Delphi Error: E1026 File not found: ‘Controls.res’ – Google Search

The Wiert Corner – As since E1026 is [WayBack] documented as x1026 since Delphi 2007 probably because it can manifest itself as W1026 as well, I thought Delphi Error: E1026 File not found: 'Controls.res' also be related to F1026: When the Delphi XE5 commandline compiler fails with error F1026: File not found: ...

Delphi call stack from exception…

The Wiert Corner – Lars Fosdal: MADExcept and Eurekalog are good products (and there is a JVCL tool as well). If you run your app in the IDE, you get the stack there – but for now, you need to acquire a third party package to get it runtime.I don’t disagree with the wish for a basic call stack tool, that ...

Microsoft Research’s manual memory management for .NET: exactly one owner which provides shields for accessing the objects

The Wiert Corner – A very interesting piece of research, in which I see a very familiar concept of single owners and I new concept of them providing shields for accessing the manually managed memory.

There is a way to convert ‘array of const’ (open array) to TValue: Asbjørn Heid found one.

Sending various HTTP request kinds using curl

The Wiert Corner – I’ve been using cURL but always had a feeling not to its potential basically because the cURL man page [WayBack] is both massive and lacks concrete useful practical examples. For instance, I knew about the --header and --verbose options (I always use verbose names even though shorter -H and -v ...

A slightly optimized TDateTime functions (YearOf, MonthOf, DayOf) …

The Wiert Corner – Besides the optimised versions of these functions, I learned the most from these comments:  The DivMod should be faster. Should really be a single division. The CPU instruction will give you both div and mod from a single instruction. No point doing the divide twice. ...
