I think I'd like to help out with the documentation. I have a 1.5 hour subway commute every day that is horribly unproductive, and I believe I can spend that time cleaning up some of the documentation with my tablet. I don't believe that I have the knowledge to create any new documentation, but I can consolidate/improve/organize existing documentation, and that might help. It appears GDC is scattered in several places. So, I could use some help getting some historical perspective, a view of the current documentation landscape, and what you'd like to see as an end result (for example, which documentation to you want moved, and where would you like it moved to). I'd also be willing to migrate issues from one bug system to another if you'd like. Mike

There are three pages on Wiki4D. They all need to be removed, but the latter two I'd like to see moved across to the new wiki. The first (2) for historical, the second (3) for technical. 1. http://prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?D__Tutorial/StartingWithD/Compiler/GDC 2. http://prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?GccFrontEnd 3. http://prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?GdcHacking There's already an empty page for the last link: http://wiki.dlang.org/GDC/Hacking There might be one or two pages from the self hosted wiki that never made it to the new wiki before I shut it down, I can bring back up a read-only version of the pages. For the most part, the migration from old wikis to wiki.dlang was just a straight copy from left to right, fixing up any syntax differences along the way.
 I'd also be willing to migrate issues from one bug system to another if
 you'd like.

Only bugs that need migrating to bugzilla.gdcproject.org are here: https://bitbucket.org/goshawk/gdc/issues?status=new&status=open There's also a downloads page on bitbucket that I'd like to move off to self-host at some point. Let me know if you need anything else. Iain.

I'll need to get in touch with afb on that. He maintains those sites. At a glance these are compiled from sources as of back in 2007. And are compiled against gcc versions that have long since been no longer supported. It's a bit discomforting that there looks to be 200+ downloads of the gdcwin installer a week. :o)

Both should compliment each other. GDC/Development I'll update with any routine tasks and howtos, but keep light on the detail. GDC/Hacking should be nitty gritty and more in depth. Regards Iain

It would be really nice if progress could be made on this. Recently I tried once more to get recent compiler support for debugging. First I went on to try LDC, but the LLVM Windows target is not well supported, and there is some DWARF generation bug that makes debugging not work at all, at least with the LDC Windows binary release. I took another look at GDC and considered actually compiling it myself, but after looking at the build script and instructions, my initial reluctance to try that prevailed: In my experience such bash based build scripts, especially on foreign environments and working with lots of different tools and dependencies, tend to be very brittle and sometimes break, (or worse, work incorrectly). And when they do, there is not clear info why. I might still have to give it a try, but first a few questions. Does GDC have to be compiled with MingW+Msys, or would Cygwin work as well? What wabout mingw-w64? Would there be any differences? Would a Cygwin compiled GDC only be able to build for the Cygwin target (that is, the binaries produced by GDC would require the Cygwin runtime)? -- Bruno Medeiros https://twitter.com/brunodomedeiros

https://github.com/venix1/MinGW-GDC Building is not the time-consuming part of the mingw port afaics, the problem is that binutils, mingw, gmp,... patches need to be maintained (or better: upstreamed). We should really try to get at least the GDC patches merged though.

More out of curiosity, and trying to understand the GDC/MinGW/GCC internals a bit, what exactly is it that makes it hard to an automatic build script to produce binary releases for windows?

I could have a quick review through each to see what is reasonable to include. Though for upstream projects, there needs to be a good explanation of the change and a test for the their testsuite demonstrating the change. I'm not sure I'll be able to provide either. Regards Iain

compiled GDC only be able to build for the Cygwin target (that is, the binaries produced by GDC would require the Cygwin runtime)?

By rule of thumb - mostly yes, but compiled binaries should be standalone / not too tied in. I recall there used to be a switch that allowed you to choose between cygwin and mingw. Not sure of its still there. --001a11c2dac051096904f681ed85 Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1 Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable <p dir=3D"ltr"><br> On 12 Mar 2014 11:50, &quot;Bruno Medeiros&quot; &lt;<a href=3D"mailto:brun= odomedeiros%2Bdng gmail.com">brunodomedeiros+dng gmail.com</a>&gt; wrote:<b= r> &gt;<br> &gt; On 09/03/2014 11:46, Iain Buclaw wrote:<br> &gt;&gt;<br> &gt;&gt;<br> &gt;&gt; On Mar 5, 2014 5:00 PM, &quot;Bruno Medeiros&quot; &lt;<a href=3D"= mailto:brunodomedeiros%2Bdng gmail.com">brunodomedeiros+dng gmail.com</a><b= r> &gt;&gt; &lt;mailto:<a href=3D"mailto:brunodomedeiros%252Bdng gmail.com">br= unodomedeiros%2Bdng gmail.com</a>&gt;&gt; wrote:<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt; On 16/01/2014 16:45, Iain Buclaw wrote:<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt;<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt; Updated the GDC Project page with some better informat= ion.<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt;<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt; <a href=3D"http://gdcproject.org">http://gdcproject.or= g</a><br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt;<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt;<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt; Also got started on a ProjectIdeas page, as the list o= f things that I&#39;m<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt; currently keeping under my umbrella needs to start bei= ng distributed by<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt; anyone who wants to help out with the project.<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt;<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt; There&#39;s not just development work, so you can help= out too!<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt;<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt; <a href=3D"http://wiki.dlang.org/GDC/ProjectIdeas">htt= p://wiki.dlang.org/GDC/ProjectIdeas</a><br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt;<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt; Regards<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;&gt; Iain.<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt; So, are there any plans to update the Windows binary relea= ses?<br> &gt;&gt; =A0&gt;<br> &gt;&gt;<br> &gt;&gt; Someone will have to work out how Daniel built and maintained the = Mingw<br> &gt;&gt; binaries.
