Gee..takes some real brains to come up with that one.
See, You learned a little about C++/C#/Java and think the
world must conform to what they say is correct and deny
everything that contradicts it rather than first seeing if you
are on the wrong side of the contradiction.
The fact is, there is no reason a module should be restricted
to see it's own classes private members.
Yeah that sounds fine. As long as you're willing to give up the
concept of class encapsulation.
And, as long as you are willing to have programmers use the
same syntax in D, as used in the 3 most widely used lanaguages
on the planet, but get very different semantics. It's a real
gotcha for those programmers.
It's sorta like a family who runs around pretending that they
can't see each others private parts. Sure, it sounds like a
good thing... until someone accidentally drops the towel and
the offended calls the cop on their brother and has him
arrested for breaking the law.
I'm not interested in your fanatasies. Keep them to yourself.
You should learn that your view of the world is very minute
and stop trying to fit the world in to your box. It's called
growing up. If you can't make a distinction between C++
encapsulation and D encapsulation you have far bigger problems
than you think.
I think the view of the 3 most widely used langauges on the
planet, is not something to dismiss so easily. D has what, 1000
programmers, maybe.. so I wonder whose world is really minute.
In any case, I'm not attacking D. I use it. I am just
questioning whether the different semantics for private, in D,
is really worth it.
You are a moron. That is the simple issue. That is why you get
confused easily and why you have trouble. I am stating this not
as a ad hominem but as the truth.
You lack the reasoning ability to realize that the world is
vastly different than what goes on in your pea sized brain(that
is a personal attack, unless one is using pea as a metaphor for
your lack of experience in the real world to teach you that
things don't always follow linear lines).
1. EVEN IF THE TOP 1 MILLION PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES ALL USED THE
EXACT SAME SYNTAX, SAME COMPILER, SAME FORUMS, SAME WHATEVER, it
means NOTHING! Truth isn't dictated by numbers. You surely are a
believer in Christianity or Islam? This type of "logic" is what
they typically use.
a. You'd see that all those 1M PL's are identical, so, in
fact, there is just 1. In fact, one could say inflate all
programming languages by saying there are N copies. e.g., D
actually has 1 Billion versions all identical. Don't believe me,
just make 1 Billion copies on your 4TB HD(ok, it will take about
10PB, so what). If you want, write a self-modifying compiler
that modifies the source a bit to change random non-breaking
changes. That way you actually have 1 Billion different copies...
just so you can be pedantic.
b. God didn't write "Classes must be self-encapsulated" in the
10 commandments... hence it is false to assume they must. After
all, if God wanted it, it would be so.
2. Being a lemming makes this very hard for you to grasp... but
ask yourself why Haskell is different, after all, it didn't
conform to C/C++... so it must be wrong too.
3. Why aren't people running around living in caves? After all,
the first humans started doing that! In fact, why don't all
humans live in the sea? After all, the real first humans did that.
Your logic is that the first dictates what the last should be...
and the only reason is because your pathetic brain can't grasp
the fact that there is no law that requires that. It's no
different than saying that the son of a blacksmith must be a
blacksmith, but again, your inability to abstract will find this
very hard to understand. Let me put it different, Is a son of a
bitch a bitch? Oh, does that make more sense? No? Oh well, I
The fact is, you are clueless on some level if you really think
you are right. The fact that you would waste your time and
everyone around you arguing some useless point that means nothing
is pointless... which goes to show that you are not that
intelligent. The goal, here, is to try to fix whatever bug is in
your brain that prevents you from becoming more intelligent. Only
time will tell if it works...
I'm sorry for wasting your time. I'm sure you have better things
to do like go argue why Hans Solo should have wore a blue vest
instead of a black one because it's the colors of his heraldry
and Lucas was wrong for putting him in black. Or maybe today it
you were going to argue that Harry Potters wand should be made
out of Ceder because all wizards use Ceder. Or maybe it is
