To celebrate his 85th birthday, some links to interviews with Niklaus Wirth interviews

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/15

Today, Niklaus Wirth, “father” of The Pascal Programming Language turned 85.

Happy birthday!

Almost 50 years ago, Niklaus Wirth submitted his famous paper “The Programming Language Pascal” which was published early 1971

Luckily it is archived on both the WayBack machine and as the only PDF copy I could find on-line isn’t always on-line:

Originally it was published by Niklaus Wirth  in Acta Informatica, Vol. 1, Fasc. 1, 1971 pp. 35-63

He has been very active, just browse through the [WayBack] List of computer science publications by Niklaus Wirth

To celebrate his birthday, here are some interviews with him:

If you like the ones above as much as I do, then search for more: there are plenty!

The Delphi VCL comes to Oxygene

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/03

Interesting approach, which makes one more “cross platform VCL” from outside the Embarcadero pipeline [WayBack] The Delphi VCL comes to Oxygene:

Developers switching from Delphi to Oxygene are loving our “Delphi RTL” compatibility library, as it helps them move their code over to new platforms without having to embrace all the new APIs at once. With the new Elements 10 builds we shipped in the past couple of weeks,

CrossVCL (by KSDev, the former FMX architects) already brings VCL to Linux through the Embarcadero compilers; VCL for Oxygene brings it – through the Oxygene compilers – to WebAssembly first and later to Cocoa and WPF.

I wonder how Windows VCL compatible both approaches are.

Interesting to try:

The new generation Pascal programming language that combines simplicity of classic Pascal, a great number of modern extensions and broad capabilities of Microsoft .NET Framework

I didn’t know about it either.
