digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 18640] New: VisualD - First 5 minutes - Default debuginfo


          Issue ID: 18640
           Summary: VisualD - First 5 minutes - Default debuginfo
                    configuration emits warnings.
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: visuald
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: turkeyman gmail.com

I have a colleague who just tried out D for the first time.
He's a gamedev, so coming from VS, and expects a very high bar for quality.

He offered me some feedback which I think it worth passing on.

A thing I noticed is that '-gc' appears to be the default debuginfo selection,
and then there's compile warnings that it's deprecated. Does VisualD perform
well now with just -g?
No new user will understand why the distinction between -g and -gc... and
seeing a warning that's difficult to understand on a brand new project is not a
great first impression.
