D - How do I link with a library?

Greetings,

I'd like to congratulate D on being a spiffy language already, even without
the ideas you're talking about implementing!

So far, the only problem I can't figure out (but probably has a simple
solution) is how to link with libraries. I downloaded the D version of the
SDL library from the DedicateD website. But when I compile the source with
this command

dmd -Ic:\dm\include testbitmap.d
link testbitmap.obj

I think I need to pass some parameters to 'link' but I can't figure out
what.

Thanks for your help,
Ben

I think a better idea is to use the sc utility: dmd -Ic:\dm\include testbitmap.d sc testbitmap.obj SDL.lib SDL.lib is included in the archive you've downloaded from the site.
