It might be a good idea to mention the term 'anonymous delegates' in the 
docs so the C#2.0 crowd doesn't think they are missing from D.

I guess it doesn't actually come out and say this in the spec, but I think it gets pretty close: http://www.digitalmars.com/d/function.html#closures I agree that we need more comprehensive documentation. That's why I've been working on a tutorial: http://www.dsource.org/tutorials/ -- Justin (a/k/a jcc7) http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/

The tricky business for me was getting the syntax right and that wasn't in the docs. What made it worse is that when I was trying random combinations to guess the syntax, I forgot the semi-colon at the end which didn't help things any.

Yes, I agree. I don't know how much of these details Walter plans to put in the spec, but obviously more info is better for those of us trying to program in D. I've just added these examples to the dsource tutorial project: http://www.dsource.org/tutorials/index.php?show_example=77 http://www.dsource.org/tutorials/index.php?show_example=76 (I also discovered that "fp = foo;" should be "fp = &foo;", so I fixed the Wiki4D. I'd fix the original at DWiki, too, but that server's down again.) -- Justin (a/k/a jcc7) http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/
