Blast from the past: “Advanced Pascal Programming Techniques” – Google Search

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/04/05

Back in my school days, this was the best Pascal book you could get: “Advanced Pascal Programming Techniques” – Google Search.

This is Apple Pasca, USD Pascal, first Turbo Pascal era.

Sadly, getting English books in The Netherlands was hard. So I had to do with books from Academic Press which not as good.

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 »

On my buying list: The WOZPAK Special Edition (1978 Apple I/II materials digitally enhanced)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/27

At USD 50, this seems like a bargain for Apple I / Apple II lovers.

From the The WOZPAK Special Edition – Overview page:

In 1978, The WOZPAK was a 300 page technical manual produced by Apple Pugetsound Program Library Exchange.  The poor resolution of copy machines and fax machines of the era made The WOZPAK an illegible and challenging to use collection of handwritten and typed notes.  This collection as a whole was provided to the A.P.P.L.E. by Apple Computer, Inc. co-founder Steve Wozniak and then company president Mike Scott.  

Thanks to the encouragement of a number of computer industry legends, and the efforts of Apple historians, Brian Wiser and Bill Martens, we now have a completely refurbished and dramatically enhanced version of The WOZPAK.  The WOZPAK Special Edition comes complete with the original materials from The WOZPAK and The WOZPAK II as well as some new materials provided by Apple legends from their personal libraries.

Link clearance: history of Pascal / Object Pascal / Delphi Language / FreePacal / …

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/25

This post lists a lot of links related to the history of Pascal / Object Pascal / Delphi Language / FreePascal / etc.

No mentioning of Pascal should start without Niklaus Wirth. At the time of writing he is still alive, hopefully he still is a the time of publication.

Link clearance.
