That's great, but it appears to be a secret. I can't find any comment on this on the cygwin site, or perhaps I missed it.

Last time I saw it, it was an August 2004 version, quite unstable to be used for any serious developement. Ciao

The gdc D compiler is installable with the common setup tool. There is 
an option "gcc-gdc D compiler". As others pointed out the version is 
from August 2004 for gcc 3.3.3-3. All other packages have been updated 
recently to gcc 3.4.x.

Perhaps, we could ask the Cygwin gcc-gdc package maintainer to update 
the package to version 0.1 on actual gcc 3.4.x (does somebody know who 
the package maintainer is?)?.

The cygwin port is very valuable because the gdb debugger works fine -- 
possibly with graphical frontends, didn't try it, yet. The performance 
of executables is comparable to native windows ones. I did not encounter 
problems with stability but with the old Phobos (i.e. std/stdio.d is 
missing).

Greetings Martin

Well I noticed it only be running the Setup tool, and explicitly downloading the D Programming Language package. AEon

come to think of it, I think that's where I learned about D in the first place. I was installing Cygwin, sad GDC, and then looked it up because I was curious... -- -PIB -- "C++ also supports the notion of *friends*: cooperative classes that are permitted to see each other's private parts." - Grady Booch
