mir is a D package (akin to Python pip package). You can easily include it into your program by adding at the top of your file the following code:

/+ dub.sdl:
    name "my_script"
    dependency "mir-algorithm" version="~>3.9.12"
+/

And then just run your script with "dub my_script.d", dub will fetch the necessary dependencies, compile and run the file. However, it will not generate compiled versions of your my_script.d for that, you better set a dub project. Here, see to do it: https://tastyminerals.github.io/tasty-blog/dlang/2020/03/01/how_to_use_external_libraries_in_d_project.html
