---a.d
void main(){}
---

---b.d
void main(){}
---

---main.d
import a,b;
---

rdmd main.d
(or dmd main.d a.d b.d)

=>b.d(1): Error: only one main allowed
the error message should show:
b.d(1): Error: only one main allowed (previously defined in a.d(1))

In more complex cases (with auto generated code or mixins etc), it can be hard
to trace down location of such main symbols, so compiler should show that.

I guess I should have been more persistent about error messages:

you wrote there:

 But maybe it doesn't matter all that much, the user can do a global search to
find the offending main function.
That can be hard in practice (in my cases I auto-generate my main functions to add instrumentation code; or main could be in object file where we don't have source code etc). And user shouldn't have to do such global search when compiler knows this information. -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------
