New to D? Not sure how to get started?
The official D site can be found over at Digital Mars D,
where you can find the DMD compiler,
D language specification,
standard library (Phobos) documentation,
For tutorials and beginner help, you can check out the tutorial hosted here,
the D specification,
and the many pages of the D wiki.
There is also a new book The D Programming Language based on D 2.0, and a Tango book Learn to Tango with D.
Your compiler download should also come with a samples directory with example source code.
Some existing D code may fail to compile as it may be for D 1.0, or may have been written while D 2.0 was still evolving; be sure to verify versions.
If you're out for some D source code and libraries,
check out the fine selection here at
using the left menu,
there's a lot of projects hosted on dsource.org,
and the D wiki has library
and GUI library lists.
You can also browse the standard library source code; it's open source and comes with your

Hi, I'm writing this to make it official, dprogramming.com will no longer have any updates.
I'll be archiving the content and leaving it up as long as possible for historical reasons.
dprogramming.com was the home of some of my D projects. It was started so long ago when the web was a different place and I was still fairly new to the game.
D was once an obsession and pleasure of mine, but I've since moved on. The D community is very smart and I wish them the best. I certainly have learned a lot from them.
Since I'm no longer using D, the languages that have my interest at the moment are Lua and Rust.
To make it clear and allow code forking, I hereby release DFL and Entice Designer source code under dual licenses: boost and/or zlib/libpng, for the versions which were released on dprogramming.com. Please see the GUI Libraries
wiki page for DFL forks.
