digitalmars.D - PDF Snapshot of the D Specification

I've created a new PDF snapshot of the D Specification (as of DMD 0.109).

It weighs in at 1.69 MB. I've posted it at two locations: D Lab and 
Wiki4D. It's not perfect by any means, but my main concern with it is 
that some of the hyperlinks may not work.

I did a similar Makefile a while back, to download and build a pdf/zip : http://www.algonet.se/~afb/d/SPECIFICATION.zip (requires some GNU tools) 668K http://www.algonet.se/~afb/d/d.pdf (created with "htmldoc") 440K http://www.algonet.se/~afb/d/d.zip (converted to XHTML 1.0) I think all the D logos you included at the end weighs it down perhaps ? (or maybe OpenOffice can't create compressed PDF files, or something ?) The main problem with the "specification" is that it's a website, and not really a stand-alone document ? I tried using the "book" conversion, but it needs some editing before that will work OK... The old PDF (intro.pdf) has a much nicer layout, but requires work to keep up-to-date and an outdated specification isn't much use ? The automated version (above) can be kept automatically updated. --anders

I knew my PDF was larger than what other people have done, but I don't really know why. Maybe OpenOffice.org is doing something wrong. I'm sure the images don't help. Maybe I'll try leaving the Links page off and see what size it is. At least the "Bookmarks" tab is created when I'm using the development version (1.9.65) of OOo.

Oh, that reminds me. I meant to include page numbers. Oh, well, I'll try to remember that if I do this again.

Right. Due to the automated way that I produced this version, I can produce an updated version fairly easily.
