digitalmars.D - Incremental obj generation
- Stefan Koch (19/19) Sep 19 2016 Hi,
Hi, The previous thread "[WORK] std.file.update function" http://forum.dlang.org/thread/nrmb6b$2lc9$1 digitalmars.com quickly turned out to be a misnomer after a few posts about object-file-formats and codegen. Therefore I am opening this one. Of course I do have something to say about the subject. It is possible to generate object files (at least in coff64 and elf) that are usable for a minimal modification maximal extension scheme. This is for example relevant for a techniques to reduce template-codegen-times. I am not sure if the impact on the glue-layer (the part that is responsible for triggering object-code generation) will be a high cost change or not. Chances are that we will be able to integrate such a scheme with relatively low effort. If that is the case we should also think about better I/O handling for such a case.
