A ghost in the machine.
What does C++ do better than D?
@quant_dev I remember a talk from the first D conference where an Australian physicist compiled his FFT code in both Fortran and D (gdc at the time, iirc, and using D's templates), and they had nearly identical output from the compiler when when he was looking at each instruction (though D's syntax 'c = a + b;' was much easier to program). This anecdote is several years old at this point, but worth keeping in mind as a starting point for your own benchmarking.
