Also when I tried to declare / use extern strings like from
APPKIT_EXTERN NSString *NSApplicationDidHideNotification;
I found no way to get this working. Is this a limitation of
64 bit port?
I think that should work. How did you declare it? It should be
declared like this:
extern (C) extern NSString NSApplicationDidHideNotification;
I tried with a standard D compiler and void* instead of
NSString and that worked.
"extern (C)" tells the compiler to use C linkage, the second
"extern" tells the compiler this symbols is defined somewhere
else, i.e. in some library.
Jacob, thank you very much for your reply and explanations!
I get EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) for both NSString and void * if I
use the declaration you suggested.
In the case for notification string constants, when I log it in
Objective-C, it just equals to
"NSApplicationDidHideNotification", so these could be simply
redeclared for such strings, but that's not very stylish and
against the basic idea, i guess.
