Some links that were useful getting back into using Delphi with resource scripts and include files:

Maybe I should have considered this alternative:

Delphi and stuff: The strange limitation of 64 threads

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/02/21

… there’s no need to use WaitForMultipleObjects in Step 2. It’s fairly easy to keep a counter of active threads in the pool (interlocked-incremented when a thread starts, interlocked-decremented when a thread is finished). When the counter reaches zero (no more active threads), signal an event. With only one event to wait for, you can use WaitForSingleObject

So no more 64-thread (MAXIMUM_WAIT_OBJECTS) limits for pools…

Now that Delphi will reintroduce Linux as a target: what features / support do you expect in the compiler and libraries?

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/02/17

Almost 2 decades after the first Delphi Linux support in [WayBackBorland Kylix by an full tool-chain (IDE, compiler, debugger, libraries) running on Linux, Embarcadero/Idera is about to support Linux again in a cross-compiler fashion that was originally scheduled for late 2016 as Delphi Godzilla [WayBackEmbarcadero RAD Studio 2016 Product Approach and Roadmap – Embarcadero Community and [WayBackLinux support for Delphi to be available end of 2016 – Synopse.

It seems to be finally getting here as Delphi 10.2 Tokyo when you look at the [Archive.is] Delphi Linux Boot Camp promotion for instance at [WayBackDelphi Linux Boot Camp – Community Blogs – Embarcadero Community.

I’m curious at what people expect from it.

So please comment your expectations, for instance:

  • what Linux distribution targets
  • what processor architectures
  • what language support (ARC, classic, 1-based strings, etc)
  • what library support
  • what IDE support (like debugger features)
  • what speeds

If you want to get a head start, then read these:
