Congratulations. I must say that I really like the cover design. Certainly it will stand out from the myriad of O'Reilly programming books -- the ones which have a white background and usually a picture of some animal on the cover. Of course it is no surprise seeing that there is a foreword written by Walter Bright but getting Scott Meyers to write one as well is not too bad. It would be an absolute scream though if it also featured a foreword by retard :-) Best wishes for great reviews and sales. Justin Johansson

But then Andrei would have had to publish the book through O'Reilly instead of Addison-Wesley so that the O'Reilly-trademarked white background and the usual picture theme (*** as mentioned above) could be used for the cover design. :-)

I've often wondered what kind of animal O'Reilly would use for D. That they would instead use a restrained Haskell programmer sputtering his disapproval... retard, apologies.

An interesting question which will no doubt solicit some interesting answers. btw, I'd just like to say that what's turned into a little skit/twist/joke is by no means intended by me to poke fun at, or to ridicule any person or persons named herein. I've mentioned previously on this ng that I quite enjoy reading the some of the controversial posts by same and as much as I'm sure I'll enjoy reading the TDPL book. So, in other words, I trust that retard will take no offense from my comments and nor should he/she as absolutely no offense is intended. Cheers Justin Johansson

I bet a straitjacket is 100% safer than the noose around your neck. :o) This time it isn't made of rope, it's a string, a .stringof to be precise :D Have fun with your (I'm too lazy to test how broken this is now, probably you get at least some extra parentheses): enum bar { a,b,c } template Tuple(T...) { alias T Tuple; } class Bar {} class Foo { bar b1; Bar b2; Tuple!(int,int) tuple; } pragma(msg, Foo.tupleof.stringof)

I admit to having wondered that for many languages. INTERCAL perhaps the most. ...Platypus? Tuatara? Marrella? -- Simen

Hum, I don't, to be honest. It looks complicated, hard to understand, even senseless, which is not the sort of impression you want to give for a programming language. :/ -- Bruno Medeiros - Software Engineer

"I don't think I'll try this language, because the picture on the front is complicated, therefore the language must be." Really? Really?! If someone's train of thought actually goes down that path, then they're a certified moron, and it doesn't matter if they don't like it. :]

Don't feel too bad, Amazon in the US is saying the same thing.

Thanks for your information. Now I also canceled on amazon and orderd on informit. They deliver faster and its *cheaper* BTW: I don't understand the difference of 2 month for the publishing. amazon.de: 28.Juli informit.com: 2.Juni (shipping: 3-7 workdays!!) greets Matthias
