About the D Language
What is D?
"D was conceived in December 1999 by "Walter Bright" as a successor to C and C++."
"D is a general purpose systems and applications programming language. It is a higher level language
than C++, but retains the ability to write high performance code and interface directly with the operating system API's and
with hardware. D is well suited to writing medium to large scale million line programs with
teams of developers. D is easy to learn, provides many capabilities to aid the programmer,
and is well suited to aggressive compiler optimization technology. D is not a scripting
language, nor an interpreted language. It doesn't come with a VM, a religion, or an overriding philosophy. It's a practical
language for practical programmers who need to get the job done quickly, reliably, and leave behind maintainable, easy to
D is the culmination of decades of experience implementing compilers for many diverse
languages, and attempting to construct large projects using those languages. D draws
inspiration from those other languages (most especially C++) and tempers it with experience and real world practicality."
