Module dmd.mars

Entry point for DMD.

This modules defines the entry point (main) for DMD, as well as related utilities needed for arguments parsing, path manipulation, etc... This file is not shared with other compilers which use the DMD front-end.




_Dmain(_param_0) Manual D main (for druntime initialization), which forwards to tryMain.
addDefaultVersionIdentifiers(params, tgt) Add default version identifier for dmd, and set the target platform in params.
createModule(file, libmodules) Creates the module based on the file provided
createModules(files, libmodules) Creates the list of modules based on the files provided
emitMakeDeps(params) Emit the makefile dependencies for the -makedeps switch
flushMixins() we want to write the mixin expansion file also on error, but there are too many ways to terminate dmd (e.g. fatal() which calls exit(EXIT_FAILURE)), so we can't rely on scope(exit) ... in tryMain() actually being executed so we add atexit(&flushMixins); for those fatal exits (with the GC still valid)
getenv_setargv(envvalue, args) Parses an environment variable containing command-line flags and append them to args.
main(argc, argv) DMD's entry point, C main.
parse_arch_arg(args, arch) Parse command line arguments for the last instance of -m32, -m64 or -m32mscoff to detect the desired architecture.
parse_conf_arg(args) Parse command line arguments for the last instance of -conf=path.
parseCommandLine(arguments, argc, params, files) Parse command line arguments.
