I set up a few sections on the Wiki4D about porting to D from various 
languages.  I would like to encourage anyone who has advice to D to add 
to the appropriate pages:

http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?PortingOverview

And if the appropriate page doesn't exist (ObjC or Fortran or whatnot), 
just add it.  It's a wiki!

I plan to add more to the C++ page, but I probably won't touch the 
others any further (except maybe to make minor edits to what others write).

I could do soemthing on C++ to Java, though I'm not sure how relevant that would be ;-P.

Sure! Then the C++ to D porting section can be just one line: "See C++ to Java section and then Java to D section". Or not. :-P --bb

Incredibele :) Seriously, advice regarding porting from major languages to D is indeed a win! -------------------------------------------------------------------------- .. like to suggest to use the C++ to D stuff as Draft, because it is a systematic approach. Just my opinion Bjoern

I have added a few lines to the C++ section : *Windows specific Issues*. Would be nice if somebody is willing to verify. You'll find it at http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?PortingFromCxx#section27 Thanks B
