DMD 1.029 and 1.030 do not work because they crash in anonymous classes. DMD 1.028 works.

No, it was about the DSSS option in the DSSS compiler profile.

3 MB is without the use of UPX... however Who defines 'too big' ? What is the limit? What rules do you apply to find that number? If you have hundreds of source files (tango+dwt+dwtx) it cannot go into a 250k executable. So what is small enough for you? And why should you use JFace if you want a mini app? If you would use a java application that is based on JFace, you need the Java runtime + SWT libs + Jface libs + SWT DLLs/SOs. The compiled DWT binary has all the needed functionality in itself. SWT and JFace is not optimized for small D applications. As in SWT so are withing JFace many internal dependencies between the classes. So even the little HelloWorld will contain the biggest part of SWT or JFace. Perhaps DDL can be an option, if big parts of the code can be moved into external libs. But still i don't know if you would count that to the executable size. If you want to distribute your app as a small zip file, you would still need to put the libs into that zip.

Very strange. But I won't complain. :) So this happens with the most recent dsss in svn? -JJR

I tested it with the 0.75 release.

I think it's too big is because:
http://svn.dsource.org/projects/dwt/downloads/win32/examples/ .
all the examples of less than 300kb.
and http://hg.dsource.org/projects/dwt-samples examples size is between 2.5
~ 6m.

Hmmm, that is a significant difference. And it doesn't look like those executables are compressed. Thanks for pointing this out. This bears some looking into to. -JJR

I looked into this. These are packed with ASPack 2.11 which causes most of them to be shrunk by about 75% or more. I'm testing ASPack on some of the Dwt 3.4M7 examples right now to see how small they get. -JJR

In what section do you put "oneatatime=yes"... I'm confused because in the past doing this made the compiletimes much longer. This is why oneatatime=off was originally suggested. I tested setting it to "yes" today and it made the compile time extraordinarily long again. Perhaps you are saying that the library takes a long time to compile, but the executable compile time is fast? -JJR

yes, once put "oneatatime=yes", library takes a long time to compile, even takes several hours to compile the dwt-addons svn, but the executable compile time is fast. -- yidabu <yidabu.spam gmail.com> http://www.dsource.org/projects/dwin D -(D Chinese): http://www.d-programming-language-china.org/ http://bbs.d-programming-language-china.org/ http://dwin.d-programming-language-china.org/ http://scite4d.d-programming-language-china.org/
