digitalmars.D.bugs - -ofd: outputs to root directory instead of current on that drive
- Stewart Gordon <smjg_1998 yahoo.com> Dec 05 2005
Using DMD 0.140, Windows 98SE. If you do dmd something.d -ofd:something.exe or simply dmd something.d -ofd: then the output goes to the root directory of drive d, regardless of what directory is current on that drive. It should be outputting to the directory that is current on the drive. Similarly, dmd something.d -ofd:tests\ should output to the directory called tests under the current directory on drive d. (Aside from this bug, another issue is that the trailing backslash is required, otherwise it creates tests.exe regardless of the presence or absence of a directory called tests. Is this supposed to happen?) Strangely, it correctly interprets the same notation used to specify the name of a source file. If I do it on -od, then it places the .obj file in the right place, but the linker has trouble finding it. So it would appear that the whole bug is in the linker....
