I've created bindings for the C Shapefile Library. Shapefiles
are a format used commonly in vector based Geographic Information
Systems, often for data interchange. It is a pretty simple
library and it is my first effort at creating such bindings.
I've looked in Demios and code.dlang.org to see what the standard
setup for such bindings is, and while most are similar there
doesn't seem to be an accepted layout. If anyone has a moment to
spare I would be happy if someone could have a look to see if
there are any obvious improvements that should be made.
I plan to run a few more tests on my bindings, and once those all
work, I hope to add this to code.dlang.org.
There are only two possible improvements that I can see:
- The "C" folder may be better off in the root folder of the project,
because it doesn't fit with the D sources from a build process point
of view. In practice it doesn't really hurt either, so your mileage
- Usually I try to include .lib files for the library bindings on
Windows, since it greatly simplifies the setup process, which is
usually trivial on Linux.
Other than that I'd recommend to use a version scheme for the git
tags/branches that matches the version scheme of the C library (probably
excluding the patch version, which should be reserved for the binding
itself). Unfortunately the Deimos bindings use neither branches, nor
