I was looking through the latest Linux Format Magazine, (June 2007, LXF93) and it had an article on th D programming language. I had read some things about D before, but now it seems further along in development. It has built in garbage collection, is compatible with C system calls, et al. Has anyone considered, tried, done a version of Ruby in D to see how it could stack up with using C as the foundation of Ruby. For all you CS, or thesis looking students, this would look like something of at least an academic interest.

Yeah!! seems like a great idea. Actually there's no such thing. I've been programming on D since a year ago. Never heard too much about Ruby-D integration. 2007/5/30, jzakiya <email@example.com>: > could stack up with using C as the foundation of Ruby. > > For all you CS, or thesis looking students, this would look like > something > of at least an academic interest. > > > -- Saludos cordiales, Ing.

Since D is supposed to be link compatible with C, perhaps it would be trivial to adapt the existing C binding? That'd be sweet...
