I made some additions and corrections. The following are the major ones:

* The 'User Defined Attributes (UDA)' chapter

*  nogc

* foreach_reverse

* Formatted element output with %( and %)

* static this, static ~this, shared static this, and shared static ~this

As a reminder, the book is available as PDF, downloadable from the 
header of each chapter:

Super!

Huge thx for all the nice work btw.

Questions:

1. Does the book have been entirely translated then..?

2. Would you agree to configure a print version through 
Blurb.com? This way we could get a copy through amazon like ... 
tomorrow ;)

Here, the answer is "Yes" Ali's work is impressive.

I thank everyone for the nice words and the motivation. :)
 1. Does the book have been entirely translated then..?
Technically yes, but UDAs had to be added before I could call it complete and there are still missing pieces: - opDollar and the very recent multi-index opSlice - disable - Importing multiple modules of a package - This is an interesting one, which I think not many people know about: aliases for operator overloading. See the following push for an example: https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/dmd/pull/989/files - Table of contents for the pdf version - Book index - A number of other things
 2. Would you agree to configure a print version through Blurb.com? This

I think I am finally very close to doing that, but not today. :) Would you recommend considering at least some of Blurb.com's competitors as well? Who? Thank you, Ali

Right. Blurb has a number of pages limitation that would require a two volumes release of your book. :/ Lulu can make it to 740 pages. CreateSpace offers packages up to 828 pages. Both can distribute through Amazon. Prices are somewhat similar... I found this post interesting: http://www.cnet.com/news/self-publishing-a-book-25-things-you-need-to-know/ Otherwise did you contact any publisher? olivier

Page count can change simply by changing the font size. ;)

http://www.cnet.com/news/self-publishing-a-book-25-things-you-need-to-know/ Thank you. I had read that before and I have it bookmarked to be read again.

My only contact was in 2011 with Addison Wesley through Andrei. He had relayed my interest to his editor and had learned that "the field of general programming introduction is very crowded." They and other publishers may think differently as the book has become a little more like a language reference as well. As an update, I have already tied many loose ends. I am currently changing the operator overloading chapter to include the more proper multi-dimensional indexing and slicing that came with 2.066. Ali

Done. I divided array operator overloading (indexing and slicing) into two categories: 1) I updated the existing Operator Overloading chapter to cover only single-dimensional uses by - opIndex - opIndexAssign - opIndexUnary - opIndexOpAssign - opDollar - opSlice (I specifically took out the now-discouraged opSliceUnary, opSliceAssign, and opSliceOpAssign.) http://ddili.org/ders/d.en/operator_overloading.html (Chuck Allison will be mad at me because I used one of his programming assignments as an example there: Double-ended queue implemented in terms of two D slices. :) ) 2) I added the multi-dimensional operator overloading to the More Templates chapter under the section "Using templates in multi-dimensional operator overloading". (That is admittedly a curious place for it but multi-dimensional operator overloading uses tuple template parameters, which are introduced in that chapter.) There, I especially noted that the responsibility of opSlice is reduced to returning simply a Tuple!(size_t, size_t) or an equivalent type. (In case others have missed it, returning a slice representing all of the elements of a container is now the responsibility of opIndex that takes no parameters.) http://ddili.org/ders/d.en/templates_more.html Ali

there is a little bug: opSlice(size_t, size_t) description is: `collection[i, j]` shouldn't it be: `collection[i..j]`?

Thank you. There are others in the other table as well. Fix is coming soon. I have already fixed the template constaint bugs: Two of them should be if (dimension <= 1) (not 2). Would you like to send me your name so that I add it to the Acknowledgments section. (Otherwise ketmar is it. :) Ali

Yeah, I'd be the first in line to buy it as well! If you do consider publishing the book, do let us know before it happens so those of us who want to can go through a thorough review and let you know of any typo's or mistakes before it's set in stone (or on paper :P). I'd be glad to review it in-depth.

That is very kind of you. Everybody is always welcome to do so. :) I guess putting the sources on a git repo would help the reviewers. There was such a request at some point but I did not follow up on that. Ali
