digitalmars.D - libcurl

I sat down to write an announcement to the libcurl mailing list that we 
have support for it starting with 2.053. To my surprise, when I tried to 
provide a link to the documentation, there wasn't any available.

Furthermore, when I tried to generate documentation it came messed up. 
Obviously ddoc had never been run against the module.

What should we do? Fix this or wait until Jonas' D native bindings come up?


Thanks,

Andrei

Would be great if you found the time to make a pull request with fixed documentation for etc/c/curl. Generate the html document however you wish and I'll take care of integrating it with the general template etc. Thanks, Andrei

It seems to be on digitalmars.com now so I guess you did it yourself :) /Jonas

Walter did, last night. I mentioned to him that he should tell you in order to avoid duplicate work, but he must've forgotten (as did I), so I'm glad you looked it up. Andrei

I'm slowly going through all the suggestions I received in the "Curl wrapper" thread. I still haven't fixed the recycling buffers though. /Jonas

Great. It's very exciting that once that is done, a two-stroke download program that transfers data at optimal speed is a five-liner: import std.exception, std.net.curl, std.stdio; void main(string[] args) { enforce(args == 2, "Usage: " ~ args[0] ~ " url"); foreach (chunk; Http.byChunk(args[1])) { stdout.rawWrite(chunk); } } If we play our cards right, then (a) the memory allocated will be constant in the size of the input, (b) reading and writing will not block each other (except when buffers are full or starved), and (c) transfer rate will be optimal, i.e. never slower than the minimum of input and output rate. I'm really looking forward to this. Andrei

http://www.digitalmars.com/d/2.0/phobos/etc_c_curl.html I did pretty much a whack job on it, merely converting the existing comments to ddoc comments, just to fill the void. It could definitely benefit from a more professional take on it - 1. providing sections such as License:, Copyright:, etc., like other Phobos modules 2. include hyperlinks to where to get libcurl, online documentation for curl, etc.
