digitalmars.D - MinTLc embedded locks library out of date?

reply James Dunne <james.jdunne gmail.com> writes:
Ben,

Your MinTLc library includes a dependent version of the locks library, 
which is slightly outdated compared to the independent version offered 
on your site (i.e. using !== and === instead of !is and is, respectively).

It also breaks compilation in locksimpl.d on linux (haven't tested on 
Win32, so I can't say), while the independent version compiles just 
fine.  I don't know if you have special modifications made to the 
dependent locks library for use with MinTLc vs. the independent locks 
library.  Hopefully, they should be one in the same, but it is not safe 
for me to assume so.  For now, I'll try using the independent locks 
library (overwriting the dependent copy MinTLc.zip unpacks).

Thanks, Ben!

On 2nd check, the library completely fails to compile with many errors under linux. I'm using DMD v0.129. -- Regards, James Dunne

Hmm. I'll check it out after the long weekend. I hadn't been giving much attention to locks and mintlc lately.
