see anything polite or
considerate in that sort of behaviour.

You can find the newsgroups for the D programming language at:
