digitalmars.D - D2 on FreeBSD

reply Ezneh <petitv.isat gmail.com> writes:
Hi everyone, hi Walter.

Well, I know this has been asked long time ago and you respond to that question
but I wanted to know if D2 will run on FreeBSD "soon" ?


Here's the facts : 
Soon, I'll have to use a native compiled language to realize some tasks that
will require performance, speed, efficiency, ect.

These tasks will have to run on a FreeBSD system.

I know I can use other languages (C, C++, ect) but I really want to use D2.

So, I don't want to push Walter to port dmd2 on FreeBSD "ASAP" but wanted to
know if it's planned soon.

I know you have other things to do on DMD, so do it when you have really the
time, it's not really urgent but I'd like to have it someday :-)

BTW, keep going on D and DMD before port it on FreeBSD. It's probably more
important to have a good implementation of D on Linux/Windows/Mac OSX with full
64bits support than having a bad implementation of D on all platforms because
of me.


I can wait for the port for some time. 

Thnaks in advance,
Ezneh.

What is the status of LDC2? Unfortunately I haven't been able to get a straight answer yet despite having asked on this forum a few days ago. Does it work at all? Is it reasonably up to date? Is it alpha quality? Beta quality? Stable?

I thought it was already ported, but binaries are not part of release yet? ( hint, there's a freebsd.mak in the src directory for dmd, druntime and phobos :) Regards

That's true, it should work, it's just not been tested.

Oh I didn't know that dmd was ported to FreeBSD :( Where can I get it ?

http://ftp.digitalmars.com/dmd.2.050.zip As I said, the binaries are not part of the release, but there is a makefile in the source directories for dmd, druntime and phobos which should allow you to build dmd2 for freebsd. make -f freebsd.mak Regards

Thanks. I'll try it this afternoon.

D is available in the ports tree too, under "lang/gdc". Not D2 though. --anders
