Delphi – when compiling consts doesn’t work…

The Wiert Corner – Delphi has a lot of loose ends. With the extension of the language, it gets more and more. Or as Stefan Glienke formulated it: It should all compile but it does not because currently what is a real const and what is a variable treated as const by the compiler is a f…ing mess and thus some ...

Test-Driven Development: A Love Story?

blog.gurock.com – “Love” is a strong word. I’m not sure I really love test-driven development (TDD). But I do love solving problems by programming and crafting simple, elegant code. Some things detract from this love: Delivering defects—how embarrassing! Pulling my hair out because I can’t understand how your (or ...

Delphi WSDL importer compiler defines

The Wiert Corner – As a follow-up on Delphi WSDL default importer settings, you can use these compiler defines to increase output. Output that the built-in Wizard will never show you (that is also the reason you will not see any errors like access violations in the IDE). TL;DR Always use the command-line WSDL ...

Bringing the blog back to life…

Is there any way to record a keyboard macro in the IDE?

The Wiert Corner – Yes there is, but it only does code editor commands. It’s been there since at least 1998 (read Delphi 4), probably all 32-bit versions and maybe even the 16-bit Delphi 1 version. via: [WayBack] Is there any way to record a keyboard macro in the IDE?

Strings as “data buffers”

Yet Another Programming Blog – I bet most of the Delphi developers used or are still using strings to hold and operate on binary data. I’ve done it, and some of my older projects still contain such code. The basic idea is to use strings as byte buffers to hold and to use string routines to perform operations on those ...

The only new feature in MMX

The Art of Delphi Programming – The move of MMX turned out to be very welcomed in the Delphi community. Over 3000 downloads during the first 48 hours are just overwhelming and unfortunately led to some interim drop outs of the web server. Apologies for that. I will talk to the web hoster about this and see if we can get this a bit ...

The Delphi Geek – When I'm working on OmniThreadLibrary, I have to keep backwards compatibility in mind. And man, is that hard! OmniThreadLibrary supports every Delphi from 2007 onward and that means lots of IFDEFs and some ugly hacks.Typically I develop new stuff on Berlin or Tokyo and then occasionally start a ...

Half a century of BASIC

RemObjects Blogs – BASIC turned 53 earlier this month, and it got me thinking: For many computer users of a certain age, BASIC was the first foray into programming - and using it was a veritable rite of passage for the first generation of personal computer owners.
