- Fixed Spaces in Directories issue ( I hope ).

- Now if you specify <filename>.lib in the Linker options then that lib 
is passed on to the link command without path information. ( You can 
still add specific LIB and OBJ files to the project )

- Icons!  You will quickly realize why I make my living as a programmer 
and not an artist(the main program Icon is pretty bad).  Even so, its 
amazing what a few icons will do for a program's appearance.

- As far as web/ftp hosting, I don't know if a website would be 
justified for this as it is fairly small.  The Yahoo group is a good 
idea, though it requires you to be a Yahoo user.

- The toughest part of this(other than not using D!) is dealing with 
Win32's processes and pipes.  WHAT A PAIN.  I was using a free Delphi 
Unit I found but it was doing weird stuff, so I rewrote my own from 
scratch.

Barring some generous soul who wishes to donate a little bandwidth I 
will think of something.  Since I will likely opensource it in future 
Sourceforge is an option.

I can integrate your tool Derek but I know nothing about it.  Does it 
simply require the starting D file then finds all the others?

Would there be a need for Digital Mars C++ support?

The only major item I can think would be cool would be to actually 
provide a list of functions under each source file, like Eclipse/JBuilder.

Thanks for the testing guys, and let me know any other bugs/deficiencies.

A bit of the 'why' I made this:
For my projects I have several files which I happen to use all over the 
place.  I absolutely hate having several copies of these files around, 
simply because I make additions/bugfixes then have to go find all the 
duplicates and update them.

DManager allows you to keep all these core files in a central location 
then add the import path to your workspace and add the source files from 
their home location.  Much cleaner imo.

Have fun.

Yes please.

Yes. That is how it works. It is best to start with the 'topmost' source in the hierarchy. build firstfile.d [optionalswitches . . .]

I already use a tool to do this, but it has some warts. I'll have a look at yours. -- Derek Parnell Melbourne, Australia 13/03/2005 3:19:51 PM

If it's open source, you could have it hosted at dsource.org. Just post a request in the Potential Projects forum and Brad will set up a project for you with a cutting-edge SVN code repository. http://www.dsource.org/forums/viewforum.php?f=13 -- Justin (a/k/a jcc7) http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/
