hi, im trying to interface a cpp class. I'd like to interface a 
bigger library and I'm trying to figure out the minimum effort.

--- c++ part:
#include <iostream>
class some_class {
public:
   static some_class* __ctor();
   some_class();
   ~some_class();
   void some_method();
};
some_class* some_class::__ctor() {
   auto thiz = new some_class();
   std::cout << "hello from __ctor, thiz:" << thiz << std::endl;
   return thiz;
}
some_class::some_class() { std::cout << "some_class constructor, 
this:" << this << std::endl; }
some_class::~some_class() { std::cout << "some_class destructor, 
this:" << this << std::endl; }
void some_class::some_method() {
   std::cout << "some_class some_method, this:" << this << 
std::endl;
}

--- d part:
extern (C++) {
   class some_class {
     final this();
     final ~this();
     final void some_method();
   }
}
void main() {
   some_class someClass = new some_class(); // works, __ctor() 
gets called, and it calls the constructor.
   someClass.some_method; // works
   destroy(someClass); // crashes (SIGSEGV) inside lifetime.d 
rt_finalize2()
}

I could do the instancing/destruction by functions and write a 
custom d class that calls these methods in this()/~this(). But I 
was hoping not needing to write a class in D AND in cpp. and i 
was hoping to save another step/level of instancing.

Any idea how to make the destructor of cpp compatible with 
"~this()"?

Thx in advance

This is what I used to do as special members like ctor/dtor did not supported in D before, but your example of using ctor is interesting. What about dtor - you allocate class using D GC but try to destroy it manually - namely this I guess gives you an error in rt_finalize2 because it tries to destroy object that has been destroyed.

hmm... I'm not sure. I compiled dmd and it's druntime in debug and I'm stepping through it. Seems there has to be a "ClassInfo" filled with data. In my case it's filled with garbage. So the call ClassInfo.destructor fails, because destructor is an invalid pointer. The GC.collect works, but doesn't call the destructor. https://github.com/dlang/druntime/blob/3d8d4a45c01832fb657c16a656b6e1566d77fb21/src/rt/lifetime.d#L1391 I know constructors and destructors are not supported. And I get that point for move/copy... constructors. But I don't get it for simple construction and destruction. Markus

I've made a guess that more c++ support were added in the last frontend version, well I was wrong
