static foreach in gdc

Hi,

What's the situation with `static foreach` on gdc? When I install it using install.sh from https://dlang.org/install.html, I get 4.8.5, which does not support `static foreach`. That is also the version that is installed on travis-ci.org.

Iain is currently backporting static foreach for GCC10, I believe.
4.8.5 won't get you far, you should at least use GCC-9.2.0 which include the 2.076.0 frontend plus a lot of backports.

Yes for both points.

How comes `install.sh gdc` does not fetch a more recent version? This is probably what travis-ci.org uses as well.

On ubuntu 18.04 the latest available gdc is gdc-8. At least that one has __traits(getParameterStorageClasses, ...)` and it can compile my openmethods library if I use a workaround for the absence of `static foreach`.

You can try compiling this version from source: https://github.com/moon-chilled/gdc-d2089

It is a WIP targeting gcc 10.  Didn't make it; I found it, and then it disappeared.  Once GCC 10 proper comes out, use that.

The branch is still there, it is just under refs/git-old/heads/ so that it isn't default pulled (svn branches are under refs/svn-old respectively).

Since the conversion from svn to git is complete, we'll be going through the application process to get a devel/gdc branch setup.
