I find that we lack a way to search for ported C headers or D alternatives that
do the same. So I started a Wiki page here:
http://prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?CLibraryBindings

Not sure if it is useful there. I'd like to see dynamic pages on dlang.org in a
distant future, which make searching by category or compatibility easier.

Not completely OT A hidden page on D WIKI http://prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?PortingFromCxx written by Bill Baxter (and ahem.. m) This is D1 stuff, nevertheless it is a shame that this page including other C++ to D stuff is NOT part of Dlang... _Try to find this page form WIKI main_ But I gave up to see any sense in D development organization at all. Just want to say.

Yea, there's also a page about DMD's internals that's always been frustratingly difficult to find. I think the only way you've ever been able to get to it is through the index or a direct URL, and I can't even find it now.

I also have a lot of difficulty finding it. If you search "DMD Source Guide" it doesn't even show up in the first few pages of results. --047d7b343a9e4cb55104c615ceda Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1 On Mon, Jul 30, 2012 at 6:50 PM, Nick Sabalausky <span dir="ltr">&lt;<a href="mailto:SeeWebsiteToContactMe semitwist.com" target="_blank">SeeWebsiteToContactMe semitwist.com</a>&gt;</span> wrote:<br><div class="gmail_quote"> <blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="margin:0 0 0 .8ex;border-left:1px #ccc solid;padding-left:1ex"><div class="HOEnZb"><div class="h5"><br> </div></div>Yea, there&#39;s also a page about DMD&#39;s internals that&#39;s always been<br> frustratingly difficult to find.

There's also the Deimos project, which is D interfaces to popular C libraries. https://github.com/D-Programming-Deimos

Most of the projects on the list point to Deimos projects. -- /Jacob Carlborg

I have now written a simple web site the lists C bindings by category. It is
updated every day.
http://mleise.abcz8.com/d/bindings.php
Currently it only lists Deimos repositories and includes them even if they only
contain C headers. Oh and it is ugly.

You could make it output json, and someone else does the fancy html?

Maybe I'll make it a little more fancy, settle for a practical database table structure and then output JSON. -- Marco

I expect occasional downtimes. ;-) )
