Overview — D Programming Language
« on: May 13, 2007, 12:07:53 PM »
[via Bob Sutor's Open Blog]:
________________________________________________
Overview — D Programming Language — Digital Mars
D is a general purpose systems and applications programming language. It is a higher level language than C++, but retains the ability to write high performance code and interface directly with the operating system API’s and with hardware.

/More/
D is well suited to writing medium to large scale million line programs with teams of developers. D is easy to learn, provides many capabilities to aid the programmer, and is well suited to aggressive compiler optimization technology.... D is not a scripting language, nor an interpreted language. It doesn't come with a VM, a religion, or an overriding philosophy. It's a practical language for practical programmers who need to get the job done quickly, reliably, and leave behind maintainable, easy to understand code.... D is the culmination of decades of experience implementing compilers for many diverse languages, and attempting to construct large projects using those languages. D draws inspiration from those other languages (most especially C++) and tempers it with experience and real world practicality.

D is nothing new for me. I think D is a great coding-invention.
I remarked, that the language-comparison-table showing the features and differences to c, c++, c# and java has been cut-down: http://www.digitalma...om/d/comparison.html
If you like to see the real full comparison, take a look here: :D http://web.archive.o...om/d/comparison.html
