"Great" is an understatement. I have known I needed this for years.

It's odd, whenever I write something to the marketing spec, nobody wants it. When I write it to please myself, I find there are a lot of likeminded people out there!

You know I read an article stating something to that effect a while back, I think in Doctor Dobbs or something. -Andy

Now, I cant agree more with you. It was a pleasure to test alpha version of compiler (despite running it on windows) . I think I found a bug not submited yet , out parameter to functions do not behave like it should , but this is off topic. Can I help you guys somehow ? I mean I would like to see gcc D front-end working as fast as possible. So I would like to help, I am C and Java programmer and know a lot about linux. best regards Jarek Zuk

Hi, I'm under a mountain of work for the next couple of weeks. What I've been hoping for was someone with a bit more know-how to step up to the plate and come up with a workable approach. If that doesn't happen relatively soon I'll step up to the plate and take a wack at it, but my C is a bit rusty. So far the main topic for debate on here has been to C++ or not to C++ and unfortunately its a debate which many will argue one way or the other despite the technical merits. Each way has its benefits and drawbacks. While I hate working in C++ I'd love to be able to just take walter's front end code at any given point and make as few modifications as possible, but I'm not convinced its possible as gcc is entirely written in non-ansi-compliant C (though you can use -pedantic mode to compile things in ANSI C -- its not written that way). Checkout www.sourceforge.net/projects/brightd and look back where I posted the links about the gcc front end. If you're still interested, get yourself a sourceforge account, and lets start talking about an approach. If you know your stuff then I'll follow your lead, otherwise we can work it out together. -Andy
