Did you mean "simple compared to C++"?

It's simple in both absolute terms and relative to C++ terms. It's not as simple as Java's.


I remember having to report/fix a LOT of
bugs in the language specification and explore the DMD front end source code to
get to where I am now.

True, but there have been very few bugs in the lexer/parser itself. My laziness in being pedantically correct in writing the specification is an orthogonal issue.
