I hope not. c.l.c.m is a moderated newsgroup and the discussion seems to be at a high level for the most part.

instead of depating about D against c++ i see merely big discussions about issues of c++ (copy constructor and all that, and why it isn''t the way people ment it to be and such blabla).

and teh most funny part is about the ~ as string concatenation.

first: people got it wrong
second: even if they got it wrong, does it mather? is it SO terrible to have ~ instead of + as in c++? no.

about the got it wrong. ~ is not a string concatenator, but a general dynamic array concatenator. such a generic operator doesn''t exist in c++ as there is no generic dynamic array type. there is in D, and the ~ for concatenating, or .. adding.. arrays together is great, as its clean and very readable.

anyways, a fun read for sure. and some good thoughts.


never new you could concatenate strings with such a ton of different operators:D
