Yay! Any thoughts about opening runtime library?

And it’s beyond 100+ now. Also I see that you have quite a reputation in compilers ;)

Yes, I just didn't get around to it yet. I didn't think anyone was interested :-)

It's been a great thread. Everyone was very nice. Now that it's gone from the front page, here's the direct link: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17129678

Whoa, I didn't even realize D was now used in some of the DMC++ source. That's a very cool switch-around from when D was implemented entirely in C++. Must be very satisfying. "C++, now powered by D" :)

At last the Digital Mars stand C library sources. Maybe now things can be be fixed more easily, although win32 is dead now. Now snn has to be compiled for mscoff32 (so not possible with DMC, right ?) and generate DWARF2 debug info and finally GDB could be used under win32, giving a working, out of the box, MS-free, package, just like current one but with more coherent object type. Ahhh i was forgetting, the linker... Possible before 2020 ?

Maybe. I was thinking about using DasBetterC for the DMC runtime library instead of C :-)

That has been a desire for a bunch of us for a while now. Just because we /might/ be able to get it to 64bit.

The LLVM linker, LLD, works pretty well on Windows. -- /Jacob Carlborg
