D - D and Modula 2 / Modula 3

Has anyone compared D with modula 2 and/or modula  3

Modula 2/3 also does not require header files,
links with obj files
seems similar in syntax

Is there a relationship,  does D have Nickalus Wirth's compiler language
constructs as part of its philosophy and design?

best regards Trevor

No, there is no relationship other than coincidence. The last time I looked at M2 was around 1985 or so <g>.

I think you could compare D to any language and find simularities. These
just happen to be Modula's, although I would consider C/C++ to have closer
syntax.
