digitalmars.D.ide - Compiler setup in Descent

Hi

I was wondering if anyone can help? I have download and installed
Eclipse 3.4.1 and Descent 0.5.3.20081026, but I am unable to setup the
compiler. 

The docs on dsource say there should be an option to add a compiler;
Windows -> Preferences -> D -> Installed Compilers, but this isn't
present. I have Windows -> Preferences -> D -> Compilers but no
ability to add a new compiler. Am I setting things up correctly?

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Ouch, sorry. I removed that preference entry in the last nightly build (it was giving more trouble than solutions), tried to remember to update the docs but apparently forgot. :-) I removed that section from the wiki, and updated this page: http://dsource.org/projects/descent/wiki/ConfiguringProject Note that Descent doesn't compile a project for you. It just uses include paths to make semantic analysis and to be able to offer you autocompletion, go to definition, etc. You can, however, configure an external tool: http://dsource.org/projects/descent/wiki/CompilingPrograms

Thanks, I've managed to compile a program using rebuild, but descent isn't analysing correctly, even though I've added the include path it is showing 'int' as not correctly spelled. See screenshots attached. Gide

You need to utilize the "D Spelling Engine" in General > Editors under preferences IIRC.

Thanks for the tip, the setting was in Window -> Peferences -> General -> Editors -> Text Editors -> Spelling -> "D spelling engine". Gide

I sorta thought you would know to go to the preferences pane, which would bring that down to General -> Editors -> Text Editors -> Spelling. As it is, spelling was only added in Eclipse 3.3, and as such not many people know about it (I've used Eclipse since 3.1, so I've been 'round the block so to speak).

Go to Window > Preferences, which opens the preferences dialog. Then navigate to General (top node) > Editors > Text Editors > Spelling and choose "D Spelling Engine" at the top of this window from the combo box (instead of "Default spelling engine")
