Downloadable spec for D version 2
Is there a downloadable spec for the D version 2 language, in either PDF 
or HTML format ?

I got it from amazon for kindle for $0.99.

http://www.amazon.com/D-Programming-Language-Specification-ebook/dp/B005CCQPKK/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1353422974&sr=1-1&keywords=d+programming+language+specification

If you don't have a kindle you could still read with amazon cloud 
reader - but this is not great because no search or copy/paste. 
However, you can download and convert the amazon format to mobi 
and probably pdf with calibre which is a great tool.

Thanks

So the D Language Spec version 2 is only in Kindle format, and not in 
PDF or HTML anyplace it can be downloaded ?

Yes... Not good !

I'm interested in "D". Still. Working on. I bought the
Alexandrescu book, fine. I am always ok to buy good books.

But why not to provide, in some way, references, in the classical
"smart Unix/FSF... way" ??

I think it's not a good way. Not good for "promoting" a good
language.
In fact, as an old Unix aficionado, often, for some topics, if I
cannot get source + doc, the tool goes away... And sure I'm not
alone.

Have you seen the case for "go". Couldn't find any doc, must be
online for reference !
