digitalmars.D - More DS3 feedback

Ok, being lazy again (and trying to replicate what I think the typical lazy D programmer will do), I created a dsss.conf like so: name = myapp [myapp.d] [mymain.d] target = myapp And my tree looks like so: src/ foo/ bar/ myapp.d mymain.d dsss.conf Of course, when I ran 'dsss build', I got: myapp.d(5): module dunit cannot read file 'foo\bar\myapp.d' So I thought: "Aha! I need to move dsss.conf to my app root and build from there"...which resulted in: WARNING: Section for nonexistant file myapp.d. WARNING: Section for nonexistant file mymain.d. Now, the reason this is significant, is because these guesses were tried *after* reading "DSSS by Example" page (very quickly, of course). After playing around with it some more, things start to crystallize for me, and I realize that one little line of explanation would have gone a long way for me: "Thingys in dsss.conf in square brackets are directories or files relative to the project root." I guess you're supposed to infer this from the third example, but my powers of inference are clearly inferior to Inspector Holmes', so a conspicuous, explicit statement somewhere early would probably help 90% of users get started right away and see the magic. Hope that helps. Dave P.S. You're probably wondering how such an idiot could possibly write correct D programs; but I assure you it is both possible and much more common than you might suspect!
