When compiling GtkD <https://github.com/gtkd-developers/GtkD> with dmd 2.063.2,
the resulting static libraries size increases a lot.

GtkD-2 (HEAD) built with dmd 2.062 (64-bit):
   libgstreamerd-2.a (3,3M)
   libgtkd-2.a       (35M)
   libgtkdgda-2.a    (1021K)
   libgtkdgl-2.a     (492K)
   libgtkdsv-2.a     (1,3M)

GtkD-2 (HEAD) built with dmd 2.063.2 (64-bit):
   libgstreamerd-2.a (14M)
   libgtkd-2.a       (138M)
   libgtkdgda-2.a    (4,9M)
   libgtkdgl-2.a     (3,0M)
   libgtkdsv-2.a     (5,8M)

It looks like this is being caused by a change/bug? in phobos/druntime.

It seems that the problem comes from the object file generation.

i.e. at GtkD project, the file "src/cairo/Types.d"
<https://github.com/gtkd-developers/GtkD/blob/master/src/cairo/Types.d>

$ dmd -c -O -m64 -Isrc src/cairo/Types.d

Built with dmd 2.062 (64-bit):
Types.o  (4.6K)

Built with dmd 2.063.2 (64-bit):
Types.o  (149K)

I was using git bisect with dmd, but couldn't find the commit that introduced
the bug. As it turns out i was running the tests with the phobos lib from
2.063.

And building gtkD with dmd 2.063 in combination with the phobos libs and
sources from 2.062 the size of the GtkD lib is back to ~35M.

The first Phobos commit that causes the huge library size is:

https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/phobos/commit/337f268cf1e24a25728eea417c4a76a907eec21e

Before that change the GtkD lib size is ~35M and after it's ~144M.

Only checking out the latest Phobos HEAD and reverting
337f268cf1e24a25728eea417c4a76a907eec21e the GtkD lib is still ~125M so there
are other commits that have an similar affect.

I believe the following suggestion should improve the situation:

I found the other phobos commit that caused the large lib:

https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/phobos/commit/4f5079e4f8d38e1d469e4b28303553f36f49e33b

reverting both:
https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/phobos/commit/337f268cf1e24a25728eea417c4a76a907eec21e
and
https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/phobos/commit/4f5079e4f8d38e1d469e4b28303553f36f49e33b

leaves me with a Gtkd lib of ~36M, using dmd 2.063.2

This is just a wild guess, but could it be caused by the use of std.format in
the unittests? I know that std.format is quite template-heavy; even a single
use of it can trigger the instantiation of quite a large number of templates.

It looks like these issues were all caused by my pull request. Well don't I
feel like a bastard now. :)

I do hope this is fixed in the compiler rather than to have to hack around it
in Phobos.

These changes have also caused bug 10631. I think these issues would have same root. -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------
