The alternative community developed runtime library Tango has a module for sys/stat.h. http://www.dsource.org/projects/tango/docs/current/tango.stdc.posix.sys.stat.html http://www.dsource.org/projects/tango/wiki/Download

For those who are interested in how you go about doing it or yourself sys/stat is a fairly simple example to use to describe the process :) So, have a look at the tango source itself: http://www.dsource.org/projects/tango/browser/trunk/tango/stdc/posix/sys/stat.d You'll see that in general if you want to access C functions in D you need to define them in a D module using "extern (C)". You need to define any structures they use, constant values they use, and either import definitions for types they use or define them yourself. You get all this information from the C headers, you can generally copy/paste into your D module and then get it working with often only minor changes. Regan Heath
