digitalmars.D - #dbugfix 16746 - Output Makefile-style depfiles for ninja and make


Since this issue came up again here just now, I would like to 
draw your attention to this particular bug.
It hinders integration with widely used build systems like 
Automake, CMake, Meson and build tools like ninja/make and in 
general results in very suprising results especially when using 
templates in code that is split-built.

A patch is available in a PR against dmd, but there was no new 
activity since last March, so it would be nice to get feedback 
and have the change finally merged in some form.

Bug: https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16746
PR:  https://github.com/dlang/dmd/pull/6961

Thank you and greetings from the Debian developer's conference in 
Taiwan (with more interest in D here than expected :-) )
