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.
+D is a general-purpose programming language with static typing, systems-level
+access, and C-like syntax. With the D Programming Language, write fast, read
+fast, and run fast.
-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.
+This package provides GCC 8 with C, C++ and D. It doesn't conflict with GCC 5
+shipped by Slackware.
-GDC version provided by this package is the latest from the official
-"gdc-5" 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.
+Since GCC is built several times to bootstrap the D frontend written in D with
+an older C++-version, be sure you have about 9 GB of disk space in your
+temporary directory.
