D - Alexander's PDF

I've got Alexander Klinsky's PDF conversion of the 
D language specification. It is really beautiful.

Even as a snapshot it would be of good use for many.

I've uploaded the DOC and PDF so you can take a look
at it:

If we can manage to maintain it without burden Walter
with the work, it would be good.

Can we use it (Walter? Copyright?)?
Should there be a note (Snapshot, may be not up to date)?

Yeah, PDF looks great, but any chance of bookmarked version? Or with
hyperlinks?

What do you mean by "bookmarked"? A table of content? Links to the original HTML-pages? -- Helmut Leitner leitner hls.via.at Graz, Austria www.hls-software.com

There is a tab "Bookmarks" on the left of Acrobat Reader. It contains list
of bookmarks (it often is simply table of contents) and allows to go to
corresponding page when bookmark is pressed.

In Intel documentation it is very useful thing.

This is a version including toc <http://www.prowiki.org/upload/HelmutLeitner/D%20Programming%20Language2.pdf> I prepared it using Acrobat 4.0 where a bookmarks/toc pane is created by my defaults. It looks identical although it's 115 KB smaller. -- Helmut Leitner leitner hls.via.at Graz, Austria www.hls-software.com

Yes. Give a date on the snapshot, and have a caveat about checking www.digitalmars.com/d/ for latest.

I think I'll try to install a Perl/wget/diff/changelog system as you suggested. But I'm short on time, so it may take 5-10 days to have it. Hope to connect it to the wiki, so anyone may access the changelog diffs. Could you hold any changes to the specs for a while? -- Helmut Leitner leitner hls.via.at Graz, Austria www.hls-software.com

It is truly too bad that .PDF doesn't have hyperlinks.  Even a navigable
table of contents and index would be terrific.

It does look nice, though.  Nice layout.  Nice organizational structure.

I will have a talk to our documentation people and see if they an help me. I think it is possible to convert an outlined Word-Document out of the box into a PDF with a TOC etc. using Adobe Acrobat 5.0.
