Hi all!

I'm running MacOSX and i ran the mac DMD installer. However, it doesn't look like the /druntime/import and /phobos/src directories got installed anywhere. these are needed for the mono-d monodevlop add-in to work for D programming. couple questions:

1) am i just missing it, and they got installed someplace? i did a hard drive search and couldn't find them.

2) if they didn't get installed, can we get that installer updated to have those get installed someplace?

i'd really like to get this running, and it would be helpful if the installation process was fairly straightforward. i'm working on this doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1otZvBUGM_soFAN-OH2BtdB_-J9qiw_2nJM0WNDzvSho/edit?pli=1 and that's the last bit.

Do you have homebrew? If so, you can run brew install dmd. It'll install dmd and the supporting files will be in /usr/local/Cellar/dmd/<version>

The compiler is installed in /usr/share/dmd if I recall correctly. Another great way to install the compiler is to use DVM. It lets you easily install and switch between multiple versions of the the compiler.

Jacob: the compiler is installed in usr/local/bin. but that doesn't matter, that's not what i need to locate. :)

Robert: no, i don't have homebrew. nor should users be expected to have it. the mac installer should install those support files.

-

this is what it comes down to, installing this and getting it running should be painless. it's pretty close with the mac installer, but the mac installer needs to install those support files too. if it did, we'd be in good shape. i can add a bug or something to get that happen.

If no one has changed the installer since I created it, it's only a symlink in /usr/local/bin and the actual compiler and alla it's needed files are installed in /usr/share/dmd (IIRC).

It's dead easy to install using dvm.

If the druntime/Phobos modules were not installed, not even compiling Hello World would work, so you most probably have them already. You should be able to find the directories by searching for object.di (druntime) and e.g. algorithm.d (Phobos) in /usr/share/dmd.

From [1], it seems like /usr/share/dmd/src/druntime/import and /usr/share/dmd/src/phobos are the directories you are looking for. I personally don't use the pre-packaged installer though, so I don't know for sure.

I've verified now that Phobos and druntime are installed in "/usr/share/dmd/src/".
