Compiler setup in Descent
Hi

I was wondering if anyone can help? I have download and installed
Eclipse 3.4.1 and Descent 0.5.3.20081026, but I am unable to setup the
compiler. 

The docs on dsource say there should be an option to add a compiler;
Windows -> Preferences -> D -> Installed Compilers, but this isn't
present. I have Windows -> Preferences -> D -> Compilers but no
ability to add a new compiler. Am I setting things up correctly?

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Ouch, sorry. I removed that preference entry in the last nightly build 
(it was giving more trouble than solutions), tried to remember to update 
the docs but apparently forgot. :-)

I removed that section from the wiki, and updated this page:

http://dsource.org/projects/descent/wiki/ConfiguringProject

Note that Descent doesn't compile a project for you. It just uses 
include paths to make semantic analysis and to be able to offer you 
autocompletion, go to definition, etc.

You can, however, configure an external tool:

Thanks, I've managed to compile a program using rebuild, but descent
isn't analysing correctly, even though I've added the include path it
is showing  'int' as not correctly spelled. See screenshots attached.

You need to utilize the "D Spelling Engine" in General > Editors under
preferences IIRC.

Go to Window > Preferences, which opens the preferences dialog. Then 
navigate to General (top node) > Editors > Text Editors > Spelling and 
choose "D Spelling Engine" at the top of this window from the combo box 
(instead of "Default spelling engine")

Thanks for the tip, the setting was in Window -> Peferences -> General
-> Editors -> Text Editors ->  Spelling -> "D spelling engine".

I sorta thought you would know to go to the preferences pane, which
would bring that down to General -> Editors -> Text Editors -> Spelling.

As it is, spelling was only added in Eclipse 3.3, and as such not many
people know about it (I've used Eclipse since 3.1, so I've been 'round
the block so to speak).
