Hello, Denis! If you have little experience with GCC itself, it would be easier to get you started with LDC team. LDC development is very active, with many great people involved so you can always get tasks and instant help. Project web page: http://dsource.org/projects/ldc Join IRC at irc://chat.freenode.org/ldc

Very nice to hear! GDC needs to be updated to the newest dmd frontend code.

As you can see here: http://dgcc.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/dgcc/trunk/?view=log the dmd frontend used for gdc hasn't been updated for over half a year. Commit message was "Merge DMD 1.030 and 2.014". Merging the newest dmd frontend into gdc is the main maintenance work that has to be done for gdc. The newest frontend code is included in the release file. http://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd.1.039.zip Though, an incremental update following each release might be easier. Here is also a quick howto for compiling dmd (just in case): http://dsource.org/projects/tango/wiki/GdcInstallation It would be great when gdc is up-to-date again! Best wishes, Moritz

Anyway, many people would like to see gdc being updated to the newest gcc (only 4.1.x works atm.). There was some work done before already in the form of patches. You can search the newsgroup or simply ask on the #D irc channel.

Denys, I am sure the whole D community would appreciate if you help the GDC project. As someone stated before, maybe the first thing to do is to update GDC with latest DMD frontend. You should contact Arthur (the other guy working on the GDC), because he is the only active developer there.

Hello Denys,

I'm the author of several D projects (OpenMW and Monster). I
agree with people that the lack of an up-to-date gdc has been
a problem for a long time, especially since gdc is currently the
only option for D on 64 bit, and it doesn't work very well on
that platform.

I'm ready to take an active part in this project as well - it's high
 time gdc was resurrected. (If necessary I might even be willing
to take over the role as project lead.) However, like you, I
would probably need quite a few pointers to get me started.

Denys, I tried sending you an email, but the gmail address
seems to be invalid. But if you're still working on this, I'm more
than willing to help you however I can.

Nico
