+This is GDC (GNU D Compiler), the D frontend for GCC.
+D is a general-purpose programming language with static typing,
+systems-level access, and C-like syntax. It combines efficiency,
+control and modeling power with safety and programmer productivity.
+This package is for GCC 5.3.0 shipped with Slackware. It doesn't
+replace any of GCC stock files, so it should be safe to uninstall it.
+If it breaks your GCC installation nevertheless, please let me know.
+GDC version provided by this package is the latest from the official
+"gcc5" branch. Please note that GDC doesn't support all the latest
+features supported by the corresponding DMD version.
+GDC doesn't conflict with DMD, they can be installed and used together.
