digitalmars.D - import conflicts are a pain...

reply clayasaurus <clayasaurus gmail.com> writes:
core/rotozoom.d(26): import core.rotozoom.std conflicts with 
core.texture.std at core/texture.d(48)

and guess what? the problem lies in neither of these files. i had to 
figure out which file I needed to add another import to, and which 
import I need to add. It took me way too long as I rarely get this 
error, but when I do it is really annoying.

*sigh*

Is it possible for DMD to give at least a little nicer error message, 
like...

core/rotozoom.d(26): import core.rotozoom.std conflicts with 
core.texture.std at core/texture.d(48), try importing std.math to 
core/frame.d

or

core/rotozoom.d(26): import core.rotozoom.std conflicts with 
core.texture.std at core/texture.d(48), however due to the nature of 
this error message, the problem lies in neither of the given files, good 
luck finding it! Especially if you are not the sole developer, and have 
no clue which file it could possible be.


just frusterating... had to rant, sorry.

than the file name.. like testing/test.d ------------------------ module testing.tester.d ------------------------ is an error, but testing/test.d ------------------------ module testing.test.d ------------------------ or so I have always thought. -- Thanks, Trevor Parscal www.trevorparscal.com trevorparscal hotmail.com

I thought those errors were caused by the module name being different than the file name.. like testing/test.d ------------------------ module testing.tester.d ------------------------ is an error, but testing/test.d ------------------------ module testing.test.d ------------------------ or so I have always thought.

no, that's another one that is annoying the first time but after that you realize what is wrong. "module core.tex is in multiple packages core.tex" when core.tex should be named core.texture. maybe the message should be... "module core.tex module name does not match filename" anyway, just search the bugs forum for "import std conflicts with d.std" to know what I am talking about. not sure how i can post a link to it.
