I've tried to build dmd2-2.0.52 on my newly installed PCBSD 9.0, but
unfortunately it's not for x86_64.

Any idea when we might find dmd2 for 64 bit port ready?


Sincerely,
Gour

Do you mean having dmd _itself_ as a 64-bit binary or having dmd _build_ 64-bit binaries? There are _no_ plans, as far as I know, to have a 64-bit binary for dmd. As I understand it, Walter doesn't really see much point in doing so (not to mention, there are plenty of other pressing issues). So don't expect a 64-bit binary of dmd any time soon. As for producing 64-bit binaries with dmd, as of dmd 2.052, if you build with - m64 on Linux, dmd should produce 64-bit binaries just fine. However, I don't know how well it will work for any of the BSDs. - Jonathan M Davis

Well, when I attempted to build dmd2-2.0.52 port on my x86_64, I was informed that the port is available for i386 only. :-( Sincerely, Gour --=20 =E2=80=9CIn the material world, conceptions of good and bad are all mental speculations=E2=80=A6=E2=80=9D (Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu) http://atmarama.net | Hlapicina (Croatia) | GPG: CDBF17CA

I'm not sure whether that will do, but you can check it out: http://www.digitalmars.com/pnews/read.php? server=news.digitalmars.com&group=digitalmars.D&artnum=131658
