Chapter 41


In Chapter 39, Stability, we learned about the DTrace features for determining the stability attributes of D programs that you create. Once you have created a D program with the appropriate stability attributes, you may also wish to bind this program to a particular version of the D programming interface. The D interface version is a label applied to a particular set of types, variables, functions, constants, and translators made available to you by the D compiler. If you specify a binding to a specific version of the D programming interface, you ensure that you can recompile your program on future versions of DTrace without encountering conflicts between program identifiers that you define and identifiers defined in future versions of the D programming interface. You should establish version bindings for any D programs that you wish to install as persistent scripts (see Chapter 15, Scripting) or use in layered tools.
