I got it from amazon for kindle for $0.99. http://www.amazon.com/D-Programming-Language-Specification-ebook/dp/B005CCQPKK/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1353422974&sr=1-1&keywords=d+programming+language+specification If you don't have a kindle you could still read with amazon cloud reader - but this is not great because no search or copy/paste. However, you can download and convert the amazon format to mobi and probably pdf with calibre which is a great tool. Thanks Dan

So the D Language Spec version 2 is only in Kindle format, and not in PDF or HTML anyplace it can be downloaded ?

Yes... Not good ! I'm interested in "D". Still. Working on. I bought the Alexandrescu book, fine. I am always ok to buy good books. But why not to provide, in some way, references, in the classical "smart Unix/FSF... way" ?? I think it's not a good way. Not good for "promoting" a good language. In fact, as an old Unix aficionado, often, for some topics, if I cannot get source + doc, the tool goes away... And sure I'm not alone. Have you seen the case for "go". Couldn't find any doc, must be online for reference !
