digitalmars.D - Libs matters

reply bearophile <bearophileHUGS lycos.com> writes:
My libs (I'm now finishing using ArrayBuilder everywhere it gives a gain)
aren't a third lib alternative to Phobos and Tango, they run on D1 Phobos,
about all of what they contain is absent from D1 Phobos, and ~98% of what they
contain is absent from D2 Phobos, so they are meant to complement Phobos, they
often contain patches to missing things in the D language, that I really hope
will become useless, so I can remove them (for example I have had to write the
ArrayBuilder, a StructCmp(), a equal() to test equality of AAs and arrays of
static arrays, a printing function to replace/improve the limited/bad
writefln/writef, etc etc). The only partially duplicated things are few of the
ones into the std.algorithm of Phobos, but even that module isn't much
duplicated, because they are based on a quite different philosophy.

So if Walter is interested I can write a long list that explains the contents
and implementations of the modules of my libs (and/or he can just take a look
at the html documentation and code), so he can tell me if there are
modules/chunks of them he is willing to see copied into Phobos of D1/D2 (the
license isn't a problem, at the moment most of the code has a Python license,
and I can change it to make it suitable for Phobos). The more parts he wants to
copy, then more things I can remove from them. They are also a way to let
practical usage show where D1 itself lacks things.

Where's the introduction? and the source code base? -- 使用 Opera 革命性的电子邮件客户程序: http://www.opera.com/mail/

At the beginning of the 'func' module, the main one, so you can find it at the start of its html documentation.
 and the source code base?

I don't understand. Bye, bearophile

He was looking for the floowing link, I think: http://www.fantascienza.net/leonardo/so/libs_d.zip

Thanks! It'd be great if you could post here a list of the modules and a 
brief summary of what each is.
