From the update process:

==> Caveats
==> hub
Bash completion has been installed to:
  /usr/local/etc/bash_completion.d

zsh completions have been installed to:
  /usr/local/share/zsh/site-functions
==> python
Python has been installed as
  /usr/local/bin/python3

Unversioned symlinks `python`, `python-config`, `pip` etc. pointing to
`python3`, `python3-config`, `pip3` etc., respectively, have been installed into
  /usr/local/opt/python/libexec/bin

If you need Homebrew's Python 2.7 run
  brew install python@2

You can install Python packages with
  pip3 install 
They will install into the site-package directory
  /usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages

See: https://docs.brew.sh/Homebrew-and-Python

Delphi: Download multiple files in multiple parts at the same time, support resuming, gzip-encoded files, cookies, logging to websites using POST and so on

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/05

If I ever need to download multiple files in multiple parts at the same time, support resuming, gzip-encoded files, cookies, logging to websites using POST and so on, then I need to look at [WayBack] http – Delphi- downloading files from the web with sockets – Stack Overflow.

Delphi What’s new history and a docwiki URL trick

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/05

One of the great things about the Delphi docwiki structure is that the naming system is very consistent.

The consistency helps you quickly finding the What’s new for any version, just by getting the latest first.

Getting the latest one is based based on a docwiki redirection trick that always redirects from an “unversioned” URL to the latest one.

So these two “unversioned” URLs always get you there:

When writing this, the above links got me the below list. For consistency (as you cannot save URLs for prior versions in the WayBack machine because a brain-dead robots.txt setting which archive.is luckily ignores):

By now, there will hopefully be a few more Delphi versions released.

Reminder to self: update the list (:
