EvilOne distribute it on DedicateD. http://int19h.tamb.ru/files.html. But his version is a bit old. I modified it (and OpenGL module). http://user.ecc.u-tokyo.ac.jp/~s31552/wp/d/porting.html This version avoids DMD-0.78's bug and can compile on Linux, and fix some bugs. I wanted EvilOne to distribute, but I couldn't contact him. (His address may be not valid now.) Anybody knows how to contact him? Or EvilOne, if you read this post, please reply to me. ------------------ shinichiro.h

I'm pretty sure that Pavel Minayev (a/k/a EvilOne) isn't interested in D anymore. He started talking about a language he was designing called Ael (http://www.smartgroups.com/groups/ael-lang) around when he left D. That project very well may be abandoned (the last post on that message board is 28 Feb 2003), but that's the last I heard directly from him. Someone tracked him on IRC or IM or something maybe around 6 months ago and they posted a conversation with him to this newsgroup. (I don't call who it was in particular.) If my memory's correct, he wished us well, but stated he wasn't interested in D anymore. I think the fact that his website hasn't even been updated to inform the viewer that the material won't compile in recent versions of DMD implies that he'd rather do other things that program in D. Since his SDL port was released as GPL, you don't need any kind of permission from him to distribute your corrections. But I guess your goal is for him to update his file with your file. It's possible he doesn't even have access to the website anymore, but he may have just got tired of updating it. If you do happen to make contact with him, you might mention that I've updated d2html (available at http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/) and not only does it compile with DMD 0.78, but it also handles nested comments and pretty everything I've thrown at it recently. I'm really glad his code was available since I would have had to develop the concept from scratch otherwise. -- Justin http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/

I took a trip down memory lane and found some more links to Pavel "EvilOne" Minayev. Pavel's last post (13 Sep 2002): D/8427 The post mentioning anyone actually talking to Pavel about D (posted 03 Sep 2003): D/16446 He would clearly welcome us to use his code (that's good because part of it is in Phobos: std.streams). -- Justin http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/

Thank you for your very kind clarification. I got the picture. I wanted him to distribute SDL and OpenGL for D because I thought his website is well known as these porting libraries distributor. But now I understand we cannot expect his active update. (But D language and DMD compiler are updating day by day) So, according your suggestion, I'll continue to distribute and update these packages. Thanks. ------------------ shinichiro.h
