Back from the Round-a-bout

I’m back from the round-about (South America -> Minnesota -> New Hampshire -> Finding Job)

I’ve been out for a while, but I’ve decided to clean up my project a little. I left it hanging with a broken subversion for too long.

Anyways, I want to get ArcLib fully integrated with eclipse, so I’ve installed the descent plug-in and have an eclipse project file. I plan to use xfbuild when I can get it to work, but right now its complaining about not having the –deps flag, and I can’t get the current hg clone to build. So I’m using reliable old dsss until I figure out how to replace it with xfbuild, and then I’ll figure out how to run xfbuild straight from eclipse.

I find eclipse to be an excellent editor if you have the memory to run it. It has useful features like global project search and replace with the option to use regex, and other neat features.

The news is this: The current trunk now compiles, yay! I haven’t checked to see if it works, but it should for the most part. Also, I’m not going to support hybrid and the scenegraph anymore, for the sheer amount of code they have, and my lack of familiarity with these systems. If I need, I may write a scenegraph or similar features from scratch in the future. Also, arclib should be able to be compilable with xfbuild, once I get that to work.

Speaking of Round-a-bouts, a nearby town decided to install two of them on the roads, with one on the highway. Both round-about's are design fails.

DMD started to support -deps from v1.047, LDC had it for more than a half of year.
