D - Questions about D

Hi, I use Java for deploying a web server, and wanted to
test out D.  A few questions:

1) Are there tools to translate Java to D?

2) Is there a place where people contribute libraries?

3) Is there anything like a servlet in D?  If I write a spec
for this, is it posible to contribute it to the standard
library?

4) Apart from the "urlread" library that I saw somewhere,
are there any other network oriented libraries?

Cheers,

grep? :) No, nothing really. I think the difference is so minor, that some simple regexp magic would do most of it... And D seems to be the best thinkable language to write it in. :)
2) Is there a place where people contribute libraries?

Nope. Someone is working on a Sourceforge-like global repository. For now, Helmut's WIKI holds some links. http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?FrontPage

Standard library group is being created right now. In principle, contributions are welcomed, but it's not already clear what the standard library would look like in general. It may very well be that GUI, networking, and so on, will not be parts of the core library, but available separately. Of course, with time they shall also have some kind of "standard" status...

I gave up trying to port libcurl, but I might try again, or if someone else wants to try I have a simple D script that will sort-of convert it. C "Ilya Minkov" <Ilya_member pathlink.com> wrote in message news:bpg3oh$hvn$1 digitaldaemon.com...
