GDC is a open-source D compiler using GCC as back end and parts of DMD in the front end. The current version is 0.24 which is based on DMD 1.020.

The website can be found at http://dgcc.sourceforge.net/

An updated effort to help get GDC updated can be found at http://bitbucket.org/goshawk/gdc/wiki/Home

Install GDC on Debian or Ubuntu[edit]

GDC is available in Ubuntu Repositories since 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon).

Also, a debian package does exist for version 0.22 of the GNU D Compiler front end. See http://gdcgnu.sourceforge.net/

Joakim Karlsson has previously made shell script for automatic install. It needs to be updated for the latest version of the GNU D Compiler and the GCC Version.
