I've included a shell script that we use in-house. Merely putting it in your $HOME/bin lets you use D programs as genuine shell scripts. And without the .d suffix. We've been using it for quite a while since I first showed it in this ng.

I guess I can implement backtrace into linux & gdc. But on Linux, we can get backtrace with gdb easily. So, is it needed?

Yes. Customers/Users do not always know how to use gdb and produce a backtrace, being able to do it ourselves is useful.
