Download / Install

Assuming you already have DMD installed:

  1. Download Goldie and SemiTwist D Tools.

    There are two ways to download these:

  2. Build SemiTwist D Tools.
    [You can skip this step if you obtained a release with prebuilt binaries for your OS.]

    From the main SemiTwist D Tools directory:

    >buildAll
  3. Add the executable directories for Goldie and SemiTwist D Tools to your PATH environment variable.
    [This is technically optional, but highly recommended.]

    These directories are:

    {main Goldie directory}/bin/ {main SemiTwistDTools directory}/bin/

    See step #2 above for how to access the environment variables on WinXP.

    Having these on your PATH shouldn't cause any name collisions because all the executables for Goldie and SemiTwist D Tools are prefixed with goldie- and semitwist- respectively.

    On WinXP, environment variables can be accessed by: Right-Click on "My Computer", "Properties", "Advanced" tab, "Environment Variables" button. You'll need to start a new command prompt for it to take effect. You might also need to log out and back in again.

    If you're on a Posix OS, and don't want to modify PATH, you can just symlink the executables to your preferred bin directory. But make sure you symlink them, don't just copy them.

  4. Build Goldie's tools and sample apps.
    [You can skip this step if you obtained a release with prebuilt binaries for your OS.]

    (See the note above regarding RDMD.)

    From Goldie's root directory:

    >semitwist-stbuild all -x-I../SemiTwistDTools/src

    To see how to build the debug versions of Goldie's tools and sample apps, or only build one tool, or perform a cleaning:

    >semitwist-stbuild --help
