RosettaCode: cool way to improve your coding skills

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/01/22

Wow: I feel like having lived under a stone for 8 years, as RosettaCode has been alive since it was founded in 2007 by Mike Mol.

The idea is that you solve a task and learn from that, or learn by seeing how others have solved tasks or draft tasks.

So in a sense it is similar to the Rosetta stone: it has different languages phrasing the same tasks.

There are already a whole bunch of languages on RosettaCode (of which a few are in the categories below), and you can even suggest or add your own languages.

When you want to solve tasks, be sure to look at the list unimplemented tasks by language that leads to automatic reports by language (for instance two of the languages I use most often: C# and Delphi).

I’m sure there are lots of programming chrestomathy sites, even beyond the ones, and it feels very similar to programming kata sites.

Delphi hinting directives: deprecated, experimental, library and platform

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/10/01

I’ve been experimenting with the Delphi hinting directives lately to make it easier to migrate some libraries to newer versions of Delphi and newer platforms.

Hinting directives (deprecated, experimental, library and platform) were – like the $MESSAGE directive – added to Delphi 6.

Up to Delphi 5 you didn’t have any means to declare code obsolete. You had to find clever ways around it.

Warnings for hinting directives

When referring to identifiers marked with a hinting directive, you can get various warning messages that depend on the kind of identifier: unit, or other symbol. Read the rest of this entry »

Do not share DCU files between projects (via: delphi – Compiler Directive IF and IFEND – Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/13

Summary: Always try to avoid sharing .DCU files between projects.

I see a lot of projects at clients that do not have their individual DCU directories set (therefore having the DCU files in the same directory as the PAS files causing shared units to share the DCU files), or share DCU files among different projects.

Both are a very bad idea, as the compiler does not always understand when the DCU file does not match the combination of PAS file and compiler options.

The result is the occasional use of the DCU file in stead of the PAS file causing wrong code to be used, or wrong debugger information to be included.

Danny Thorpe phrased it on Stack Overflow: Read the rest of this entry »
