Lars and Steven did it a while back, but the Windows port required changes in the Windows runtime that comes with dmd (due to a pipe-related bug IIRC), so there's been no point in reviewing it. I _think_ that Walter might have finally gotten those changes in in the last release, but I don't know. Regardless, until those changes are in, the new std.process is pretty much stuck. You can find the code here though: https://github.com/kyllingstad/phobos/tree/new-std-process - Jonathan M Davis

Oh yea. *Now* I remember asking the same thing before and getting pretty much the same answer... I didn't mean to sound like I'm nagging anyone about it. It's not urgent for me right now. It's just that whenever I get to thinking about the idea of heavy cmdline-scripting style stuff in D, it occurs to me that the std.process imporovements would be a big help, and then I manage to completely forget everything about it except a vague recollection that there was some sort of std.process stuff on the horizon ;)

I agree. I recommend you use the git shell, which is basically cygwin. -- /Jacob Carlborg

I do. I still hate it :)

Can't argue with you there :) This kind of software development works so much better on a Posix system. -- /Jacob Carlborg

Do you use mintty? It _really_ helps. It's much better than those dumb bash-in-cmd.exe approaches. -- - Alex

I've been out of the loop, but is this compilable now in 2.059 or do we require some sort of DMC patch? https://github.com/kyllingstad/phobos.git

I mean for win32 btw.

AFAIK it is compilable with 2.059, but you need Steve's modifications to druntime as well. Check out his new-std-process branch at https://github.com/schveiguy/druntime -Lars

I think you must have felt a disturbance in the force. Literally yesterday at around 8:30 am, I finally got around to verifying 2.058 includes the pipe fix (and it does!), so I think we are clear to get this ready for review. Hopefully by 2.060 (2.059 is out for beta right now).
 Shall we add that to the review queue?

It's on the trello board for phobos reviews, in development. I need to get in touch with Lars, it's his baby.

I must have felt the same disturbance. I logged in to Trello *by coincidence* mere minutes after you had checked this off the to-do list, and it's been months since the last time I logged in there.

It's on the trello board for phobos reviews, in development. I need to get in touch with Lars, it's his baby.

Also by coincidence, I decided to drop by the NG, and what do you know; a thread about std.process! :) I agree it's high time to get this module ready for review. Now that you have verified that pipes finally work on Windows, what remains is mostly cosmetic. I think I'll have time to work on it this weekend.
 BTW, I can't stress how much I dislike windows D development, 
 especially when I have to use git.  Linux just seems so much 
 easier, that I dread ever having to test D windows stuff.  I 
 suppose if it was my main platform, I wouldn't have to scrap

I can't stress enough how happy I was that you offered to do the Windows part of the module. ;) -Lars
