Delphi 7 Installation – Ol’Tymes

Olaf Monien – I just installed Delphi 7 to test something with an old project, which never got updated to one of the newer Delphi Versions. I have an old CD where I copied the installation folder from. That took like 8-10 minutes, as the CD is apparently not in good shape anymore. Then after some Win7 paranoia ...

TStringHelper in Delphi XE3

Marco's Tech Blog – I blogged quite some time ago about record helpers for native types in XE3 in general. This time I want to focus on TStringHelper.
