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 »

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.

Ancient history – found back one of my earliest email messages dated in februari 1989!

Posted by jpluimers on 2009/10/12

I found back one of my earliest mail messages: it is dated back in februari 1989.

Wow – ain’t search engines nice!

Today, messages like those seem totally irrelevant.

But back then, getting in touch with other people through email could be a real challenge.

The internet was forming (out of UUNET, DECnet, BITNET, Usenet, EARN, ARPANET and others), and not everything was completely interconnected yet, let alone connected on-line 24/7.
For instance, newsgroups were limited to the usenet portion of the internet, and not available on the bitnet portion. Read the rest of this entry »
