How to deploy a Delphi OSX project from the command line –

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/09/28

This is so cool: How to deploy a Delphi OSX project from the command line – [WayBack]

I always wanted to hack the communication path to PAServer [WayBack] – despite issues – but never had the time. Luckily others had…


The reason I like this very much are many. Just a few:

Got a very quick response Range combo – – Irish For Pastebin on:

I’m looking for an algorithm that converts a list of integers (for instance of pages to be printed) from this form:1,2,3,4,6,7,8,13,14into1-4,6-8,13-14… – Jeroen Wiert Pluimers – Google+

I’ll write some unit tests soon and make it into a unit for testing.

For now it looks exactly what I need. In addition, I learned how this algorithm is called Range extraction – Rosetta Code and the opposite Range expansion – Rosetta Code.

Basically these lists are the format where a user can enter the range of pages to be printed.

The code by Asbjørn Heid uses a Functional record definition allowing for function binding just like in C++ Boost.Bind [WayBack].

Based on that, I made this changeset:

atom-keyboard-macros: tried, doesn’t work reliably – anyone who knows a better one?

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/09/28

One of the things I missed in the Atom editor is a keyboard macro recording/playback.

I tried atom-keyboard-macros but it doesn’t work reliably.

Not sure where it fails as the failure patterns are inconclusive.

Anyone having a better experience?

Common Table Expressions: no nesting, but consecutively usage – via Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/09/28

Common table expressions are awesome. They work in at least Oracle and SQL Server.

You cannot nest them, but you can use them consecutively. Thanks spender for explaining that:

x AS
y AS


via: sql – Can you create nested WITH clauses for Common Table Expressions? – Stack Overflow.

The Oracle at Delphi: Set in my ways

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/09/28

A few pieces of Delphi compiler history:

Allen Bauer:

Most notably, the Object Pascal/Delphi compiler is written in mostly C with a smattering of C++, the editor kernel (sans display rendering) and debugger engine (process control/symbol table management) were written in C++. All of which I’ve worked on throughout my 24+ years on that team.

The 16bit compiler was written in pure assembler. The current compiler is written in C. It was derived from an Amiga 68000 Turbo Pascal compatible compiler. It’s never been written in Object Pascal.

That being said, there was an effort several years ago to completely rework/re-architect the compiler. That was done in OP. It just barely got to the “hello world” stage before it was set aside.
