Thank you for mentioning the Lubeck package, I did not know
about it and it looks very interesting.
The article is exploratory, I also assume that the person
reading it is busy. I tend to gravitate towards Phobos because
its there - its the standard library and comes with D, its easy
to write code with it and easy for a reader to access. If I
write an article with code I want it to be likely that:
1. Anyone can download and run the code immediately and it will
2. If someone sees the article in 6 months or 3 years and
downloads the code it will work.
3. The reader will be able to look up all the functions I have
used in the D website - makes it very easy for learners.
We supports Mir related posts.
At this stage the numerical computing ecosystem in D is not
mature and could change drastically. I added a link to the Mir
library at the top because I wanted people to be aware of the
I ported few large complex Matlab scripts using Lubeck and
Mir-Algorithm (closed source).
It works perfectly and results are the same as Matlab original!
All functions from Lubeck was used in this work.
Mir Algorithm has over then 2K downloads, and its downloads rates
The article is more about GLM in D than performance but I can
point to the Lubeck package in the article and mention your
observation on the allocations - making it clearer upfront.
As I said in the previous reply, I did learn a lot from writing
the article and I think the performance observation is highly
relevant for building a GLM package in D.
