digitalmars.D - Thousands of errors

Hi 

If you make one semantic error, DMD will spit out thousands of bogus errors so
that the console window is overflowed so you cant actually tell what the real
error is :(

How can I get DMD to stop after the first error?

If you're use MS Windows, you can just pipe the output to a file, then read it back in, and just scroll down until you find the first error. Example at the WinXP commandline: --------------------------------- dmd mysource.d > output.txt type output.txt | more For information about "more" just type in "help more".

[OffTopic] LOL! windows has a "more"? and a "pipe"? Wow, I never knew that! I Actually never worked much with the command line on windwos.

Batch files aren't completely useless.. ;) For that matter, I never quite understood why Walter used a linux script and a script interpreter to compile the D examples, when the script could very easily be rewritten with a batch file. Seems like overkill.

The pipe isn't even needed here... "more output.txt" is practically the same as "type output.txt | more".
