digitalmars.D - Please provide DMD as 64 executable

Hi,

is it possible to provide dmd as 64 download too for windows?

I generated out of the Amazon Web Services API definitions D 
source code and always get this error message: "Fatal Error: Out 
of memorydmd failed with exit code 1."
(There is really a space missing in the error text).

I already split the source code files into several dub packages 
but still there are some really huge modules..

Also the tip to use digger to create it on my own does not work. 
One issue is that digger does not support proxies and the second 
issue is, there is an error while processing the VS community 
packages.

I think the 64 bit version of dmd should be the default these 
days;)

Kind regards
André

I believe this is a Windows-only problem. For which I'm +1. I have to build my own because compiling some Binderoo code with a few objects breaks the memory barrier.

Yes, DMD fir Linux and FreeBSD is shipped in both 32bit and 64bit. Since several years, DMD for macOS is only shipping in 64bit. -- /Jacob Carlborg

If the problem is about git:// URLs, you can configure Git to use https:// instead of git:// globally: https://github.com/CyberShadow/Digger/issues/8 Otherwise, please file an issue at https://github.com/CyberShadow/Digger
 and the second issue is, there is an error while processing the 
 VS community packages.
VS integration is tested by CI: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/CyberShadow/digger/build/1.0.107#L1436 If you think there is indeed a problem there, please file an issue.

I solved this issue by deleting the temp folders. Should I file an issue for providing the 64 build of dmd on windows? As 64 bit is the default on the other platforms it should be available for windows too by default. Kind regards André

We would find this useful too because we run out of memory on Windows. There may be a way to build dmd for win 64 as a script, but it wasn't obvious to me when I looked at it. There is a Visual D script, but I do not know how to use that using msbuild. Digger fails. I mentioned to Vladimir and Martin at dconf, but haven't had time to file an issue. Laeeth.

We had some trickiness at work regarding this. You essentially need to invoke devenv instead of msbuild if you want to script the process. Of course, now that Visual D supports D files inside a .vcxproj, it should probably be upgraded to use one of those instead of the .visualdproject file.
