Does D have high-performance sockets
Are there any implementations of this anywhere for D?

I really only care about the windows platform - and have 
considered writing this myself with IOCP and std.socket, but I 
figure someone else must have already done something similar?

Not in the standard library as yet.  The thing holding this back, I  
believe, is the difficulty making it work "the same" cross platform.   
Someone might have their own tho..

Take a look at vibe.d. While it looks like framework it could be used as 
library just as easy.

My solution might be too simple. I made a simple socket server
that is single threaded, based on std.socket. Its really neat as
a need to have socket server library but I wouldn't recommend
using it in high performance applications. It imitates actually
QuickServer in Java, and the code shows clearly that I come from
a Java background

There is also this nice project: https://github.com/meh/nucular

I should of mentioned my interest is purely asynchronous TCP/UDP.


Anyways, there are some great projects here.
I had no idea vibe.d could be used as a TCP server/client!
Nucular does also seem to be promising and a good fit for my 
projects.

Thanks for the information, and if there are any other great
projects out there, please do share it will benefit us all I'm 
sure.
