I have to break off now and do some building work. You can find documentation and a zip file (currently it is Windows only, DMD2.026, and Phobos) at http://www.britseyeview.com/dcat/. It works with Apache2, and uses the AJP13 protocol like Tomcat.
Interesting. Just as I was thinking of creating a web app in D. What's the license?
Hmm, forgot about that stuff, BSD maybe - suggest one please.
By looking at the code, I've found a license. Not sure which license it is (looks a little BSD-like), but at least the terms are clear. Some (not all) modules start with this: * Copyright (C) 2007 Steve Teale * * This software is provided 'as-is', without any express or implied * warranty.

I had subsequently gone through the sources and added a BSD license, but now I have gone through them again, and put the zlib/libpng license back. I will post the modified zip today. This of course excludes the stuff that was modified from Eric Anderton's DDL work. I will attempt to contact Eric, and ask if he will allow the modified versions to be put under zlib/libpng. Is this a satisfactory approach within the D community?
