D - Wish list (not mine)

Walter, would it be possible to post a wishlist of things that you'd 
like added to Phobos?  Or things that you'd like to see in D in general. 
  That would give those of us with the time and the will to help some 
place to start in terms of building up the library.  Or is someone else 
handling the library?

One thing that he asked for back in January was a port of zlib. I spent some effort on it, enough to decide that I'd rather be having fun in my off time. :-)

I'll take a look at it. Maybe some of us in the community should sychronize our efforts at a C->D converter. I don't really know much about the projects that are out there, but I know that there is more than one. Mike, Pavel, care to talk a little about the programs that you're working with to convert C programs and headers into D? Evan

Sure, I did not know anyone else had started on, I assume you've read the doc I put online, I have about half of it working, hoped to post something this weekend but got sidetracked writing a GBA raycaster. (hence the RegExp problems) Mike.

Haven't yet, but I know that Pavel has talked about using one for some things. Anyway, let me know if you need some help. Something like that could be a real boon in quickly building up a robust and workable library. Evan

Something that could do FTPs would be cool if you're ambitious!

Should that wait on a native D sockets library? Evan

How about writing one of those too?
