Delphi 2009 syntax; not official, but a great start and complement to DelphiAST

The Wiert Corner – A while ago, I found out that [WayBack] Toon Krijthe made a [Archive.is] Delphi 2009 syntax sample which is a great complement to the DelphiAST parser given that Borland/CodeGear/Embarcadero/Idera never published one in the 22+years that Delphi is alive. –jeroen

A Look at 5 BDD Tools for C# Codebases
