I am explaining this programming language to a friend of mine and I want to send
him the right info.  I see that our newsgroup is called digitalmars.D and in the
index.html it's called D.  On the examples directory is called d. I use d.  I
have seen Derek use D.  I have seen folks mix it up in the same post.  So, I now
ask: is it d or is it D?

thanks.

I'm almost certain the language is named "D".  Just like C is C.

However, that doesn't make people name files "blah.C", but rather 
"blah.c".  It is common practice among many to use lowercase in filenames.
