https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12723 Issue ID: 12723 Summary: Support compiling C/C++ files in D projects Product: D Version: D2 Hardware: All OS: Windows Status: NEW Severity: enhancement Priority: P1 Component: VisualD Assignee: nobody puremagic.com Reporter: turkeyman gmail.com It would be nice if VisualD projects could support compiling C/C++ code in addition to D code when .c/.cpp files are added to the project, in just the same way that C++ projects fall back to C mode when compiling .c files. It is common that a .c file finds its way into D projects. Druntime has a .c and a .asm file. phobos compiles zlib together with the rest of the D code. The idea is not to support full blown C projects with all the bells and whistles, but to make it possible to express such a project where there is just a couple of C files along with the majority D code. It's very awkward to split these up into multiple project files in Visual Studio. I suggest: Win64 - invoke MSC, and then supply the result .obj file to DMD as it builds the D code. Win32 - invoke DMC, same story. GCC - GCC is always present alongside GDC, and most of the same build flags are supported between compilers. LDC - invoke clang? I think as a goal, it should be possible to express druntime and phobos in a visualdproj without any awkward mischief. --
