I'm mainly a scripting language, .NET, and SQL programmer. I've been looking for a good programming language for Linux/BSD other than Python. I've surveyed the options and D appears to be a sane modern choice for me. (Thanks Ali Çehreli and others!)

The only hitch is that many of the projects and libraries I'm interested in using or maybe porting are mainly C based. (My overall C-fu is weak...) Should I review a good C book or tutorial before jumping in to fully learning D? Or should I just eschew any C exposure until I master D?

(As a side note, many of the C libraries I'm interested in seem to be confusing messes of header files and "organic" code. But who am I to judge?)

I would jump right into D and then veer off into C on a need to know basis. This link might be of interest:


Also, are you aware of the libraries at the DUB registry?

And finally, Chapter 9 of Mike Parker's "Learning D" has lots of info on libraries.
