Fundamentally DMD as a library is a front-end. Jitting is to the backend side. You'll be able to lex and parse the source to get an AST, to perform the semantic passes on this AST and that's all.

Then to run this code you would need to make an AST visitor that will generate the binary code to execute. Even using a specialized library with jitting abilities, such as LLVM-d [1] or libfirm-d [2], this would be *quite* a journey.

Thank you. That's enough to get me started tinkering!
