https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12572 Issue ID: 12572 Summary: pragma(lib, "curl") and -Lcurl broken Product: D Version: D2 Hardware: All OS: Linux Status: NEW Severity: critical Priority: P1 Component: DMD Assignee: nobody puremagic.com Reporter: thecybershadow gmail.com Currently it appears to be impossible to link against libcurl (at least on Ubuntu 13.10 x64) without manually invoking the linker. When adding pragma(lib, "curl") to a program, or by adding -Lcurl to dmd or rdmd's command-line parameter, the program will still fail to link (the linker complains about not being able to find symbols exported by libcurl). Running dmd with -v reveals that it invokes the linker as follows: gcc test.o -o test -m64 -L/etc/../lib -Xlinker --export-dynamic -lcurl -l:libphobos2.a -lpthread -lm -lrt Moving the "-lcurl" parameter to the end, as follows, resolves the linker problems: gcc test.o -o test -m64 -L/etc/../lib -Xlinker --export-dynamic -l:libphobos2.a -lpthread -lm -lrt -lcurl I'm marking this issue as critical since it makes std.net.curl incompatible with rdmd, and it forces users to switch to a different method of building their programs should they decide to use std.net.curl at some point in development. --
