D - Library for D

Dear D Developers,

I too think that D is a beautiful language. But the language is also very young.
This comes with advantages such as new techniques (GC, DBC, Threading) but also
with a lot of disadvantages.

Well those disadvantages must be eliminated, that's why I had a thought about
creating a Library such as "STL" for C++ or the "java package" for JAVA for the
D language.

I do not know about how the other D fans think about this, but I think that the
D language is stable enough to start implementing such a thing. Please let met
know how you think about this.

Kind regards,
Sjoerd van Leent

Yes, start implementing it! It also will be a great way to flush out any shortcomings in D.

I'm also a D fan and I agree with you (need, stability). It would be great to have such a library. Currently there is enormous energy in the D community and I think things can develope quickly. If I can help you in any way, I'd be happy to do so. -- Helmut Leitner leitner hls.via.at Graz, Austria www.hls-software.com
