I am very new to D and still battling trying to configure my toolchain.
I am running Ubuntu Karmic and would like to use DSSS with GDC and Tango or TangoBos.
Till now, I installed GDC from Ubuntu repositories, DSSS, Tango and TangoBos from these repositories and I can compile using dsss + gdc + tangobos.
According to DSSS documentation, it should be possible to run the unit tests using
$ dsss build --test
but on my system, the --test argument is ignored. I have dsss last version (0.78) and its inline help does not include anything about unit tests.
Running ldc --unittest works fine (though I do not know exactly which libray it picks up).
Is there a way to run my unit tests using the same compiler & library than for compilation?
If so, is there a way to automate the testing or will I have to run it module per module?
As best I can tell, sometime around Karmic, Ubuntu's install of gdc started ignoring arguments such as "--foo".
$ gdc --not-a-real-option gdc: no input files
$ gdc -not-a-real-option gdc: unrecognized option '-not-a-real-option' gdc: no input files
So on Lucid dsss version 0.76, gdc (Ubuntu 1:1.046-4.3.4-3ubuntu1) 4.3.4,
dsss build -test
dsss build -unittest
should compile with unit tests
