I don't have an HN or Reddit account so I'll reply here. First, thanks. But second, all I really did was the last mile stuff. Lots of people did nearly all of the work before I came along, which I hope I made enough mention of in my blog post. I've also opened a bug report for GDC: https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=99691 But it looks like Iain was already on it, so I suspect we really want to thank him more than me for the GDC parts! (You also don't have to call me Dr. -- it's there just because it's my personal/professional website and I happen to be employed as an academic.)

Hi Brian, Very nice. Seeing that pledge/unveil are declared in unistd.d, your work should probably land here: https://github.com/dlang/druntime/blob/master/src/core/sys/posix/unistd.d#L2556 Cheers, Johan

Yes, I think so. People who program on OpenBSD expect pledge and unveil to always be available, and so having them in druntime is better than a separate module.

Kai did the initial druntime/phobos bindings. I fixed them after a number years of the port going stale, and removed pretty much all platform-specific bindings from phobos in the process (brk still remains, but I think it's better just to deprecate that experimental allocator). The all non-gdc bits had been upstreamed with the last remants sitting uncommitted on a VM waiting for the last few failing tests of the testsuite to be fixed. I think it would be a fair attribute Kai and I for the 95% that was enough to get ldc and gdc working respectively. It was only a matter of time before someone would port dmd as well. :-)

Sounds good to me!

No problem, Brian. I just assumed that since the article used Dr, that you 
preferred it.

It's a good idea to sign up on Reddit and HN, if only to help support your work 
and articles.
