GExperts 1.37 available for Delphi XE6..6.02, but not for Appmethod (via: Download | GExperts)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/04/19

GExperts 1.37 (commit 875, but no tag yet) now supports Delphi XE6 and XE5, and ahost of older Delphi versions. Binary downloads are available at Download | GExperts

These were the release news items:

In addition to what is in those items, 1.37contain a substantial speed improvement and some other fixes from me (I hope this fix also will get in later) in the Grep Search.

It is likely that this will be the last GExperts that support Pre-Delphi-2007 versions (currently 2006, 2005, 8.02, 7.1 and 6.02).

It is not clear if there will be a GExperts for Appmethod, as Appmethod does not provide functioning command-line compilers like I already blogged about in Spring4D now has projects for Appmethod, but it cannot support Appmethod in the automated build engine.

You can get an Experimental GExperts version for Delphi XE6..6.02 (that includes a source formatter) from Experimental GExperts Version » twm’s blog.

From Thomas Mueller (the author of the experimental GExperts versions), there are also a few other interesting blog posts you probably will like:

April 2014 Project of the Month, Free Pascal | SourceForge Community Blog

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/04/16

Thanks Olivier SCHWAB for pointing me to this nice interview with Florian Klämpfl on SourceForge about April 2014 Project of the Month, Free Pascal | SourceForge Community Blog.

Two things I didn’t know yet:

  • FreePascal started in the Turbo Pascal era (the first version was before Delphi 1.0 got released) as a 32-bit compiler project.
  • FreePascal 3.0 will support jvm output (like Oxygene does).

Besides Florian, there are quite a few more people on the FreePascal team. I met most of them at last years PasCon: really nice guys.

delphi: idioms for building strings (via: my answer on Stack Overflow)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/04/16

Once every while, one of your StackOverflow answers gets an edit suggestion that is really valuable.

This case it was Edwin Yip who suggested to emphasize the difference between TStringBuilder and TStringList (adding characters versus lines).

Too bad that freshly 10k user Makoto showed he hates bold emphasis, intentional property casing and post signatures by removing the added value (there is so much emphasis he could remove on other answers to warrant at least a day time job).

I know that not all emphasis is welcomed at StackOverflow, but in this case I think it added real value.

So I edited my own answer to add even more value: showing the idioms I use for building strings, and now it is time to quote it: Read the rest of this entry »
