What is a D file
The D file extension is used for files that store code written in a special programming language called D. D is similar to the languages C++ and C#, Java and Eiffel. The file itself can be opened by any text editing program since the source code is saved in a plain text format. However, to execute the D file, a special program is needed.
Source code contained in the D file is stored as plain text, making it possible for every text editor to open, view and save files in the D format. D is an object-oriented, imperative programming language that allows multiple paradigms. To execute D files, they have to be run with a special D compiler.
Here's a small, but not exhaustive list of programs that can open D documents:
- Code::Blocks (Windows, MAC & Linux)
- Digital Mars D compiler (Windows & Linux)
- GDC (MAC & Linux)
- MacroMates TextMate (MAC)
- Any Text Editor
