Hey, this is nothing to do with me. I happen to come across it and just started helping out. The site was designed and written by Markus Dangl and friends. I guess you should press the Login button and follow the prompts. Once you are registered you should read the wiki Tutorial, wiki Reference and Style guide then just pick something you are comfortable with and go for it. That's all did. -- Derek Parnell Melbourne, Australia http://www.dsource.org/projects/build v2.06 is now available. 04/May/2005 7/05/2005 1:04:32 AM

I'm just curious as too why this approach (i.e. manually creating 
documentation separate from the source code) was chosen over generating 
documentation from the sources? For example, using Doxygen, DoxyS or 
some other similar tool.

My guess is that the people in control of the source code (i.e. Walter) are not inserting *enough* documentation text into the source code, and thus a supplemental documentation is required. For example, the stuff being produced at this wiki site contains a lot of tutorial-oriented documentation with lots of examples. That is not the type of docs typically included into source code. -- Derek Parnell Melbourne, Australia 7/05/2005 4:29:53 AM

What exactly is the point of this wiki? (a) to be an unofficial D manual? (b) to replace the official D documentation? (c) to work on improving the official D documentation? If (a), then Walter could be a big helping hand by getting the spec cleaned up. http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=677 Stewart.
