digitalmars.D - dmd -Wl=comma_separated_linker_flags (cf clang++ -Wl,

reply Timothee Cour via Digitalmars-d <digitalmars-d puremagic.com> writes:
question 1:

is there a way to pass linker flags?
dmd -Wl=comma_separated_linker_flags
eg:
dmd -Wl=-lbar,-Ldir,--export-dynamic,-pie

(same functionality as clang++ -Wl,-lbar,-Ldir,--export-dynamic,-pie)

If not could we support it? Would make a lot of things easier.

question 2:

Furthermore, on linux, not sure I can pass the -pie flag to dmd ; currently
this works:

```
dmd -of=${filelib}.o -c ${FLAGS} fun.d
clang++ -o ${filelib} -pie ${filelib}.o -Wl,-lphobos2,--export-dynamic
```

but not:
dmd -of=${filelib} ${FLAGS} -L-pie -L--export-dynamic fun.d

with question 1 solved, this should automatically work via:
dmd -of=${filelib} ${FLAGS} -Wl=-pie,--export-dynamic fun.d

Just use shell expansions? dmd -Wl,-{lbar,Ldir,-export-dynamic,pie}

linker flag is prefix is `-L` e.g. `-L-lbar` to link bar.

relying on the shell (especially involving arrays) seems like a bad
idea: not portable, easy to mess up:

`dmd -L{-lbar,-Ldir,--export-dynamic}` works but what if it's stored in $lflags:

lflags="-lbar,-Ldir,--export-dynamic"

the function to convert $lflags to a dmd-appropriate flag is not so
simple; what do you suggest for that case?

You can pass multiple -L flags: dmd -L-lbar -L-Ldir -L--export-dynamic -- /Jacob Carlborg

I know, but that's inconvenient. Would make things a lot easier if we had something like what i suggested: `-Wl=comma_separated_linker_flags` advantages: could seemlessly use `comma_separated_linker_flags` with either dmd or rdmd (compile + link in 1 stage) or 2 stages (compile w dmd followed by link w clang [or ld]) or make it easier to migrate code from build tools from C echosystem, or integrate seemlessly with ldc etc.
