Runs on Windows (x86), Linux (x86, 86_64), OS X (x86, x86_64) and FreeBSD (x86, x86_64). The compiler frontend is dual licensed under GPL/Artistic, the backend under a single-user non-redistribution source-available license. The standard and runtime libraries are Boost licensed.

Sounds good. Is there an up-todate "Getting started with "D programming"? What to download, and where to install it. Also, is there a Visual GUI IDE? I have codeBlocks and GCC installed. Can D use wxWidgets? Evidently, C++ can use wxWidgets, but "C" can not. Which is why I am here. Thanks for your helps...vm

Thanks for the links. Lots of good info, I am a bit overwhelmed. I downloaded dinstaller.exe for windows using this guideline: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSugYSC5hrE&feature=related C:\D Where/how can I tell exactly what is installed? DMG? GTK? QT? But I can't figure out how to get it going. The first thing I would like to do: 1) Run the "hello world" program. and 2) I want to install a Visual GUI IDE (drag and drop Visual Controls). Can I get some recommendations on What Visual IDEs people are using? Am I using the right term "Visual GUI IDE" ? Maybe I should start a new Topic for this? Thanks...Vernon
