Hi !,

Have a file named: y.tab.d (a valid D program). DMD
cannot compile/link it. The linker complains about y.tab
not found. Must rename it ytab.d (only one suffix)
to make it Ok.

While it's simple to rename it, i think the compiler
should pass y.tab.obj to the linker. Or will the
linker will be unable to cope with it ?

Besides, that file name is generated by another program,
and it is good to keep that name.

 y.tab

The link do not find y.tab. It should look for y.tab.obj.
So instead i do:

==> dmd -c y.tab.d
==> \dm\bin\link.exe y.tab.obj,,,user32+kernel32/noi;

If i rename y.tab.d ytab.d, the file compiles and
links fine ( DMD 1.015 ).

Module names cannot have dots in them because dots represent path separators to the compiler. Sean
