The ability to do "volatile" memory access has come up here at
Right now I'm utilizing a bug in GDC as a feature to do what I
need. GDC implements shared as volatile, so I'm able to use this
"bug" to my advantage. Iain has proposed a solution here
(http://bugzilla.gdcproject.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126). Iain has
explained to me that shared and volatile actually have similar,
but different semantics.
Walter has proposed use peek() and poke() built-ins implemented
in the runtime that can be given special treatment by the
I would like to find a *universal* D solution to this, so I can
have nice portable code that works across all compilers, so I'd
like to ask the LCD contributors to chime in with their thoughts.
Does LDC currently have a solution for this? I hope we can all
come to some agreement on an implementation that is uniform
across all compilers. Please participate in the GDC discussion
and let us know your thoughts.
