digitalmars.D.dtl - What do you want for DTL 0.2

As I've got very limited time at the moment, but intend to keep up the momentum
with DTL now it's rolling, I wanted to
canvas opinion on what you would all like to see for DTL 0.2, which I hope to
release sometime next week. The options
are:

- More comprehensive examples using current containers
- Documentation of the current containers (via Doxygen)
- D-ising the syntax (i.e. collect_with => collectWith. etc.) of the current
containers
- A first attempt at "The Spirit of DTL" document, so everyone can grok my
vision (or carp on about it.<g>)
- Set template being implemented
- Parameterised interfaces (currently looks like I've a linker bug, but Walter
says he'll lend a hand, so it's doable)
- Propagating composable transformations to all current containers

- or any other things I've not thought of.

Remembering I'm a little tight right now, please put them in prioritised order
if you make multiple
requests/suggestions.

Cheers

Always good to have but I think most are intelligent enough to realize how to use collections.
 - D-ising the syntax (i.e. collect_with => collectWith. etc.) of the current
containers

Couldn't we, um, do that for you? If people bitch about something, they should at least try to do something about it, you know, by themselves. How hard can it be...

I grok that.

Done! I should be uploading DTL 0.2 in the next couple of days.

I agree. At first glance, I thought it meant what Python calls a filter. (what DTL calls select(), I think: Iterate over only those elements which satisfy some condition) I think 'transform' or 'apply' would probably make more sense. -- andy

+1 vote for transform (but I already said that before :)

Not (yet) done. ;) I'll be uploading 0.2 in next day or so

I think this "elderly newbie" may have misposted. I came across 'glark' while looking up the meaning of 'grok'.

You really should read "Stranger in a Strange World." It is a really good book
that deals with 
religion, sense of self, and other things. Before I read it, I started thinking
of what if all the 
religions were correct and if all the religions had a place in heaven or if we
humans created our 
own place in the after life. Well, it wasn't that sorted out but after reading
the book, the 
solution of what I was thinking about at the time became clear. I highly doubt
the writer actually 
believes in his ideology. It is really interesting in the amount of ideas in
it. I can't say I 
understand or grok everything in the book but it makes you think long after you
read it. Changes 
your perspective on somethings and maybe opens your mind to other ideas. Could
debate and talk it 
about forever but it has been a long time since I have read it (about two
years).

In the book, it lists different literal meanings and I was sure one of them was
"to eat". It was 
listed on Dictionary.com that it is literally, "To drink," I don't know where
it is in the text so 
I'm not going to search for it on if I'm right or wrong. Just means to
understand something to the 
fullest or ponder some topic to comprehension.

Fascinating .. I've tended to be more of an engineer that a scientist. Have you have further thoughts on those kind of spiritual matters? Getting closer to being able to "grok" everything? :-) Perhaps continue this thread offline? Lynn Allan l_d_allan adelphia.net
