digitalmars.D - dmd testsuite's runner is now in D

Just a quick heads-up for all the people using Windows and who have previously complained about the usage of GNUmake for DMD's testsuite. Since a few days, all you need to run the testsuite is a DMD compiler. The test/run.d has a few handy features, so check out the new documentation: https://github.com/dlang/dmd/blob/master/test/README.md The quick summary: expansion, you can build your own subset of tests to run TEST_OUTPUT text (and generated files soon) It's intended as a drop-in replacement for the Makefile, so all previous commands should work and it can be invoked from anywhere (no need for -C). There are still a few bash tests that might fail on Windows, so use e.g. your git shell . Disclaimer: test/run.d is currently still experimental. If you run into any issues, please report them. PS: The plan is to slowly transition from the Makefile to test/run.d, so any issues you have with test/run.d are important.  https://github.com/dlang/dmd/pull/8215  https://gitforwindows.org
