SysUtils.pas Why parameters of these anonymous not const? TProc = …

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/02

At [WayBack] SysUtils.pas Why parameters of these anonymous not const? TProc = reference to procedure (Arg1: T1; Arg2: T2); TProc = reference … – Jacek Laskowski – Google+, Hallvard Vasbotn made this nail on the head comment:

It could have been solved if the const’ness had been seen as a implementation detail by the compiler (which it really is) and made const and non-const signatures assignment compatible.

It was changes like the above that I had hoped for when writing Source: 15 months later: what happened to Delphi Language Enhancements? « The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of stuff.

Now we are another 27 months later, so this again is a reminder to check what the compiler team (man?) has improved on the language side.

    How do you find all these Google+ conversations? Did you archive the links at the time or are you searching the Wayback machine?

      My blog queue is full until about the end of 2021 (which is great, as now I have #ChemoLife).

      I do have a saved archive from G+ generated from one of the saving tools. When cancer treatment is over and I have enough energy, I plan to contact Lars Fosdal to see if I can get that on-line somehow.
