           Summary: dmd fails to create x86_64 object files
           Product: D
           Version: 2.012
          Platform: PC

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Phobos

dmd does not create x86_64 object files and there even seems to be no way to tell it for what architecture to compile.

This isn't a bug; nowhere does it say DMD is supposed to be able to generate
64-bit code. It's just an x86 compiler.
At best, this is an enhancement request. I'm leaving it open as such, since I
couldn't find one for this yet.

If you want to generate 64-bit code, I'd suggest GDC: get the debian/ubuntu
package (if appropriate) or go to <>.
Note that the svn version currently has some bugfixes since the last released
version (0.24), so if you're getting it from sourceforge you may want to try
compiling from svn. (The packages in the debian & ubuntu repositories should
already include those fixes)
