digitalmars.D - Factually inaccurate review of TDPL on Amazon

reply Andrei Alexandrescu <SeeWebsiteForEmail erdani.org> writes:
There's some odd review of TDPL on amazon.com that claims that (a) gdc 
only supports D1 and (b) dmd is "too expensive for students". Sigh.

I'd appreciate it if you guys commented in response to that post (as 
David Simcha did) and/or clicked the "report abuse" button. If enough 
clicks are gathered, Amazon will look into removing that review.

Amazon deleted the review following the feedback from this group. Thanks to all, and thanks Adrian for your appreciation. Andrei

C++ first appeared as C With Classes in 1979, and Modern C++ Design was written 22 years later. D first appeared in 1999, so we should expect Modern D Design in 2021. -- Simen
