Thanks!

Hi Rainer, I wasn't sure exactly where to ask this, but I figured this is was as good of a place as any.

The new C++/D Project template looks absolutely amazing, it has never been this easy to get started with a C++ main function that can call D, especially on Windows. I was wondering how exactly this works in the background though, are you compiling to .obj files with the different compilers (MSVC+DMD) and then passing it to the linker, or are you creating a D static library and linking it that way behind the scenes?

I looked at the .vcxproj file and it looks very similar to "regular" .vcxproj files, could I edit my already existing C++ project (that uses a non-standard project template with a custom compiler, not MSVC) and just add the D parts and convert a C++ project to C++/D that way?

This might just be the last step needed to get more game developers to follow Remedy and start using D in their engines (alongside C++ at first), assuming that it actually is that easy to do with any kind of C++ project.

I'll stick around the #d IRC channel if you have any specific questions about what it is I want to do, but I'm not sure how much I should say here.

Visual D adds a new task "CompileD" to msbuild together with a new "Item Type" that gets automatically assigned to items with extension .d. This task creates object files that are added to the linker command line in addition to some additional options like library search paths.

You can just drag a .d file into any VC project to integrate it with compilation and linkage. The D compiler options page will appear automatically. (Depending on what your code does you might have to add the phobos library to the linker settings, but it is supposed to be automatic, too).

Small request on the latest release.

You added the ability to collapse case statements, which is nice. The only problem I'm having which is just annoying more than anything else is that the collapse bleeds over to the next case statement's header comments:


case 1:
....
break;


// Case 2
case2:


When collapsing case 1, the comment will get folded along with it.


As a simple work around I suggest:

You go to the next case(or default or closing }) and then backtrack to fight the last return, break, throw, or goto and then everything in between will either go with the second case, or be split up based "closeness" to the case statement.



the idea is to handle footer comments of the previous case:

case 1:
....
break;
// that was case 1

// Case 2
case2:


Here the nl will break the two apart but mainly because // Case 2 is right next to case 2.



Or simply attack all connected comments preceding the case statement to the case statement(within scope of course).

Thanks.. Seems VD is starting to shape up! ;)

Yes, keeping the comment above the case makes sense. I guess it's very uncommon to have a comment after the end of the previous case block (or almost any block), but the newline rule sounds good, too.

In C++ I tend to add "// fallthrough" right there if I actually don't want to break, but that's not how it works in D.
