Poor mans C to Delphi converter by Wouter van Nifterick

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/01/18

Seems very OK for a first pass in a C to Delphi conversion:

It is a lot (~300 megabyte compressed download!), but worth it.

Here are the links:

And the quote from [WayBack] LAUNCHED … – Joe C. Hecht – Google+


337 MB of source and utils in 2,308 Files, 910 Folders before you build (not counting 3rd party source UberBuild downloads).

It’s a start, with much to come.It will get easier now that UberBuild is clean.

I will be updating the docs and website in the next few days.

Special thanks …

I already see room for improvement (such as a setup screen for extra compilers such as Delphi and Free Pascal to keep folks out of shell scripts and from hunting for help in the documentation).

Let’s stop copying C / fuzzy notepad

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/12/07

Ah, C. The best lingua franca we have… because we have no other lingua francas. Linguae franca. Surgeons general? C is fairly old — 44 years, now! — and comes from a time when there were possibly more architectures than programming languages. It works well for what it is, and what it is is a relatively simple layer of indirection atop assembly. Alas, the popularity of C has led to a number of programming languages’ taking significant cues from its design, and parts of its design are… slightly questionable. I’ve gone through some common features that probably should’ve stayed in C and my justification for saying so. The features are listed in rough order from (I hope) least to most controversial. The idea is that C fans will give up when I call it “weakly typed” and not even get to the part where I rag on braces. Wait, crap, I gave it away.

Great re-read towards the end of the year: [WayBackLet’s stop copying C / fuzzy notepad
