digitalmars.D - About DMD intrinsics?
- "Nick Sabalausky" <a a.a> Sep 24 2010
I'm in the (very) eary stages of using the dmdfe (ddmd, actualy) to make a "D to Haxe" converter (which would mean "D to PHP/Flash/Neko/C++"), and I figure I'll need to have an compiler-intrinsic function (or functions) to access Haxe directly. I'm not familiar with how dmd does intrinsics, and I could stumble around the source working it out, but maybe someone could provide some pointers? (No pun intended) For instance, is there somewhere I need to tell the semantics phases "this ident is an intrinsic function, so don't flag an 'undefined identifier' error when it's used"? Beyond that, is all I need to do just check if a function name is one of my intrinsics while I'm navigating the AST and react accordingly? Anything else to be aware of?
