If you have a little short project that really doesn't fit into anything 
by it's self that you think people might find useful, contact me and we'll 
see about adding it.

Currently there is a hand full of modules:
-- a base class for use in CGI programs with an HTML version
-- a CGI search engine for searching in files on a local file system
-- a read only NNTP client
-- a template based parser generator

Sort of like a community parts bin? Sounds like a great idea to me. When I get around to cleaning up my discontinued projects and concepts, I'll happily contribute some modules. :) -- - EricAnderton at yahoo

Glad to hear. Fell free to put your stuff in SVN anytime you want.

This is a good idea for a project. I'm sure many people would like to share some code, but find it to big of a hassle to create a website (or even upload a file to their webspace). Hopefully, Scrapple will encourage more people to make their code available. Another option for people who want to simply share code (especially those with one-file projects) is to create a new page in the Tutorials wiki: http://www.dsource.org/projects/tutorials/wiki Anyone who is logged into dsource through the forums can add and edit the Trac wiki pages of the Tutorial project. With a little wiki formatting (begin with "{{{ (newline) #!d" and end with "}}}"), the code will even be syntax highlighted. Also, anyone can add the code to an appropriate category page, and everyone can search for code related a topic by using Trac's search function. Unfortunately, I'm sure some of the code in the Tutorials wiki only compiles with earlier versions of D (I'd love to have everything work with DMD 1.00 and/or GDC 0.21). I've been fixing them as I become aware of the problems, but I'll take some time for me to catch up. jcc7
