Discussion

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.

  • Declaration

    void printInternalFailure(FILE* stream);

    Print DMD's logo with more debug information and error-reporting pointers.

    Parameters

    FILE* stream

    output stream to print the information on

  • Declaration

    void emitMakeDeps(ref Param params, Library library);

    Emit the makefile dependencies for the -makedeps switch

  • Declaration

    int main(int argc, char** argv);

    DMD's entry point, C main.

    Discussion

    Without -lowmem, we need to switch to the bump-pointer allocation scheme right from the start, before any module ctors are run, so we need this hook before druntime is initialized and _Dmain is called.

    Return Value

    Return code of the application

  • Declaration

    int _Dmain(char[][]);

    Manual D main (for druntime initialization), which forwards to tryMain.

    Return Value

    Return code of the application

  • Declaration

    void getenv_setargv(const(char)* envvalue, Strings* args);

    Parses an environment variable containing command-line flags and append them to args.

    Discussion

    This function is used to read the content of DFLAGS. Flags are separated based on spaces and tabs.

    Parameters

    const(char)* envvalue

    The content of an environment variable

    Strings* args

    Array to append the flags to, if any.

  • Declaration

    const(char)[] parse_arch_arg(Strings* args, const(char)[] arch);

    Parse command line arguments for the last instance of -m32, -m64 or -m32mscoff to detect the desired architecture.

    Parameters

    Strings* args

    Command line arguments

    const(char)[] arch

    Default value to use for architecture. Should be "32" or "64"

    Return Value

    "32", "64" or "32mscoff" if the "-m32", "-m64", "-m32mscoff" flags were passed, respectively. If they weren't, return arch.

  • Declaration

    const(char)[] parse_conf_arg(Strings* args);

    Parse command line arguments for the last instance of -conf=path.

    Parameters

    Strings* args

    Command line arguments

    Return Value

    The 'path' in -conf=path, which is the path to the config file to use

  • Declaration

    void setTarget(ref Param params);

    Set the is target fields of params according to the TARGET value.

    Parameters

    Param params

    where the is fields are

  • Declaration

    void addDefaultVersionIdentifiers(ref const Param params);

    Add default version identifier for dmd, and set the target platform in params. https://dlang.org/spec/version.html#predefined-versions

    Discussion

    Needs to be run after all arguments parsing (command line, DFLAGS environment variable and config file) in order to add final flags (such as X86_64 or the CRuntime used).

    Parameters

    Param params

    which target to compile for (set by setTarget())

  • Declaration

    void 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)

  • Declaration

    bool parseCommandLine(ref const Strings arguments, const size_t argc, ref Param params, ref Strings files);

    Parse command line arguments.

    Discussion

    Prints message(s) if there are errors.

    Parameters

    Strings arguments

    command line arguments

    size_t argc

    argument count

    Param params

    set to result of parsing arguments

    Strings files

    set to files pulled from arguments

    Return Value

    true if errors in command line

  • Declaration

    Module createModule(const(char)* file, ref Strings libmodules);

    Creates the module based on the file provided

    Discussion

    The file is dispatched in one of the various arrays (global.params.{ddocfiles,dllfiles,jsonfiles,etc...}) according to its extension. If it is a binary file, it is added to libmodules.

    Parameters

    const(char)* file

    File name to dispatch

    Strings libmodules

    Array to which binaries (shared/static libs and object files) will be appended

    Return Value

    A D module

  • Declaration

    Modules createModules(ref Strings files, ref Strings libmodules);

    Creates the list of modules based on the files provided

    Discussion

    Files are dispatched in the various arrays (global.params.{ddocfiles,dllfiles,jsonfiles,etc...}) according to their extension. Binary files are added to libmodules.

    Parameters

    Strings files

    File names to dispatch

    Strings libmodules

    Array to which binaries (shared/static libs and object files) will be appended

    Return Value

    An array of path to D modules
