digitalmars.D.learn - ldc on a raspberry pi 3 running freebsd

reply Decabytes <mycontributiontotheworld gmail.com> writes:
I've been playing around in D for a bit and I'm enjoying it so 
far. I've also been testing out freebsd on a Raspberry Pi 3. I 
noticed that there is actually a package for LDC on the raspberry 
pi 3, and thought it would be fun to play around with D on an ARM 
platform.

I installed it with "pkg install ldc", but embarrassingly I'm not 
actually sure where the compiler is. ldc isn't a recognized 
action on the command line, and I've hunted around my 
/usr/local/llvm10/ directory but I'm having difficulty finding 
anything that looks like what I'm looking for. Does anyone have 
any experience with ldc on freebsd that could help me out?

It is often called `ldc2` so give that a try. btw I run gdc on my raspberry pi 3 from the raspbian distro package and it is pretty nice too. though ldc will have newer D frontend features as the version they have packaged of gdc is a touch old, both work pretty well.

ldc2 is the winner thank you! I'd like to get gdc and dmd up and running to at some point, but seeing as they aren't packaged up it will prob require building from source, which I'm not totally sure how to do or if it's even feasible on a raspberry pi 3 with only 1gb of ram. I wonder if it would be easier to load up freebsd on my main desktop get dmd and gdc running there, and then cross compile for arm64. Who knows! I probably won't be trying it for awhile but if anyone has any experience with this as well I'm all ears. Thanks again for the help

Unfortunately, DMD doesn't support ARM. -- /Jacob Carlborg

Found this on the internet: https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/list-of-the-installed-files-of-a-package.66372/ looks like: pkg info -l name-of-package It should show you were it put the ldc command and what it's called. -Steve

Aha "pkg info ldc2 | grep "bin"" yielded the location in /usr/local/bin/ldc2. Thanks!
