Why is the version of gdc under cygwin not able to read files in the 
dos format? According to the specs *nix, DOS and MAC file formats are 
valid inputs for D.

version(GNU) is the "compiler vendor", just like version(DigitalMars) ? The "operating system" version should instead read: version(cygwin) These are both pretty lame, and version(Posix) would be much better... But that's not the way the versioning system is setup at the moment. --anders

For Cygwin, these symbols are be defined: "GNU", "Unix", and "cygwin". "Unix" should be defined for all Unix-like systems. I'm not seeing any problems with CRLF format files. Can you send me (zipped/tar'd) sample? David
