I get dmd ouput:
"unable to fork: Cannot allocate memory"

when compiling the following code:


import std.stdio;

import gio.Application : GioApplication = Application;
import gtk.Application;
import gtk.ApplicationWindow;
import gtk.Widget;
import gdk.Keysyms;

int main(string[] args)
{
	Application application;
	
	bool onKeyPress(GdkEventKey* eventKey, Widget widget)
	{
		writeln(GdkKeysyms.GDK_Escape);
		return false;
	}
	
	void activate(GioApplication app)
	{
		ApplicationWindow win = new ApplicationWindow(application);
		win.addOnKeyPress(&onKeyPress);
		win.showAll();
	}
	
	application = new Application("org.gtkd.demo.cairo.clock", GApplicationFlags.FLAGS_NONE);
	application.addOnActivate(&activate);
	return application.run(args);
}


with this commandline..
dmd -v -L-lgtkd-3 -run test2.d

..it hangs for a some seconds at..
import    core.checkedint	(/usr/include/dmd/druntime/import/core/checkedint.d)

..while memory usage grows up to 100%, then continues with other imports..
code      test2
function  D main
function  test2.main.onKeyPress
function  test2.main.activate
function  std.stdio.writeln!(GdkKeysyms).writeln
function  std.stdio.File.write!(GdkKeysyms, char).write
function  std.format.formattedWrite!(LockingTextWriter, char, GdkKeysyms).formattedWrite
...

then finally..
cc test2.o -o /tmp/dmd_run6k9PhI -m64 -L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -Xlinker --export-dynamic -Xlinker -Bstatic -lphobos2 -Xlinker -Bdynamic -lpthread -lm -lrt -ldl
unable to fork: Cannot allocate memory

if i comment-out the line..
writeln(GdkKeysyms.GDK_Escape);

then it compiles/links/runs fine.


I actually want to close the application if escape key is pressed with
if (eventKey.keyval == GdkKeysyms.GDK_Escape) ...

but i don't know if my imports and the event handler are correct, and i dont know how to close the application yet.
I guess there is something wrong during the compilation process?


DMD64 D Compiler v2.078.1

gtkd import path is in /etc/dmd.conf:
...
[Environment64]
DFLAGS=-I/usr/include/dmd/phobos -I/usr/include/dmd/druntime/import -I/usr/include/dmd/gtkd3 -L-L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -L--export-dynamic -fPIC

Some gtkd demo used core.stdc.stdlib.exit to quit the application.
I use widget.destroy now, seems to work fine.

About the compilation error with writeln(), its not a problem anymore for me right now. Don't know if this is a [known] issue or what the cause is.

I just tried again.
compiling the following code eats up my 4GB of RAM and fails. Please copy the enumeration
from: https://github.com/gtkd-developers/GtkD/blob/master/generated/gtkd/gdk/Keysyms.d
into the code.


import std.stdio;

void main()
{
	writeln(GdkKeysyms.GDK_Escape);
}

public enum GdkKeysyms
{
	...
}


Reducing the number of enum entries step by step finally will make the compilation succeed. Is it normal that it needs so much memory?

Yes unfortunately std.conv approaches the problem of printing enums with recursive templates  , which eat a ton of memory.

Ok, thanks for the info. I guess I'll just use printf then for larger enums.

To get the same convince you can use.
the enumToString from:

https://forum.dlang.org/post/pnggoabnnkojdonyzybx@forum.dlang.org

and writeln the result oft that.
however it'll cause an error if there are two enum memebrs with the same value.
