Thanks for your answere Sean,
Thinking about your answere and the nature of Java (no pointers) I guess 
that Sedgewick's "Algorithms in Java" could fullfill my needs because I 
  would like to translate a lot of (pseudo) code like this :

nodepointer is POINTER to node;
node  is record
     d is interger;
     lnode is nodepointer;
     rnode is nodepointer;
     data is Anytype;

into D classes.

Maybe you know about the meanwhile dead PM3 Modula 3 efforts ... wish we 
have such a HUGE lib in D. Hope that comparing pointerless Java examples 
will help to translate Modula sources into D. Ahem...

btw :I wonder wether Sedgewick is still using tons of academic terms 
(means showing how clever he is) or is he meanwhile able to produce some 
output a human-beeing can read.
