           Summary: GDC does not implement the D calling convention
           Product: DGCC aka GDC
           Version: 0.24
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: wrong-code
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: glue layer

From the GDC homepage:

"
Known Differences from DMD:
...
Currently, GDC uses the C calling convention for all functions except those
declared extern (Windows).
"

Considering that the spec doesn't mandate this to be an implementation specific
detail, this is a bug, which in addition cause several issues.

Additionally: I don't think it should have D_InlineAsm set as long as it is
ignoring the ABI like this. (It should probably set GDC_InlineAsm_X86 instead).

After some discussion a while ago, GCC core devs are not too keen on adding yet
another calling convention to i386 on top of what's already supported - that
makes this report a wontfix.

From the D spec:

"""
The extern (C) and extern (D) calling convention matches the C calling
convention used by the supported C compiler on the host system. Except that the
extern (D) calling convention for Windows x86 is described here.
"""

So GDC is compliant with the spec across all platforms except Windows (which
uses stdcall rather than the D calling convention as used by DMD).


D_InlineAsm is no longer set by GDC. This avoids any issues to do with library
devs writing assembly which assumes the calling convention matches whatever the
DMD compiler does.


Marking as wontfix.
