Anyone who has used libraries with Java or C# (or interpreted high-level languages) knows how comfortable it is not having to worry about any of such issues, and still have the full power of the language available across libraries. > yes. And even if .so on linux can do most of the stuff DDL does, it would be good to have a toolchain that works on all plattforms in the same way. That would also mean that the binary format is defined in the D language spec.
