#defines and D language
« on: March 29, 2007, 09:11:34 am »
Seems like the compiler options dialog doesn't work well when setting "" as the #define flag...

Since there are no #defines in the D language (only in C/C++), there is no proper value for the flag. I set it to a bogus value and it "works", but not sure if that's the best workaround ? But before we have support for multiple programming languages, it might do. (at least it closes the bug reported with the compiler interface...)

Your patch seems to do the trick. If you tested it and it works too, then just commit it.
Better support for other languages/compilers will come after version 1.0 is released.

I would just use a more descriptive name for the switch instead of "\a". Something like "NoDefinesAllowed" :).
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

OK, that's a better name... :-)

But I thought of something else, D doesn't have #defines but it does have "versions". So instead of just making that area unusable, we might rename the field for defines into versions when setting it for a D compiler. Then it's just a matter of using the -version or -fversion compiler switches...

So where for C/C++ you would set "__WXMAC__" and it would pass -D__WXMAC__ to the compiler, in D you would set "__WXMAC__" and it would pass -version=__WXMAC__ to it.

This define/version is then used by the conditionally compiled code like:
Code: c++
#ifdef __WXMAC__
    ....
#endif

Code: d
version (__WXMAC__)
{
    ....
}
