digitalmars.D - workaround for `The module 'foo.bar' is already defined` when

reply Timothee Cour via Digitalmars-d <digitalmars-d puremagic.com> writes:
```
dmd -shared -oflibfoo.so a1.d a2.d
dmd -ofmain -L-lfoo a2.d main.d
./main
```
gives runtime error: `The module 'foo.bar' is already defined in 'main'`

How would I work around this error?

Use case: allow partial recompilation of a binary without rebuilding
everything to optimize compile time for fast edit debug cycles.

NOTE: this is on linux, and the above simple case doesn't reproduce the error, but my test case is similar albeit from a larger program that's hard to reduce. the code that crashes is in druntime: /** * Check for module collisions. A module in a shared library collides * with an existing module if it's ModuleInfo is interposed (search * symbol interposition) by another DSO. Therefor two modules with the * same name do not collide if their DSOs are in separate symbol resolution * chains. */ void checkModuleCollisions(in ref dl_phdr_info info, in immutable(ModuleInfo)*[] modules, in void[] copyRelocSection) nothrow Could someone please explain: * what that means * what's the simplest example that would exhibit this error * what's a workaround ? (where i want to do partial recompilation)
