hi,

is there a documentation somewhere of how to use the digital Mars c++Compiler
within the visual c++ ide?

Can't find anything on the website.

Sorry, there isn't any. But you can use the Digital Mars IDDE, available from www.digitalmars.com/shop.html

ok, so I'm giving one as far as I got up to now and hope someone can help me in
solving the last problems ;-):


the lc-Tool reinterprets the microsoft parameter and calls the digital mars
compiler:

Copy folowing files to the ms-Bin-directory:

lc.exe
sc.exe
sc.ini
scppn.exe
link.exe

(you should make copies of the original ms lc and link.exe)

Modify sc.ini to use the headers provided with digital mars.

compile - you will get some error because of some parameters dm's lc.exe doesn't
know. Remove those (Project/preferences/ ... you have to search).

When done this you will get linker-errors. Remove the libaries VC uses for each
project (Project/preferences/linker - winspool.lib seems to be the problem).


That's how far I got. Except some warnings from the linker I get one more error
(until now):

"Error 2: File Not Found :yes.obj"

In fact I can find a file called yes.obj nowhere on my computer . I even can't
find a file like yes.cpp and yes.* ... That for I cannot understand why the
linker tries to find that one???



PS:

In my firm we are looking for a new c++ compiler because we are nerved in the
ones we're using now (one is to slow in compiling, the other to bad with the
standards - guess which ones). That's why im testing digital mars c++. I did
order idde and it seems to be not bad (especialy class-browsing) but the visual
c++-IDE is known as a really good IDE. So chances for dm c++ would increase
rapidly if it could be used with VC-IDE (i've read in some groups, that it does
work but couldn't find details).

In the past, I have used 'external makefile' option with capturing of the
output. That way, on errors, you land up in the proper file on the improper
line....
