Hi,

What is in the "dm" directory that is part of the "dmd.zip" file
that contains the dmd compiler and such.  Is it needed on a linux
system?

Thanks,

--- urxae urxae:~/opt/dm$ file `find` .: directory ./bin: directory ./bin/lib.exe: MS-DOS executable PE for MS Windows (console) Intel 80386 32-bit ./bin/make.exe: MS-DOS executable PE for MS Windows (console) Intel 80386 32-bit ./lib: directory ./lib/snn.lib: Microsoft Visual C library --- So it contains two Windows executables and a MSVC library. I'd guess nothing on Linux really need those, unless you plan on cross-compiling (perhaps with Wine?)...

Handy files from the Digital Mars C++ distribution needed by Windows DMD.

No, the Linux DMD works with gcc.
