Thread overview
Illegal Instruction
November 07
Using the LDC2 compiler up to date on Debian Sid:

LDC - the LLVM D compiler (1.4.0):
  based on DMD v2.074.1 and LLVM 5.0.0
  built with LDC - the LLVM D compiler (0.17.5)
  Default target: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu

in debug mode I get a program that runs (albeit the thread messaging fails to work), whereas if I use release mode I get an Illegal Instruction. I am guessing this is an LDC2 problem?


PS I can't use DMD just now to compare against as it fails to link to my build of GtkD for no reason I can ascertain. I'm still working on it.

Could be caused by several things. For example, perhaps the code is doing something technically invalid (UB) and the optimizer is making use of that (or are you not turning on optimizations?). In any case, dustmite [1] it to a testcase and report it in our bug tracker.
