I am curious about the performance of D language as a production tool, compared with C and C + + these lower level languages will be slower? Can you provide some parameters for comparison? thank you.

This article is biased towards D, but still illustrates why we tend to favor it: https://seb.wilzba.ch/b/2018/02/the-expressive-c17-coding-challenge-in-d/

Thank you for your information. It seems that the performance of D is not very bad compared with low-level languages. It may be between C and Java or. Net. As a normal production tool, there should be no problem. Thank you for your reply. Best regards

Not sure what you mean by drawing a distinction between D and low-level languages. If you translate a piece of C code into D (it doesn't even require much translation since the syntax is similar) and compile it, you'll get the performance of C. If D code is slower than C, it's because you've chosen to write slower code for convenience/safety reasons rather than performance.

I want to use d to develop my own DSL, which requires the performance guarantee of the original language to avoid the performance loss of the upper DSL. In addition, I don't want to implement an extremely complex garbage collector by myself, so I want to find a language with automatic collection function. After comprehensive consideration, I still think that D is very suitable in this respect. It is not cumbersome, fast, and the basic library is relatively complete.

In optimized settings, D doesn't have bounds checks or integer overflow checks, it can easily be the very same performance as C and C++.

You can use AMD CodeXL / Intel Amplifier and all kinds of profilers like you would in C++.

If you write the same code in the same way, you'll get identical performance between C, C++, and D. Note that they use the same optimizers and back ends.
