D and Tango

April 8th, 2009 No comments

The other day, I took another look at Tango, for D.

For those not initiated, Tango is a replacement library for the Digital Mars D programming language. It operates differently from the standard Phobos in terms of architecture, ethos and implementation style.

Having previously looked at it, my initial reaction was “Hmmm, seems silly to have implemented this, it doesn’t seem worth the effort to implement a second standard library”. I decided the other day to take another look at the project to try and understand it further.

Having read more about it, and tried to understand further, I can only say: “Wow”. It provides the langauge with the library to “do stuff” no simply a library with which to “implement stuff”.

I have an idea to resurrect my old FTPro software, and I’m now thinking that this would be a great backbone to develop this with. My only major hurdle to this at the moment is rebuilding my laptop….
