Issue 3541 - Add -oq to dmd (use fully qualified module name as object filename).

Trying this again, I've just updated my fork. I have tested this on Mac OS X by running the Phobos unit tests and they all DO PASS. The command line I used to run the unit tests was "make unittest".

Could you please get rid of this?

I wonder where that came from but it's restored now.

Walter adds it in for debugging and it accidentally ended up getting left in the master branch for a couple of weeks.


It would be nice to also include a pull request for the documentation to add documentation for -oq

Sigh. Windows still fails to build the phobos unittests with this patch. I'm going to have to revert it again. I want to emphasize that existing behavior must not change if -oq is not used - we cannot break peoples' existing build processes.

Also, please do not use tabs in source files.


I guess I have to try and test this on Windows. I apologize for the problems this has caused. I'll fix the tabs and documentation in a, hopefully, upcoming pull request.

this is unusually restrictive. AndrejMitrovic@6d9f4e9 doesn't have this restriction
