Ticket #1001 (closed enhancement: wontfix)

Opened 11 years ago

Last modified 9 years ago

Remove std.stdarg and std.c.stdarg

Reported by: fawzi Assigned to: larsivi
Priority: normal Milestone: 0.99.9
Component: Core Functionality Version: trunk
Keywords: stdio tangobos Cc:


When using gdc there is a dependence of tango.stdc.stdargs (and thus tango.stdc.stdio) on std.c.stdio. This dependence is easy to remove, and, if removed, makes it possible to use tango.stdc.stdio in tangobos std.c.stdio as done in a recent change in tangobos.

Here is a patch wrt. to svn, to fix it.


svn diff tango/stdc/stdarg.d

Change History

There used to be a problem (at least perceived problem) doing this in the past, due to how std.stdarg is hardcoded into GDC. When I did the Tangobos change, I tested the same as you did above, and I think we now safely can remove std.stdarg and std.c.stdarg. I'd like to have it properly confirmed first though.

This seems to have broken something, at least on my system and also reported by 'jhouse' on irc.

A simple test program that does 'Stdout("foo" ~ "bar").newline;' should show the problem (nothing is output at all for me, nor the original reporter).

If I backrev to 3396 all works again.

Not able to reproduce - any more details on your setup? Did you properly clean your previous installation?

03/26/08 16:17:28 changed by darrylb

Indeed I did :)

I was testing on my laptop, which is a 32bit Intel, ubuntu. (gcc version 4.1.3 20070831 (prerelease gdc 0.25, using dmd 1.021) (Ubuntu 0.25-4.1.2-16ubuntu1))

I went back to 3100 first, worked fine. 3396 also worked fine. When I went to 3397, I would no longer get concat output. Going back to 3396 solved it.

I was using a test program something like:

char[] foo = "foo"; char[] bar = "bar"; Stdout(foo, bar, foo ~ bar).newline;

3396 would output: foo, bar, foobar

3397 would output: foo, bar,

Just to add some more, I'm testing with a Core2Duo, ubuntu, gdc .25 using dmd 1.021, this test program:


void main()
        char[] foo = "foo";
        char[] bar = "bar";
        Stdout(foo, bar, foo ~ bar).newline;

I get:

jeff@jeff-desktop:~/code/tetra/src$ ./test8
foo, bar, foobar

So, yea.. :p

tried it on my pc here at work, (I had to change line 1076 in tango/io/Path.d to this to get it to compile):

FS.Listing list;
list.folder = folder ~ '\0';

System here is:

Linux darryl #1 SMP 2007/09/21 22:29:00 UTC i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
gcc version 4.1.2 20070214 (  (gdc 0.24, using dmd 1.020))

(running 32bit Suse)

same test program as Nietsnie posted above outputs:

foo, bar,

Just to update my comment.

I just rebuild the library with dsss, and didn't run the script.

After running ./ and ./ I get the results reported by darrylb.

Seems you're more familiar with this one than I am, larsivi?

  • status changed from new to closed.
  • resolution set to wontfix.

Presumably (if the related bugzilla above isn't fixed), then we should be able to put these files into vendor/gdc (again assuming that we add GDC support again). I believe this solves the issue of the title. The original issue (the tangobos one) may still not be fixed by the vendor solution, but then Tangobos GDC is probably even less supported for now.
