digitalmars.D.ide - [IDE pr0n] Hack DMD in Coedit

A small promotion video that shows several aspects of my IDE 
through a short hack of DMD. The hack consists of a warning on 
partial static array initialization.

Aspects:

1/ Custom tools
===============

DMD is build with a user defined tool[1]. A shell script that 
builds DMD and Phobos is launched.

2/ Completion
=============

DMD is a makefile project. It's not supported as a Coedit project 
so to get DCD completion, the path to the sources must be added 
to the libman[2].
Also i use the integrated file explorer since the project 
inspector is useless here.

3/ Compiler Paths
=================

The hack is tested directly in the IDE. This is possible thanks 
to the feature allowing to define several D compilers[3] and to 
select which one is used in a particular context. The context 
here is the "runnable modules" [4]. I can test the hack in a 
module that's even not saved.
