Lesson T: A Style Guide[edit]

In this template-like guide, you see the general layout for these phobos/language lesson pages.

Introductory Code[edit]

Code Example 1 Title[edit]

You may write a description of the code sample.

import std.stdio;

void main()
    writeln("Thank you for your contributions to this book.");

Code Example 2 Title[edit]

Code examples are for introducing the concepts of the lesson to the reader. They do not necessarily have to show every concept. It's even nicer if the code example did something useful and/or interesting.

import std.stdio;

void main()
    writeln("Soon these lessons will be complete.");


Concept 1[edit]

The navbar at the top is a template. You can look at the source code of this page to see how it is used. The 0 and the T lessons are there on the navbar temporarily until the lessons get better (when these lessons can actually be used for learning).

writeln("Wikimarkup can get so messy");
writeln("When you make complex templates");
writeln("D's templates are bliss compared to them");

Concept 2[edit]

Concepts are generally very important and crucial pieces of information about D. It is okay to assume that the reader has solid knowledge of C or C++ when writing these concepts.


Lessons can optionally have a conclusion. Often, the conclusion is used to inform the reader about what direction the next lessons go in and how it all ties together.


  • Tips are information that aren't quite important enough to put inside of the concepts section. Do not use <source> or <syntaxhighlight> tags here.
