The release 0.9.1 of LDC, the LLVM based compiler for the D programming language, contains the following major improvements:
Peter Modzelewski, member of the illustrious team0xf and an organizer of the Tango Conference 2008, has posted the video and slides of the talk on LDC Tomas Lindquist Olsen and I gave in September. The original summary was: The new D1 compiler based on the strong fundament of LLVM, the DMD frontend and the Tango [...]
The first version of LDC, the LLVM based compiler for version one of the D programming language has been released for x86-32 Linux. Get it here!
Exception handling is an integral part of the D programming language. Naturally LDC, aiming to be a complying compiler, needs to provide it. Here I describe how exactly user code, generated LLVM IR, the unwinding library and the LDC runtime interact to make it all work – at least on x86 Linux.
Currently, users of the D programming language can essentially choose between two mature compilers: DMD and GDC. I’ve started helping with the development of a third, LDC, and think the first public alpha version can’t be far off. In this post, I’ll give a short overview of the compilers available and say a few words [...]
