Do not put IFDEF with relative paths in your .dpr as the Delphi IDE cannot match them in the .dproj

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/20

The Delphi IDE manages the .dpr and .dproj files for, trying to keep them in sync.

Some information is duplicated between the two, especially files referenced by relative paths: those files are contained in your project.

This means you cannot do something like this in your .dpr file:

  Debug in '..\..\..\..\Shared\Debug.pas';
  Debug in '..\Debug.pas'

There is no equivalent for this in the .dproj and it will confuse the IDE which file now actually is or is not inside your project.

Better to leave the file outside of your project, then modify the RELEASE/DEBUG search paths to have the correct one.

Even better is to have just one Debug.pas file containing the changes.

About Blocks –

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/20

[WayBackAbout Blocks – is so cool:

Bl.ocks (pronounced “Blocks”) is a simple viewer for sharing code examples hosted on GitHub Gist.

The main source for your example is in index.html. This file can contain relative links to other files in your Gist, such as images, scripts or stylesheets. And of course you can use absolute links, such as CDN-hosted D3jQuery or Leaflet. To explain your example, add a written in Markdown. (You can omit the index.html if you just want to write, too.)

[WayBack] Code-only-Blocks are cool too:

When your Gist is missing an index.html file, will hide the example iframe but continue to display everything else.

Just compare these:

Can’t format message nn:mmm — message text not found

Lovely: people that perform incomplete Firebird deployments…

This means the firebird.msg file on the client is either not found or is a different version than the server.

PSD2 and privacy

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/20

The problem is that with PSD2 it takes just one party to allow access to two sides of the hatchway: their side of their transactions and your side if the transactions you are involved in. So if you want privacy, you cannot protect against this.
