OK, release 0.77 had some ... issues. I fixed some things up and 0.78 
should be a bit better. The changelog:
         - Rebuild: Removed some needless errors that could cause 
problems with
           using D-2 keywords in D-1 code.
         - Rebuild: Fixed -exec. (see ticket #203)
         - Rebuild: Documented -gui. (see ticket #180)
         - Fixed installation of debug libraries. (see ticket #185)
         - Substantially reduced the default verbosity. -v now gives the
           previous verbosity, -vv puts rebuild in verbose mode as well.
         - Rebuild: Allow general link flags in pragma(link) (for Mac OS X
           frameworks, etc.
         - Rebuild: -S with forward slashes now works on Windows. (see 
ticket
           #182)
         - defaulttargets with forward slashes now works on Windows.
         - Multiple '..' elements in section names will now be interpreted
           correctly. (see ticket #198)
         - Rebuild: Fixed library-linking problems.

The most user-visible difference is the reduced verbosity. I 
consistently get complaints about outputting the rebuild line, both from 
people with very long rebuild lines and from people who think that 
constitutes a complete rebuild every time. So, it's out the window. Use 
-v to see the commands run, use -vv to set rebuild to verbose mode too.

I'll repeat this: I'm running severely low on time (I'm now a graduate 
student), so I'm looking for help. Anything from handling tickets to 
porting help to anything else you can think of, I'd really appreciate.

As per usual, more information and downloads are available at

Would this make DerelictSDL on Mac OS X (via the SDL OS X Project Builder framework) work now? I think it would, but I'm not really much of a build guru, so I ask.

Thanks for all your work. DSSS is probably the single greatest asset to the D Community after DMD/GDC/LLVMDC (it||them)selves.

DerelictSDL uses runtime loading IIRC, this just allows you to link frameworks at compile time ... knowing almost zero about frameworks on OS X, I have no idea what middle ground is necessary, so the only answer I can give is "maybe". - Gregor Richards

Hmm, I'll have to try with the newer DSSS then. It didn't work before (didn't work with fink, either) and now what you say gives me hope... Or I'll have to manually hack the heck out of Derelict myself. Some of the OS X stuff is a little funky. Gives me the feeling that they're of the "Either use Objective-C like the rest of us or get lost!" opinion over there at Apple.

DSSS isn't going to affect being able to use DerelictSDL on Mac. The problem is the fact that SDLmain can't really be used with a D executable, but it does some important setup on Mac. There are a couple of workarounds documented in the Derelict forum and people have been able to use DerelictSDL on Mac. FWIW, SDL 1.3 does away with SDLmain altogether, so once it's released and Derelict updated this problem goes away.

This may or may not be your issue, but if you had changed your oneatatime setting in the rebuild config then re-installing dsss would overwrite that. So maybe you just need to re-edit your oneatatime back to "no"? --bb

Thanks for you reply, I set oneatatime=yes for DSSS 0.75 and DSSS 0.78, 0.75 is more quickly to build Windows library. set oneatatime=no may be cause larger executable size. -- yidabu <yidabu.spam gmail.com> http://www.dsource.org/projects/dwin D -(D Chinese): http://www.d-programming-language-china.org/ http://bbs.d-programming-language-china.org/ http://dwin.d-programming-language-china.org/ http://scite4d.d-programming-language-china.org/

Rebuild ignores D files in the package 'std', since those should be packages provided by the standard library. You really oughtn't to name things 'std' anyway, and putting 'X11' in std.c.linux doesn't make much sense regardless. - Gregor Richards

Is that behavior new with DSSS 0.78? What does that mean for Tangobos, which is not the standard library but is completely in the std package? --bb

This is not new. If you're using Tango, you (should) use the rebuild profile for Tango, which doesn't ignore the std package since that's not part of Tango. The only reason it has to actively ignore the std package is because they're .d files instead of the .di files they ought to be. - Gregor Richards

Makefiles are absolutely more flexible. As flexible as a noose. But rebuild traces dependencies, and Makefiles don't: Would you have me stop tracing dependencies, making rebuild entirely useless, or stop ignoring std, making it rebuild the entire core library every time you build anything? - Gregor Richards

 Seems it takes a long time to build lib under Windows.

This may or may not be your issue, but if you had changed your oneatatime setting in the rebuild config then re-installing dsss would overwrite that. So maybe you just need to re-edit your oneatatime back to "no"? --bb

Thanks for you reply, I set oneatatime=yes for DSSS 0.75 and DSSS 0.78, 0.75 is more quickly to build Windows library. set oneatatime=no may be cause larger executable size.

I have to say, this new DSSS does seem a lot slower at building to me too. I'll do some more exact measurements later, but my DWT-using exe now seems to compile as much slower. It feels about as slow slow as DSSS 0.75 did running a --full build, except now it's that slow when not doing --full. Did anything change in how DSSS compiles things between 0.75 and 0.78? --bb

Here are some timings with my app: Takes 2:48 to "dsss build" with 0.78 Takes 2:48 to "dsss build -full" with 0.78 Takes 0:35 to "dsss build" with 0.76pre Takes 0:35 to "dsss build -full" with 0.76pre Takes 0:36 to "dss build" after a "dsss clean" with 0.76pre So two strange things are 1) that 0.78 is so much slower and 2) that -full and not -full seem to have the same speed in both cases. --bb
