Welcome to the DDL Project

DDL stands for "D Dynamic Libraries" and as the name implies, provides dynamic library loading for the D Language. It can be used as a plugin architecture, a replacement for DLL files, an interface for dynamic reflection, or as a means for working with intermediate files.

The project is presently at the 1.2 Beta milestone, and is compatible with DMD 1.029 and Tango 0.99.6

For the most recent information and updates, project status posts can be found in the Dsource DDL Forum, under the Status Log Topic.

DDL is also the home of the D meta metaprogramming library and the Enki frontend parser generator.

Project Status

Development seems to have stalled with Changeset 318 (r318), which was committed December 14, 2008.
