I mean, if someone wants to have fun, go ahead, but putting
effort on that where there are so many places that are more
put the effort on seems a bit silly.
Walter taking 2 weeks to do something comparable to what the
clang and gcc guys have done over many years, serves as massive
advertising for D.
Maybe, but sober observers will realize that Walter could
probably have done something similar in C++. That doesn't negate
your point though, that it's a good ad for D.
Also, here we now have an entire project written by the man
himself. That should serve as required reading for anybody who
wants to learn how to code in the latest D.
I made a first pass through. I notice that almost every 'alias'
is of the form
alias existing_name new_name;
I thought that in the latest D the alias syntax was
alias new_name = existing_name;
Should I be following Walter's lead with respect to alias?
