D - The Interface Saga

Walter has indeed been busy. The results of which can be seen in the
attached document.

Credit where credit is due: Walter is most certainly a formidable and
prolific developer and, perhaps more importantly, has clearly displayed (yet
again) that the D language is not a closed-shop specification.

The supporting compiler version is not yet released, and there are still
what one might describe as Interface 'bugs' (related to multiple layers of
Interface inheritance), but the missing runtime functionality is now all
there.

Way to go, Walter!

Egad! I'm far to cynical, opinionated, and self-absorbed to be a columnist ... Or, is that's what you meant? (that was meant to be comic irony! Please ... nobody take offence!)

No, I meant that the way you put words together sounds very similar to someone else that I have read. Phill. --- Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free. Checked by AVG anti-virus system (http://www.grisoft.com). Version: 6.0.655 / Virus Database: 420 - Release Date: 4/8/2004

I hope that "manifest" feature would be done quite soon. By the way this article looks like a article in journals. -- School, yet another nickname for anonymous. :D ;-D
