cov.fefe.de – The Isoblog.

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/31

[WayBackcov.fefe.de – The Isoblog.

(it was Scheduled for 09:00 UTC, but after all these years, WordPress.com at random still suffers from the “missed schedule” bug)

Brilliant move. Der Spiegel never had a chance, and even Der Postillion is in awe. (Context).

Yes, cov.fefe.de is the same content as blog.fefe.de.

Some notes on stripping NULL characters and BOMs from files

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/31

A while ago I bumped into applications that write alternating UTF-16 and UTF-8 to files without checking what type of encoding the files were using.

So here are some notes to at least save some of the contents.

TODO: figure out how to strip the BOM.

KirillOsenkov/MSBuildStructuredLog: A logger for MSBuild that records a structured representation of executed targets, tasks, property and item values

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/31

Cool: KirillOsenkov/MSBuildStructuredLog: A logger for MSBuild that records a structured representation of executed targets, tasks, property and item values

Basically it parses the XML output into something manageable.

Working around “[dcc32 Fatal Error] F2084 Internal Error: DBG3133” or “[dcc32 Fatal Error] F2084 Internal Error: MA1243

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/30

Since Google has a hard time searching G+: [WayBackAnyone ever encountered a “[dcc32 Fatal Error] F2084 Internal Error: DBG3133″… – G+ – Jeroen Wiert Pluimers:

Anyone ever encountered a [dcc32 Fatal Error] F2084 Internal Error: DBG3133 in XE8 or newer?

I get it in XE8 version 22.0.19908.869 intermittently on a huge* project when compiling or building.

If it occurs, I have to:

  1. restart the IDE
  2. delete all DCU files
  3. build

Without deleting the DCU files, even a build throws the error after restarting the IDE.

The project never throws an AV while compiling as described in [WayBackQC #127380: F2084 Internal error AV0B8A47D2-R3E1D3CF8-0 when compiling project unless the IDE runs out of memory (which I now resolved with DDevExtensions).

Every now and then on compile it also throws [dcc32 Fatal Error] F2084 Internal Error: MA1243.

For the other error, the same solution applies: if you don’t, then the next one is a [dcc32 Fatal Error] F2084 Internal Error: DBG3133.

Both errors occur during the Linking stage.

*huge as in that I needed DDevExtensions to work around [WayBack] Is there any tool that clears the Delphi memory overhead when a “build all” switches to the next project in a project group? XE8 constantly runs out of memory… – Jeroen Wiert Pluimers – Google+

MiloszKrajewski/LibZ: the alternative to ILMerge (Resolve instead of merge assemblies)

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/30

ILMerge has all sorts of drawbacks with things like XAML, WPF, NHibernate, dynamically loaded assemblies and reflection.

Jeffrey Richter: Excerpt #2 from CLR via C#, Third Edition | Microsoft Press blog has an interesting approach based on adding a callback to the AppDomain’s ResolveAssembly event with some steps so you can embed assemblies as resources which you then – unlike ILmerge- dynamically resolve.

Those steps require a bit of manual labour which is taken away by MiloszKrajewski/LibZ: LibZ, the alternative to ILMerge.

The repository on github even compresses your assembly resources.
