Name        : derelict
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 3
Release     : 2.20120923gitb4f810c.fc18

Summary     : Collection of D bindings to C shared libraries
Description :
derelict supports some useful features for project development, including:
- Cross-Platform Consistency
derelict loads shared libraries manually at run-time and throws an exception
when the library, or any symbol in the library, fails to load. This gives you
complete control over how to handle the case of a missing shared library. You
can fall back to a different code path, give your users a helpful error message
or take any action you want. Regardless, you have consistent behavior across
multiple platforms.
- Selective Symbol Loading - This feature allows you to override exceptions
thrown by derelict when a shared library symbol fails to load. It is a goal of
the project that each derelict package be updated from time-to-time to load the
latest version of each library. Often, new library versions include new
functions. If a user has an older version of the library installed, one that is
missing the new function symbols, derelict will notice and throw an exception.
By making use of Selective Symbol Loading, you can override this behavior and
allow the older library version to load successfully.
