GSoC - Question about "XML Processing" Project.
Hello there,

My name is Omar , I am a student and would like ask a question about XML
Processing Project to make sure that I understand it well:

  - The library will be implemented in D , right ? and Is there any way so
  I can design and implement the algorithms in C or C++ , I believe they are
  the fastest languages ever!


I am now writing my proposal in this project and it will be great if I can
show my ideas with you. :)
Looking to hearing from you all , and work with you as well.

Regards,
Omar

Hi Omar,


Thanks for your interest. You could design and implement in C or C++ and 
then link the resulting functions with D. However, this is likely to 
impede ability to interface seamlessly with D and to create additional 
hoops for anyone who wants to use your library.

All of this is unnecessary. It is well understood that D offers you the 
same control that C and C++ do; for a given backend the code generated 
is equally efficient. I infer that you are just starting with D, so I 
suggest you familiarize with it a fair amount more before submitting an 
application.

Hurry - deadline is April 8.
