digitalmars.D.learn - New to D: Building multiple files

reply chris <cmjreyes gmail.com> writes:
Alright so I'm not too familiar with building D or having to build
multiple files from the command line (Java usually takes care of
that). Basically I have a small game I put together as  a test
project. Here's the structure:

clo/clo.d
clo/Main.d
clo/common/GameState.d

clo is in module clo , while GameState is in module clo.common.

Main.d imports both clo and clo.common

I'm using the latest 'Easy D' installation on windows (so I've been
building simple single files with dsss build (filename). I'm just
assuming building Main.d would grab the other stuff and build that
(like Java or C#), but I get the following.

C:\Users\me\Projects\clo> dsss build Main.d
Main.d => Main
+ C:\dmd\dsss\bin\rebuild.exe -Idsss_imports\ -I. -S.\ -
IC:\dmd\dsss\include\d -
SC:\dmd\dsss\lib\  -IC:\dmd\dsss\include\d -SC:\dmd\dsss\lib  -
oqdsss_objs\D  Ma
in.d -ofMain
Command C:\dmd\dsss\bin\rebuild.exe returned with code 1, aborting.
Error: Command failed, aborting.

Listing all the files to build doesn't prove to be much better:

C:\Users\me\Projects\clo> dsss build -v Main.d clo.d commo
n\GameState.d
Main.d => Main
+ C:\dmd\dsss\bin\rebuild.exe -Idsss_imports\ -I. -S.\ -
IC:\dmd\dsss\include\d -
SC:\dmd\dsss\lib\ -v  -IC:\dmd\dsss\include\d -SC:\dmd\dsss\lib  -
oqdsss_objs\D
 Main.d -ofMain
parse     Main
meta      Main
import    clo   (clo.d)
Command C:\dmd\dsss\bin\rebuild.exe returned with code 1, aborting.
Error: Command failed, aborting.

(I jsut guessed -v was verbose)

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

How do you import the modules?
You must specify the correct name, i.e. import clo.clo;

Oh and you should get familiar with the dsss.conf file.
This is the way you normally build your project.

I just import clo; and import clo.common; when using stuff in either
of those files, I hope that's correct.

Also thanks for the link, I was going to ask about .conf files.

you probably mean it is in package clo.

You're welcome.

I don't know if dsss supports building without a config file. Just doing 'rebuild Main.d' should work. Or 'dmd Main.d clo.d common\GameState.d'. Make sure that Gamestate.d has a 'module common.GameState;' declaration.

Yes DSSS can build without a conf file. I think it basically passes the command to rebuild.

I think the problem here is that you are trying to build from within the package hierarchy. Your imports aren't being found because the compiler (or DSSS?) is searching for clo\clo\clo.d and clo\clo\common\GameState.d. You have two options. 1) CD one level up to C:\Users\me\Projects and run the command like so: dsss build clo/Main.d 2) stay where you are and tell the compiler where to find the imports via the -I switch (sort of like the Java classpath) dsss build Main.d -I.. Using .. here will cause it to look in C:\Users\me\Projects for the clo hierarchy. I second the recommendation that you start using DSSS configuration files to manage project builds. I tend to structure my D projects like so: - ProjectName - src (project-specific package tree) - MyPackage - MySubPackage - AnotherSubPackage - import (third-party packages) - libPackage (like, maybe, derelict) - anotherLibPackage - dist (the binary and other distributables) Then, in the ProjectName directory, I keep a dsss.conf file with the build configuration. Something like this: [src/MyPackage/Main.d] target=dist/MyApp buildflags=-Iimport -clean Then, from the ProjectName directory I just run dsss build DSSS reads the configuration file and does its thing.

Yea I just realized it follows the directory structure and not some
arbitrary system I made up.

Thanks for the .config info, I was just putting one together of
similar structure, this'll absolutely help.

Much appreciated
