Great news indeed! Congrats!

Iain,

You've made a cross for yourself there! If you need help with grunt tasks - like a
broken piece of D code with a decent description of the problem, or even grunter,
I might be able to help. As you know, I've been in those muddy waters before with
nobody to even consult. With a guru like you I could probably get moving fairly
quickly.

Just as a matter of interest, how do you rate GDC 2.055 for speed alongside the
Linux DMD.

Of course it is way faster. You should compare with gcc instead.

Are you saying that GDC is way faster?

But I take your point.

Yep. Especially for floating point calculations.

Worst-case scenario for dmd:

(be sure to read through the whole thread though, I refined my post later  
and then gdc and ldc were on par with C++ while dmd is still slower than  
javascript.)

Another test:
