SEP92: A VIDEO COMPATIBILITY INTERFACE FOR TURBO DEBUGGER

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/26

[WayBack] SEP92: A VIDEO COMPATIBILITY INTERFACE FOR TURBO DEBUGGER

Blast from the past, which reminds me of the days that Peter Sawatzki used this interface to write a DLL that allowed Turbo Debugger for Windows (TDW) run on a secondary monochrome screen using a special TDVIDEO.DLL.

That way you could debug Windows applications without distorting the screens, highly speeding up the debugging process.

Lot’s of stuff from that era got never archived, so I wish I could have found it in my archive, but I seem to have lost it.

Git Mergetool and difftool with Beyond Compare 4 · GitHub

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/26

For my archive: [WayBack] Git Mergetool and difftool with Beyond Compare 4 · GitHub

jpluimers commented

I stuck to this as I:

  • do not run git bash
  • have Beyond Compared installed in the default directory (not the x86 one)
  • do not want a new UI instance, so use the recommended BComp.exe
git config --global merge.tool bc4
git config --global mergetool.bc4.cmd "'C:/Program Files/Beyond Compare 4/BComp.exe' \"$LOCAL\" \"$REMOTE\" \"$BASE\" \"$MERGED\""
git config --global mergetool.bc4.trustExitCode true

This works splendid with git mergetool: it starts a merge in the already open BCompare.exe instance.

I only do merge from Beyond Compare, so no need for me to do a similar Beyond Compare setup for diff.tool, but if anyone wants it, it would be this:

git config --global diff.tool bc4
git config --global difftool.bc4.cmd "'C:/Program Files/Beyond Compare 4/BComp.exe' \"$LOCAL\" \"$REMOTE\""
git config --global difftool.bc4.prompt false

This works fine for any git versoin > 2.2.0.

What I need to find out is if it is possible to open all merges at once in Beyond Compare. Maybe these help:

This did help getting rid of .orig files: [WayBack] version control – Git mergetool generates unwanted .orig files – Stack Overflow

Delphi revelations #3 – kbmMW Smart client – DispInvoke leak – Components4Developers

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/26

For my archive, as one day I will run into this Variant/DispInvoke issue myself:[WayBack] Delphi revelations #3 – kbmMW Smart client – DispInvoke leak – Components4Developers:

Delphi revelations, now about investigating a pesky DispInvoke bug in all versions of Delphi supported by kbmMW, including 10.3 Rio, that results in leaks, and how kbmMW now ends up not being affected by it.
