Some interesting bits on interface delegation including a class helper trick – via Stefan Glienke – Google+

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/17

Every time he finds a new compiler use, I’m all like “wow!”. This time [WayBackStefan Glienke – Google+: One of these rare moments when the compiler positively impresses me found a new way to make single responsibility principle easier to attain by using a class helper to resolve interface delegation.

In the comments are a few nice tidbits on what the compiler emits in order to implement interface delegation and reference counting.

Raspberry Pi cannot be woken up by WOL, but it can send, and there is Whack-on-LAN

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/17

Cool stuff if you want to make your own WOL devices out of spare parts.

From old to new:

They can be woken up by anything sending magic WOL packets, including Raspberry Pi (which cannot be woken up by them, though you could use a Whack-on-LAN for that).

Basically the Raspberry Pi cannot be woken up with WOL because of a few reasons:

  1. The ethernet chip is connected over USB so it cannot pass the WOL result further on.
  2. If it could, there still is no BIOS to process the WOL result.
  3. When it is halted but has power, the CPU isn’t active. The GPU is, but cannot process the WOL.

It can be a WOL server though: [WayBackRaspberry Pi As Wake on LAN Server: 5 Steps (with Pictures)

  • Added: TCustomListBox.ResetContent is skipped if the handle isn’t created yet
  • Added: DFM Streaming optimizations
  • Added: FillChar uses Enhanced REP MOVSB/STOSB cpu feature if available for large sizes.
  • Added: Enabled CPU LOCK string assignment optimization for local variables
  • Added: -Oe (experimental optimizations) and -x-cgo compiler option extension (Remove of some unneccessary push/pop operations)
  • Added: Expression Evaluator allows array access to pointers even if the type wasn’t declared with {$POINTERMATH ON}
  • Added: New compiler option extensions: -x–compileonly, -x–reslist, -x–depfile, -x–unitstats
  • Added: More performance optimization for the DCC64 compiler
