In the future, I intend to have it written by Saturday for a weekend release, so if you want something to appear this week, please try to get it to by before then.

Fantastic inititive Adam, thanks for donating your time for this.

An issue I have tho:

// classes are reference types, so they must be
// initialized. "MyClass c;", unlike in C++, would
// leave c as null, causing a segfault when you try
// to use it.

That is not really true, is it? In C++ "MyClass c;" is actually THE way to instantiate objects. I know you meant MyClass* but as it is now it is just plain incorrect.
Eh.. what exactly is incorrect? In C++ "MyClass c;" stack-allocates the class assuming the default constructor is there (unless of course this is a member declaration in an object that's static or heap-allocated). In D it doesn't, it leaves you with an unitialized reference type.


You are right, I missunderstood, I thought he meant that this construct would leave c null in C++. My bad, please disregard.
