I'm having some strange problems compiling a project. I'm currently using
Poseidon to write and compile code. At one point (after including OpenGL
extensions from Derelict) I just couldn't get it to compile anymore. So I tried
using bud from the command line, and poof! It worked. But then I thought I'd
make bud collect the obj files in a single directory, so I added the -odObjs
switch.. but that gave me a similar error as poseidon did. The error returned
is:

C:\D\Logos>bud main.d -Tmain.exe -odtest

Still, if I compile using:
bud main.d -Tmain.exe

It works perfectly. What is going on here?

I suspect it is trying to link old object files. Although the -od will pace all the new object files into a single directory, it doesn't mean that the linker will look there. Can you try a couple of things... First try using the -clean -full switches. This will force all source to be recompiled and it will remove the object files after a successful link. Secondly, if the problem still persists, use the -V switch to get a very verbose output. I can use that output to see the actions it is taking and have a better idea about what is going on. Personally, I never use the -od switch as I don't care where the object files are temporarily stored. However, if your source is in read-only directories you still need to specify a writable work area for object files using the -od switch. -- Derek Parnell Melbourne, Australia skype: derek.j.parnell
