digitalmars.D - Size does matter: TDPL reaches the size of Modern C++ Design

Modern C++ Design has 323 pages including index. I'm glad to report that 
  just about now TDPL has reached the same size. Let's hope the quality 
of TDPL is better!

I wish I could mark this anniversary with another free sample chapter, 
but my publisher wouldn't allow it.

Better to respect the will of the publisher. But I am probably going to buy the printed version even if you first give me the whole electronic edition for free :o) Bye, bearophile

When will the current draft be published on Safari's Rough Cuts. I spent 22$ per month only for this book.

In that case I'd be _very_ grateful if you complained to them and asked for a refund for the time you didn't have access to the draft. I am conscientiously sending them updates (recently on Oct 9 and Oct 16, each time with a full new chapter), but they are upgrading their site to an up-and-coming new version of Safari for a long time now. If they keep on being as professional as they seem to have been so far, the blessed draft will be posted after the book is published. Andrei

Nice read. So it seems array.length += foo; is going to end up working somehow. If it's going to be by property expression rewriting, then I hope you guys are either OK with waiting for me or are not bothering to wait for me. I feel kinda bad that I haven't made that patch already. That and your final draft deadline is Nov. 9. I've been distracted by working feverishly to get a game of mine submitted in the IGF and IGC game competitions, and somehow I need to get a job too. When the game is submitted though, property expression rewriting will take second place only to job search, which means I'll probably have time for it. Looks like we get value-type static arrays too. Awesome. That's some sexy code there ;)

Thanks -- and good luck with the submissions and job search. Andrei
