If there isn't anything in that list (DAllegro, Bud, DCode) that you=20

it's available for download on the site:

Also, I changed the downloads to mod_proxy pass through to a LigHTTPd=20
server, so downloads won't block page views.  It will also allow for an=20
infinite number of simultaneous downloads.  Well, lighty limits to 20K=20
people, but for all practical purposes it might as well be infinite.

I hope you find it useful!

Cool thanks. It runs good under wine, still have to setup all paths though
and test how dsss operates. Dcode works perfectly. 

I still think tango docs would be useful and have found that dil can
generate very nice documentation: http://code.google.com/p/dil/

The tarball of tango doc in html is about 800 kb, but I'm sure a more
spartan kind of doc can be made that is much smaller.

This is actually a problem for me. The install won't finish because I don't have my windows installed under C:\Windows\System32, Its in D:\win2\System32. There are various ways to get windows system32 path. The installer tool your using should have some special path for it. -Joel

Of course the work around I used was simply to create those folders and then copy the files across. -Joel

Just having an installer like this is a huge step forward. I wish Walter would put a link to it in his download section. I wonder how many people give up using DMD just because they see a zip file on the website? -Joel

Good grief! I rationalized not looking up the docs for the System32 location by assuming that there aren't many people who install to locations other than C:\Windows\system32. Stoopid me. Oh well... Murphy's law. The moment I stop assuming the worst, the worst will happen. In this case, the worst possible is that someone installed to somewhere other than C:\Windows\System32. I'll make a new installer when I get back home to my build machine.

Yeah, the main reason I have windows installed there is that it's like the 7th time I've had to re-install it. So you can blame MS.

I like the simplicity of DCode for just trying small programs out. The only real thing that bugs me with it is that it doesn't auto save when I press F7. -Joel
