Hi,

in hope that this is not a dead newsgroup and to prevent it from being

IDE's are quite important for programming languages.

what tools are you using for D? I develop using Eclipse with Descent. It's
quite nice, but also still has a lot of bugs. ^^
Sometimes is crashes with a Nullpointer especially when it should show the
synchronize view. So merging is quite painful sometimes. Sometimes it also
crashes or runs into 100% CPU usage. It will still need some time until this
all get fixed. But Autocompletion works already quite nice and I also
haven't run into problems with the Outline. The Formatter is good. For
Debugging it's somehow better to use directly the GDB or to write more and
more unittests.
So which IDE's do u use for develop in D?

I use the DCode editor and the command line.

I use Descent. I think the semantic analyzer (or what to call it) is amazing (when it's not slow). It's great that it can catch almost all compiler errors before you compile.

I use Descent as well, but it kind of bugs me that when I get errors I can't 
just double click on them as I was used when using Poseidon.
Also, descent hangs from time to time but I can't pinpoint it just yet. One 
thing I do know is that until now it always happens after I built the code 
at least once.

What does that do? (It's been a while since I used poseidon)

Yes, or is incredibly slow, I have the same problem.

Ok, in the console, now I follow.

Also, is it possible to add a button/menu item to (list of thinngs I miss 
from Poseidon)

1. back up a project to a specified folder
2. open cmd at project folder
3. open explorer at project folder
4. more keyword specific highlighting (It looks too bland atm  :P )

1-3. If those are available in Eclipse then I'm pretty sure you can bind them to whatever key you like. I suggest looking at some Eclipse documentation. 4. No, I don't think so, there was some talk about it though.

I haven't found these in eclipse yet. But I think I'll just make them myself as external tools I did find that it needs a plug-in to have a 'save all' button : ( Btw, selecting 'build before launch' actually saves everyting before running bud or any other custom tool.

It certainly is for Java. I find things like this ... protected final String decodeNonEmptyOctetStringOnSecondBitAsUtf8String() throws FastInfosetException, IOException { decodeNonEmptyOctetStringOnSecondBitAsUtf8CharArray(); return new String(_charBuffer, 0, _charBufferLength); } and that is a ridiculous amount of keyboarding to do.
 what tools are you using for D? 

I use a decent text editor with no more tools than colorization of text and good searching facilities, combined with Bud and the command line. I haven't found the need for the extra tools/features that an IDE provides when coding in D. However, I concede that a lot of people tend to rely on those. -- Derek Parnell Melbourne, Australia skype: derek.j.parnell
