As I understand it, you are executing dmd in the background to repl.
Simple and clever :D


But then how is it saving context?

It's using shared libraries to do so. Each new deck/stmt/expr is compiled in a shared library. This library imports and links against all previous libraries to make the context available. I still need to implement a few rewrites, i.e. `auto var = val;` should become `typeof(val) var; shared static this() { var = val; }` too support runtime initialization.
