 Hi all,
 I have set up some benchmarks for dmd, ldc and gdc at 
 There are currently only 6 tests all from 
 http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/gp4/d.php. My knowledge of phobos is 
 not great enough to port the others to tango (I've chosen tango as ldc 
 does not support phobos currently, so it make sense to choose tango as 
 all compilers support it). If you would like to contribute new tests or 
 improve on the current ones let me know and I'll include them next time 
 I run them.
 All source code can be found at 
 Let me know if you have any ideas for how I can improve the benchmarks, 
 I currently plan to add compile times, size of the final executable and 
 memory usage (if anyone knows an easy way to get the memory usage of a 
 process in D, let me know :D).

You could just use the benchmarks game measurement scripts - http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/u32q/faq.php#measurementscripts They already report the time to complete all the MAKE actions - it wouldn't be difficult to break that out to show compile time. They already sample memory use, and record cpu time, elapsed time, source size - it wouldn't be difficult to get the executable size. But if you're having fun writing a measurement program... ;-)
