https://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=12327 Summary: [IMPLEMENTATION] Target fields in frontend should be private to target.c Product: D Version: D2 Platform: All OS/Version: All Status: NEW Severity: normal Priority: P2 Component: DMD AssignedTo: nobody puremagic.com ReportedBy: ibuclaw ubuntu.com --- Comment #0 from Iain Buclaw <ibuclaw ubuntu.com> 2014-03-09 05:47:04 PDT --- There are a number of isXXX fields in mars.h (struct Params). Some do nothing, others control code generation or semantics or the language, others the ABI. In all cases regardless, these should not be public to the frontend, and go against at least GDC's goals to be a platform agnostic compiler. What changes that need to happen are that any place where isLinux, isOSX, is checked in the frontend should be replaced with a Target hook describing the target behaviour, eg vectorSupported (true/false), prefixLabel ("_" on OSX, for instance) - some cod examples I can think of that may need better names. Once this transition has been completed, DMD can make these private to its own target.c - which allows other compiler backends to omit the setting these values in their own glue if they so wish. -- Configure issuemail: https://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------
