I wrote A starting guide for Newbies
Hi guys,

I decided to wrote a starting guide for newbies and newcomers 
with D Language. It's a really simple and basic introduction for 
those who may be a little lost like me when I started.

It's a PDF file format and can be seen accessing the link bellow.

Link: http://goo.gl/GkAYO

Any problems or mistakes please let me know.

I really hope you enjoy.

Link to the actual PDF itself? Google's viewer is the only PDF reader on the 
planet that actually manages to be worse than Adobe's reader.

Hi,

You can download the ORIGINAL PDF FILE clicking on "File" button 
(Top-Left) and then "Download Original" and save in your PC.

That relies on actually using Google's broken-ass "software", and getting 
the worthless thing to even work in the first place:

Yea, I could go jumping through all their moronic hoops, but what's wrong 
with *standard* links/URLs? I don't understand why Google insists on waging 
their war against normal sensible <a> links and everything intelligent, but 
there's no reason to encourage it.

Bottom line, Google has their heads firmly up their asses, and even if they 
didn't: it makes no sense to force people to use Google's *cough* "software" 
just to access a basic URL. I don't go forcing people to use FoxIt reader 
just to **access** PDFs I link to.

Oh!  You are getting that because your browser isn't supporting modern web
features.  :)

It's wonderful that, in these days, your browser can be nearly anything --
a PDF-viewer, image-editor, music player, etc.  A browser is just like the
Thneed in The Lorax (by Dr. Seuss) -- it can be anything that you need!

It supports <a> links, which Google apperently doesn't support. (Hell, they 
think they own the web and can define the web to be whatever the fuck they 
feel like.)

Looks nice. Congratulations. And don't get discouraged by the 
off-topic talk about browsers. It's part of the fun on this News 
Group.

My suggestion is that you should specify that your guide is about 
tools an configuring those tools. Because just looking at the 
title "Starting Guide for Beginners", it gave me the impression 
that it was some tutorial about the language. Or do you plan to 
expand more the guide and include more info about D and/or Phobos?

Anyways, good luck.

No problem about the OT.

Well I know, the guide is really mostly about tools and not the 
language itself, I was thinking about increment it with more 
things about D, which I'll do after I finish my game port to D.

Looks like for the author (and many others) the IDE represents the 
language and the compiler is a tool for the IDE.

No way pal, IDE for me is just a tool, and I refer to a IDE 
constantly because I like the productivity that it provides when 
I need dealing with a huge project it's resources for example.

You can write a code inside a simple text editor without any 
resouces except OPEN & SAVE. But I really prefer using a text 
editor with syntax highlight instead.
