I've been planning to pick up a language like C or C++ to be able to write high performance bioinformatics software, but after I found D, that seems a much more promising choice to me, having all the modern features like (optional) Garbage collector, clean productive syntax, (so-claimed) strong concurrency features etc, while still being fast and allow optional close-to-hardware coding.
Thus, it would be interesting to know what bioinformatics software is out there already, written in D (to use as examples and helpful starting points), except from the only one I found so far, the the CnD (copynumber) software from Sanger institute.
Do you know of other software, or are you writing something on your own? Even smallish script-like tools could be helpful to know about, if you're sharing as open source. And, if you wrote the software yourself, what is your impressions of the usefulness of D for bioinformatics? (Of course, authors of CnD are free to share their impressions! :) ).
(Not sure how to choose the right answer on this one ... but there's always the voting of course ^^ ...)
