According to Walter (cf. https://digitalmars.com/articles/hits.pdf,
slide 5), D was designed with the assumption of running on a 32-bit or
higher CPU. How is this handled in the AVR case? Or is this strictly
only for betterC? (Even with -betterC I'm having some trouble imagining
how basic D features might work on an 8-bit controller.)
Not questioning your work -- I think this is awesome -- but just curious
about the practical implications of writing D for an 8-bit environment.
Help a man when he is in trouble and he will remember you when he is in trouble again.
