compiling with : "dmd crash myclass"
makes dmd.exe crash.

putting the def of myclass into crash.d and compiling with "dmd crash"
compiles and works fine !!

Even if I'm doing something wrong; I suppose, dmd should (only) insult me... :)

You have picked up a default module name for myclass.d file of myclass.
Your class has the exact same name, which conflicts.

Changing the classname to MyClass, or the filename to Myclass.d or renaming
either one to something else will compile and run ok.  If the filename is
changed, change the import statement too.  On general principles, add a module
statement at the front of the non-main() file.

Sorry about the crash, but that's what is happenning.  Normally we start
classnames with a capital letter (and the first of each other word in the name).
Module names (and fileames) are usually all lower case.  This is probably why
you haven't seen a lot of complaints.

[Walter] - this crash could come up with a lot of new users, so it's
particularly bad public relations.

Ok, thanks for the (quick) answer. I see my mistake, now !

I'm eager to see the dmd R1.0 !!
