DVM just takes the argument you give it, in this case 2.066.
Then it prepends "dmd." and appends ".zip" forming something
Then it prepends "ftp://ftp.digitalmars.com/" to that filename.
If there is a file matching that name in the Digital Mars FTP
it will work. As you can see, there is no file named
"dmd.2.066.zip", so you must have used "2.066.0".
Chances are I did, yeah. It's hard to remember later what I typed
exactly once the shell is closed. Would there be a way to
download the latest version by default, if the user types
"install 2.066" or just "install [dmd]"? If there isn't, what
could be done on the dmd side of things to facilitate this? DVM
is a pretty handy tool, but it still has some rough edges. I
think it could one day be part of a D Development Framework
(DDF). Please keep it up.
If you've seen this mistake several times, maybe it would be
point it out under "Usage". And maybe having/trying more than
would be good too, if it makes sense for DVM.
There is no mirror, as far as I know.
