Recommended reading: “Security Engineering” now available free online

According to Alan Cox,

And yes this is worth reading…

Right now it looks like the site is overloaded, so you will have to use the Google Cache: Light Blue Touchpaper » Blog Archive » “Security Engineering” now available free online.

So I’m going to re-try in a couple of days.

Later: that was an intermediate site. The actual site is Security Engineering – A Guide to Building Dependable Distributed Systems..

Allen Bauer on: delphi – What’s the difference between CreateWnd and CreateWindowHandle? (plus a bit of CreateParams)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/02/06

One of the really nice contributions on StackOverflow by Allen Bauer is almost 3 years ago.

It is about these three Delphi VCL methods introduced by TWinControl to make control development easier:

The really cool thing is that this API has been stable since 1995, and still allows you to subclass windows controls or create your own controls in a very simple way.

Note that Allen does not cover DestroyWnd or DestroyWindowHandle, but those are just counterparts of CreateWnd and CreateWindowHandle.

In normal Delphi application code, you have less Destroy overrides than Create overrides, and the same holds for control development.
