I wouldn't waste time on him if I were you. from all his posts to the NG it's evident that he's not a polite person, and does not appreciate the work being done by the community and made available free of charge. there's a saying - "Never look a gift horse in the mouth", which comes to mind. if he didn't understand something, there's a proper way to ask questions without insulting the people who worked hard to provide the software he uses free of charge. anyway, if he'll continue to pollute the environment and this NG, I'll just add a filter to my newsreader. It takes less than a minute and it really is time well spent. I suggest you do the same. -- Yigal

There is nowhere I have found that lists down what the completed file structur should look like for dsss dmd or dwt. I am using Tango and I would like to compare my file structure to the official one . Thats extra maintenance I suppose but surely this could be automated.

What's a "completed file structur"? Perhaps if you posted what your "completed file structur" is, someone might give a suggestion of whether it looks right or whether it could be improved.

Pro'ly not. I've never tried it. I use Omea from jetbrains and It seems to have good filtering (I just set it up to ignore Ty so well see how good it is) and also does a better job of archiving posts for offline viewing.

As the only non-contributing, continuously abusive person in the community, wouldn't the dickhead here be you? You can feel free to ignore others' pleas to calm down, but be aware that in the end the only person you're hurting is yourself. Particularly, you may find it appealing to tear your own hair out when it comes time to look for a job when you grow up, as your prospective employer finds some of these posts on Google. But you won't understand that either, people like you are only capable of learning by bashing their own heads against the wall. Good luck, David.

You are an assuming fool. I am contributing whether you reallise it or not . I assure you I am calm and considerate until someone throws abuse at me or trys to tell me what to do. Then I will tell you and all others who act like you to go fuck yourself. I am not likely to need a job . I do not need money and I have no need to be Mr Personality. I am here to learn and will do so despite any cry of outrage from the likes of you. I also have no need of luck . If the whim takes me I could come look you up tomorrow. No problem.

This one probably should go into dwt but should be here as well as it relates to the rebuild default action when the config file is changed I attempted to dsss build the latest dwt-samples-200a229be5ca If something is wrong the compiler jumps out at that point , so a segment fault or compiler error stops compilation of all of the other files in the configuration file. OK now thats not good if you have problems and this one did have . So I # out the completed compiled files in dsss.conf and run it again. It tells me that it is deleting files and lists all the files that it realy hasn;t got to yet so they are not compiled. It tells me it is deleting them anyway....inaccurate and silly So that hasn't done me any time damage so on I go that way for about 4 more goes to get what will compile done so I can have a look at them. Now what I really want to pass on to someone ,perhaps a new looker, is the following will not compile so don't expect them to if you are on Linux dwtsnippets/opengl dwtsnippets/program dwtsnippets/tray dwtexamples/clipboard dwtexamples/controlexample dwtexamples/texteditor user/dragdrop Cheezy grins

For C, see below. "alignment" is not a specifier in itself in any way, it is the number seen behind a comma in some of the examples; so what do you mean with it not being recognized?
  Your lookers should not have to go delving to find out why, it needs to
  just work.
We appreciate tickets posted at http://www.dsource.org/projects/tango/newticket

 I have {unknown format 'C'} in cash.
 Avogadro's number is 6.02e+23.
 Avogadro's number (with alignment) is 6.02e+23.
 
 
 This is the example program which also appears in the tango book
You need to point me to where this can be found in the book, in which case it will be listed in the errata.

     Stdout.formatln("Avogadro's number (with alignment) is {0,4:E}.",
     avogadros);
 }
Thanks, this example is indeed in error. Currently C is only available as a specifier if you have a Locale enabled (as you can read in the book). The E specifier does appear to not work properly under Locale though. -- Lars Ivar Igesund blog at http://larsivi.net DSource, #d.tango & #D: larsivi Dancing the Tango

I wanted to do the install process again because it is such a mess I also wanted to write a guide for Linux users . Now here&#347; the rub . Dsss requires dmd installed first. So I go to get dmd 1.028 dmd 1.028 and all prior do not have an install instruction file in them so stupidly they dont associate the install instructions with each distribution Now this means whatever install instructions you see on the web site are for the current distro only. So if you have downloaded the 5Meg file previously , you now can use it because the installation instructions may be wrong . You have to download it again ! Clots

Well here we go again. Whoever writes the installation notes for dsss and dmd should initially suggest to new users to put the directories in their $HOME directory . I see now that following the given instructions means you have some permission problems getting to object.d. That causes errors in the compiles and the messages are cryptic from both of these programs. New lookers without some prior dmd and dsss experience will find the compiler output nearly indecipherable.

DMD comes with samples - one in particular won't compile This is the error d2html.d(335): Error: identifier 'ReadError' is not defined d2html.d(335): Error: ReadError is used as a type and this the offending program piece } // if end of file is reached and we try to read something // with typed read(), a ReadError is thrown; in our case, // this means that job is successfully done catch (ReadError e) { Dunno at this stage where ReadError comes from Now looking at the English above what do they mean "with typed read() Should that be "with type read()"........"with a keyboard entry"......"with method read()"......."with function read()" .........God knows

A little more on the examples All of the COM examples ,chello.d,dclient.d,dserver.d don't compile along with winsamp.d. The reason given is /home/tytower/dmd/bin/../src/phobos/std/c/windows/windows.d(12): static assert is false Now I see a batch file leading to a script file for all in Windows but no Dsss.conf file for us Linux dumbos. I suppose these need special treatment or libraries.

That should be "samples " in the prior posts . One more recls_test_1.d(48): module recls cannot read file 'std/recls.d' The file /phobos/std/recls.d imported by this program is not there .

OK here is another that I have touched on before but it was not as clear to me then as it is now. If you choose to run Tango then the file you get with "dsss" must be checked and changed if necessary. I havn't seen a correct one in anything I have downloaded to date and that's up to the distro available today. Go to /dsss/etc/rebuild and first make sure the default file reads " dmd-posix-tango" Then go into "dmd-posix-tango" and change the file as per my #note below profile=tango compiler=dmd inifile=dmd.conf exeext= objext=o version=DigitalMars noversion=GNU version=linux noversion=Unix version=Posix noversion=Windows noversion=Win32 noversion=Win64 version=X86 noversion=PPC noversion=X86_64 version=D_InlineAsm version=D_InlineAsm_X86 noversion=D_InlineAsm_PPC noversion=D_InlineAsm_X86_64 version=LittleEndian noversion=BigEndian version=Tango [compile] cmd=dmd -version=Posix -version=Tango -c $i flag=$i incdir=-I$i libdir=-L-L$i optimize=-O version=-version=$i [link] oneatatime=no #....note... while here change "yes" to "no" above"....# cmd=dmd $i -of$o # ....note....took out of above for Tango "-L--start-group -L-lphobos" before $i.... # libdir=-L-L$i lib=-L-l$i flag=-L$i [liblink] safe=yes oneatatime=yes cmd=ar rc $o $i libdir= lib= flag= [postliblink] cmd=ranlib $i [shliblink] shlibs=no [dyliblink] dylibs=no Then at least you will get a result not like the shit I have been trying to wade through Its a bloody disgrace for Linux users of Tango , what a ballsup.

I'm not so sure. That looks like a runtime error, not a compile time error. If he's getting the error when he tries to compile something, maybe it's an error in a build tool, but it certainly does not look like a compile time error.

Yep its a runtime error . I should have said . As you can't file a bug report without joining something and giving out emails I am using this as a bug report venue and have been for some time . If no-one chooses to do anything about them too bad . There are stacks of choices for me.

Then you'll have to get used to people ignoring your bug reports. Tango is maintained by a core team of about 3 people, all of whom have real lives and real jobs. They just don't have the time or manpower to collate bug reports from all over the web. Also, this is a runtime error. Try throwing _any_ exception and you'll notice that no file or line is given. In order to know where an exception occurred, either the language has to have some kind of built-in support whereby it will pass the file and line of the 'throw' statement to the exception's constructor (which it doesn't), or you have to have a traceback mechanism (which, by default, does not exist). Apparently you can get traced exceptions in Tango by using flectioned; I've never used it.

Or use ddbg (a debugger for d) and unwind the stack when the exception is thrown

Even if you filed this as a bug report, it wouldn't be sufficient. There is no way of reproducing, no way of knowing whether you are throwing this exception in your code, or using another library, etc. More information about what you are doing is necessary. I don't think any reasonable software development team is going to take a bug report seriously if you don't take it seriously. If you would rather not use Tango, then that is a viable option. If your goal is to use Tango, put in some effort and file a ticket. Even digitalmars uses a bug reporting system, and their team pretty much doesn't do anything without a bug report there. The newsgroup is for fleshing out ideas, seeing if someone else knows how to solve a problem, asking if a bug is already known, etc. It is not a bug reporting mechanism. -Steve
