D.gnu - GDC on 4.2.3 with autovectorization

Here's a patch to get GDC SVN from 04.05.08 (roughly) to support 4.2.3, as well
as automatic translation of loop statements into SSE optimized assembly.

Basic procedure goes as follows: download GDC from SVN, copy it into the GCC
folder as per installation procedure, edit the setup-gcc.sh to replace the
following line:

 elif grep -q '^4\.1\.' gcc/BASE-VER; then

with
 elif grep -q '^4\.[12]\.' gcc/BASE-VER; then

then try to run it. It will, predictably, fail. _Now_ apply the attached patch to the so-prepared GDC directory. Configure and build as normal. (--disable-bootstrap if you don't like waiting for hours) BEWARE! Not really being a GCC dev, I've had to make some _very_ weird _pure guesses_ during the change to 4.2.3, so the resulting code, while it appears to work correctly (http://demented.no-ip.org/~root/results.html ; dstress backs me up .. the numbers are in line with official GDC results), might in fact, break C compatibility, break D compatibility, or eat and/or abuse (and/or sexually), without discrimination, small objects, household pets and family members, INCLUDING YOU. Don't say I didn't warn you. That being said, have fun with it! --downs PS: here's a demo of the autovectorizer at work: gentoo-pc ~ $ cat test.d && gdc test.d -o test -O2 -msse -ftree-vectorize -ftree-vectorizer-verbose=5 -g && ./test && objdump -d test |grep addps -C10 module test; import std.stdio; void main() { float[4] a = [1f, 2, 3, 4]; float[4] b = [4f, 3, 2, 1]; float[4] c; for (int i = 0; i < 4; ++i) c[i] = a[i] + b[i]; writefln(c); } test.d:5: note: not vectorized: too many BBs in loop. test.d:6: note: LOOP VECTORIZED. test.d:2: note: vectorized 1 loops in function.

appears to work fine here on a 64 bits linux. I only encountered one minor issue: once your patch is applied to a gcc source tree, it becomes impossible to build compilers for languages other than C and D from that tree (not important since I use the system compiler for everything else, but I thought I'd point it out since it took me a bit of time to figure what was wrong).
