On Friday (Sept. 10), Google/The University of Waterloo is going to open up registration for the next Google AI Challenge. Right now they are accepting "starter packages" for any language with a free compiler that can run on Ubuntu 8.04 (what their server runs), which means dmd is a candidate. I have already gotten a sort-of thumbs up from the contest organizer on getting them to host D as a language, and this evening I put together a starter package. However, I am still very much a novice with D, so I was hoping some of you experts could take a look at the code and give some suggestions, particularly regarding performance enhancements. Each bot is allowed 1 second of calculation time per turn, and doing file IO haphazardly like I do is probably eating up a lot of that time. The files in question are the ones ending in .d; everything else just behind the scenes stuff that doesn't change.  http://ai-contest.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=423  http://bitbucket.org/Queue29/d_starter_package/src Seth Hoenig seth.a.hoenig gmail.com
