D - What is neede for linux?

Hi,

I am somewhat insecure what I need to work with D under Linux. The homepage
says,
that the dli package of Burton Radons is the Linux port, but this seem to be
more than one year old. 
So where can I find an actual Linux version and libs? 
What is dmd, what is phobos?

Sorry, if these are stupid questions.

True. Link to DLI should be scrapped from the D intoduction page.

Windows version zip also contains the linux version. Besides it will want your GCC tools handy. DMD is DigitalMars D compiler. Phobos is a (somewhat minimalistic and not fleshed out) standard library for D, which is distributed with DMD in the same zip.

Why, these are inconsistencies of documentation. -eye

That shows how well Mr. Bill Gates is doing is job. What you want to say is that the dmd.zip contains both versions: windows and linux. Ant
