digitalmars.D.learn - Installing Modules

All,

I'm very new to D.  I am wanting to install the SciD module 
(David Simcha's fork), but I don't know how to go about it.  Can 
you guide me?

Where does the code go?  How do I import it?

Thanks,

TJB

There are many ways to go about using modules, I will go over installing a module for Linux. Usually the simplest way to get started is to pass all files to the compiler (you use an import statement to import the modules). Build SciD as a library. $ dmd -lib -oflibscid.a all.d files.d for.d SciD.d Copy lib to /usr/local/lib Copy sciD source files in the same direcectory structure (propably starting with scid/) to /usr/local/src Installed. Create a main.d file somewhere: $ cat main.d import scid.something; void main() {} $ dmd -I/usr/local/src main.d Windows would be something different, however optlink doesn't have a standard set of locations to look for library files. you can also pass the library to dmd $ dmd -I/usr/local/src main.d libscid.a -- If it is in the same directory as main.d

Okay. I tried this. I think I am close. I followed the instructions that you gave (thanks btw)! But, I get this error message: $ dmd -I/usr/local/src main.d main.d(1): Error: module scid is in file 'scid.d' which cannot be read import path[0] = /usr/local/src import path[1] = /Users/name/dmd2/src/phobos import path[2] = /Users/name/dmd2/src/druntime/import Thoughts? Thanks! TJB

You don't import scid; as that is just a package, you need a module such as: import scid.matrix; but it will truely depend on which modules you need for the code you are writing.

Thank you for your patience with me. I now have the following simple test code: import scid.matrix; void main() {} Then I run and get the following error: $ dmd -I/usr/local/src main.d Undefined symbols: "_D4scid6matrix12__ModuleInfoZ", referenced from: _D4main12__ModuleInfoZ in main.o ld: symbol(s) not found collect2: ld returned 1 exit status --- errorlevel 1 Thank you for your help!

The command Jesse posted is missing a "-L-lscid" and you'll probably also need "-L-L/usr/local/lib" So the complete command should be: dmd -I/usr/local/src -L-L/usr/local/lib -L-lscid main.d Here's a short explanation of those flags: the "-L" prefix tells dmd to ignore this argument and pass it to the linker(ld). So in our case, "-lscid" and "-L/usr/local/lib" are passed to the linker. "-l" means link in a library, here 'scid'. The linker appends the 'lib' prefix and 'a' suffix for you, so it searches for a 'libscid.a' file. "-L" (passed to the linker!) adds a directory to the library search path. These are the directories which are searched by the linker when looking for the 'libscid.a' file.

Ah, you are right, though I selected /usr/local/lib as it is already part of LD's search path. but asking for the lib is still required (-L-lscid).

Brilliant. Works perfectly. Thanks for your help. You guys are awesome! TJB

OK. I now can compile a simple program that imports a module from the SciD library. How do I do something a little more interesting like initialize a vector or matrix and do some linear algebra with it? Thanks so much for your help. This forum is awesome! TJB

I'm not familiar with this library, you'll have to take a look through the documentation: https://github.com/kyllingstad/scid/wiki I see there is a matrix module http://www.kyllingen.net/code/scid/doc/scid_matrix.html import scid.matrix; void main() { auto m = matrix(5, 10); } Then go modify its values, and use some linalg functions with it: http://www.kyllingen.net/code/scid/doc/scid_linalg.html
