Google Search string for either docwiki, Delphi 2007 or Delphi 2009 docs

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/02

These search the Delphi 2007 docs:

Similar for Delphi 2009 docs

The second ones search just English, and the first searches all languages.

Given the Google search indexing, the first might give a lot of Japanese search results:

I made shortcuts for the English one in Chrome:

Search engine definition
Search engine Delphi 2007 docs
Keyword d2007
URL with %s in place of query https://www.google.com/#q=site:docs.embarcadero.com/products/rad_studio/radstudio2007/RS2007_helpupdates/HUpdate4/EN+%s

 

Search engine definition
Search engine Delphi 20079 docs
Keyword d2009
URL with %s in place of query https://www.google.com/#q=site:docs.embarcadero.com/products/rad_studio/delphiAndcpp2009/HelpUpdate2/EN+%s

 

I did the same for the docwiki (where you cannot distinguish between languages in a generic way for all Delphi versions, as the language comes after the Delphi version and the kind of documentation (CodeExamples, Libraries, etc.)):

Search engine definition
Search engine Docwiki (all EN/DE/FR/JP)
Keyword docwiki
URL with %s in place of query https://www.google.com/#q=site:docwiki.embarcadero.com+%s

Reasoning:

  • It’s the earliest Delphi version having documentation on-line in HTML format.
  • The foundations of the RTL/VCL structure has not changed since then
  • The links can be archived in the WayBack machine and still look nice after archiving (no CSS fuzz that makes archived pages hard to read)
