How about some humorous error messages for DMD? Similar to those that

Or the error messages could be stored in an XML file so anyone could

p.s. this is my first post here, hopefully not my last. :) As far as I 
can tell, D is looking pretty nice for me to switch start using :)
And hopefully it doesn't matter that this is pretty off topic since this 
post was pretty off topic to begin with.

p.p.s. I can also ramble a bit sometimes, in case you didn't notice.

The error messages could contain an url to the D wiki where everyone can make comments and place tips for others receiving this error. Tijn p.s. My first post too. :-D

The problem is that you need two equal signs instead of one.

Yeah, but the result of (a = b) is the type of a. See http://www.digitalmars.com/d/expression.html#AssignExpression -Sebastian
