Reminder: rebuild my Nullable Types based on Class Operators in Delphi

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/11/27

Class Operators in Delphi have been introduced in the ARM compiler in Delphi XE4 for iOS support.

By now it has been in the ARM compiler for Android too, and hopefully it will (soon) be in the x86 compiler as well.

So it is time to look at my Nullable types again, and see if I can port them over to classes.

Some references so I won’t forget them:

And some ARC links that might come in useful:

    I like anything that prevents me from having to do extra work to express my ideas. Nice!

    No, they won’t be “soon” in x86 compiler, as class operators rely on ARC.

      Back when I wrote this, I was hoping some of the ARC features would make it into the classic compiler. I’ve given up on that hope.
