digitalmars.D.ide - codeblocks for D2 on 64-bit Ubuntu 10.10

All:

I am attempting to learn D2 and needed to set up an IDE. From what I
can see, CodeBlocks is the best we have at the moment. I had trouble
getting it set up, so I wanted to share what I've done to make it
work. I'm sure it's not the "right" way, so anyone who knows better,
please chime in.

Go to Settings -> Compiler and Debugger -> Other settings -> Advanced
Options and delete all the linker commands (save them somewhere to be
able to restore later, just in case) and change the compile single
file to object setting to:

$compiler -v $options $includes $file -of$exe_dir/$exe_name

You may also be able to specify dmd as the linker instead of gcc and
have better luck ... I will try that later since I assume there is an
advantage to linking in a separate step.

Also, under Settings -> Search Directories, add:

/usr/include/d/dmd/druntime
/usr/include/d/dmd/phobos

One last thing ... the command above is building 32-bit. I tested
adding -m64 and it worked fine and built a 64-bit executable. Test by
executing "file {filename}.o" and you'll get output like:

TestD.o: ELF 64-bit LSB relocatable, x86-64, version 1 (GNU/Linux),
not stripped

This seems to work, but as I say, I'm brand new to D ... coming from
Java where everything is dynamically linked and tool support is
excellent. Hope it helps some other newbies.

Thanks for writing that down (I personally never got CB to really work with D ;)) However: Codeblocks is *not* the best, it doesn't support D properly, it only sometimes happens to kind of work because D is somewhat similar to C++. On Linux I'd suggest to use Eclipse+DDT instead, see http://code.google.com/a/eclipselabs.org/p/ddt/ When I tested it, autocompletion and "find definition of this" (ctrl-click) worked well.
