I did. I have a few 'simple' C++ like classes like "vector" (C++-like) DEVector (double ended version - empty space and elements can be on either end), and priority queue (simple heap version). Would these be interesting as a part of the library? If so, do I start a dsource project, email them somewhere, etc? Is there a general rule for this? I'm sure I'm not the only one to write up these sorts of things. Kevin

I would recommend starting a dsource project. Get Brad to create a project space for you etc... I did this for Build and its been pretty easy to use, including the SVN stuff. -- Derek Melbourne, Australia 18/04/2005 1:31:00 PM

Okay - I'll take a few days to flesh out/clean up what I have now and create a project in a few days. Goal: 'mostly drop-in' replacements for porting of C++ code, plus maybe a few D-ish versions of the same functionality. Kevin

He must be a fan of D, then : ) Your army is growing. Of course, it is kind of funny seeing a huge leauge of unregistered posters suddenly saying good things about D. I/we have been accused of being paid to promote it, lol. Since then I have tried to concentrate on both strengths/weaknesses. Obligatory Field of Dreams quote, "If you build it, they will come."

I mentioned it to my CS professor, Timothy Budd, and he said he'd take a look at it, since he likes to learn a new language every year :) Out of curiousity, has anyone heard of him before? I was just wondering because although he's a professor here at Oregon State, he has also written a whole bunch of programming books. -- -PIB -- "C++ also supports the notion of *friends*: cooperative classes that are permitted to see each other's private parts." - Grady Booch

Seems he's a prolific author, but none of the books have made it to the top 10 on Amazon.

Probably has something to do with the fact that most of them were either written before Amazon was around, or are text books, mainly used in conjunction with a CS course, which means the majority of them are probably bought through school book stores. -- -PIB -- "C++ also supports the notion of *friends*: cooperative classes that are permitted to see each other's private parts." - Grady Booch

Name sounds familiar .... computer algorithms? Seems like I looked at one of his books when I was trying to figure out "skip lists" or "red-black trees" or something like that.
