In order to help you achieve the dream of a fully realized book, I have submitted an erratum to the book's web page at Apress.  On page 5, line 12 the file name hello.d mistakenly appears "print.d".  The compilation instructions at line 22 has the correct file name.

For the sake of my students, I eventually got a real job.

I suppose it's also worth mentioning that the info about the book on Amazon is still a bit screwed up.  The publisher is aware of the issue and is doing what they can to resolve it.  It seems to be a technical problem on Amazon's end at the moment.
