LDC 0.9 released

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 in LDC using LLVM

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.

Compilers for the D programming language: DMD, GDC and LDC

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 [...]
