digitalmars.D.ide - newb question -- how to get descent to build stuff

Hi,

I downloaded eclipse for C++ developers, and added descent plugin, and I 
configured the compiler/include directories.  I get auto-completion, which 
is cool, but it never builds anything!

I tried to follow the directions on descent's web page.  I downloaded 
eclipse 3.4

Any ideas?

Hi Steve, Here it is explained: http://dsource.org/projects/descent/wiki/CompilingPrograms A better way to compile programs is currently being developed.

I'd also recommend anyone to use the latest nightly build, which is much stable and faster than the release version. I'll make another release when support for D2 is finished.

how much trouble would it be to have another update site that is maintained as the nightly build so that just a normal update pulls it in?

Not much, but maybe a bug I didn't notice slips into the nightly build, which is bad for a "release". Plus I don't update the nightly build that often... But I think two update sites for a same project is problematic, because the user would still have to uninstall the "release" plugins and install the "nightly builds" one. I'll probably just make nightly builds work as normal releases which are listed in the update site, maybe with an odd minor version number (and move the update to http://downloads.dsource.org)

That's good. However, in the meantime, you may want to dispense with the requirement that you configure a compiler. It seems awfully confusing that I must configure a compiler to use descent, but descent will never compile anything... In the case where eclipse requires the compiler configuration, you should at least put a warning that an extra configuration needs to be done in order to compile from eclipse. -Steve
