294 LDC - the LLVM-based D compiler
295 -------------------------------
296
297 `D `_ is a language with C-like syntax and static typing. It
298 pragmatically combines efficiency, control, and modeling power, with safety and
299 programmer productivity. D supports powerful concepts like Compile-Time Function
300 Execution (CTFE) and Template Meta-Programming, provides an innovative approach
301 to concurrency and offers many classical paradigms.
302
303 `LDC `_ uses the frontend from the reference compiler
304 combined with LLVM as backend to produce efficient native code. LDC targets
305 x86/x86_64 systems like Linux, OS X, FreeBSD and Windows and also Linux on ARM
306 and PowerPC (32/64 bit). Ports to other architectures like AArch64 and MIPS64
307 are underway.
