Greetings!

I was very happy to see GDC available on cygwin, but, the list said, "...and without a working runtime the next major release of gcc will again have to drop it as it would no longer bootstrap." Has a decision being made of not supporting cygwin? Thanks.

Is anyone on this forum, or is everyone on vacation? :-)

I ve been waiting for an answer for this question too. GDC has lack of windows support for ages.

Ok, maybe we can get this fixed, somehow. :-)

I installed GDC from cygwin's setup tool. If I run,

$ gdc -v
Using built-in specs.
COLLECT_GCC=gdc
COLLECT_LTO_WRAPPER=/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-cygwin/11/lto-wrapper.exe

gcc version 11.4.0 (GCC)

you can see that it's install, but when I try to compile this very basic HelloWorld.d program,

$ cat HelloWorld.d
import std.stdio;
void main()
{
  writeln("Hello world");
}

I get these error:

$ gdc HelloWorld.d
d21: error: cannot find source code for runtime library file 'object.d'
d21: note: dmd might not be correctly installed. Run 'dmd -man' for installation instructions.
d21: note: config file: not found

What do I need to do to get gdc to run in cygwin?

Is there a list of instructions on how to get this to work in any place?

It should be simple by copying certain files to the cygwin file structure. Thanks.

Not sure but there should be a config file similar to LDC's ldc2.conf but for GDC.

Any progress on getting cygwin GDC to work?
