D is a pragmatic language aimed toward writing fast code, fast.
Garbage collection has proved to be a smashing success in the
industry, providing productivity and memory-safety to
programmers of all skill levels. D's GC implementation follows
in the footsteps of industry giants without compromising
expert's ability to tweak even further.
That's what we should be saying every single time someone
mentions GC. Including it was the RIGHT DECISION and we should
Yes, absolutely! It's the reason I chose to start writing
programs in D, because I had a background in C and Java, and
wanted a fast, compiled language that would take care of the
details for me. You can write programs quickly, and it's quick
enough when running them, and can of course be tuned further
through managing allocations/collections of the GC etc.
