I guess the IDE would have to be told what dmd/gdc's include path is so it knows where to find an import like std.string.

But it looks like the rest is already done: Geany already shows parameter help for D functions even if they're imported from another file...

    With Geany SVN, you can generate your own global tags files, then put them in ~/.geany/tags before startup.

    The following should work on *nix, on windows you would probably need to supply a list of wildcards instead of the find expression:

    geany -g std.d.tags `find ~/devel/dmd/src/phobos/ -name '*.d' | xargs`

    I don't think we will distribute a tags file for the D standard library with Geany itself - for most languages tags files should be generated or downloaded separately.

    I've attached a generated tags file for the D standard library. Put it in ~/.geany/tags as described in my previous post.
    File Added: std-1.006.d.tags
