Well actually in D the meanings above are not quite accurate. In D the meanings are ... Private: Accessible to code in the same module. Protected: Accessible to code in the same module and from classes derived from the protected class. (Only applies to classes). Public: Accessible to code in any module. Package: Accessible to code in any module within the same package, which means in the same directory. Export: Accessible to code in other applications. -- Derek Parnell Melbourne, Australia skype: derek.j.parnell
