graph unit for Virtual Pascal (Win32)

I ported wingraph (Stefan Berinde) to VP (latest) via a DLL created by fpc 2.6.4.Be consistent in calling conventions and go by index for export/import.Works nicely, seems fast enough and stable. I could a.o. run the old ARTY demo.Interested? Let me know and I will try to "publish" more...See More

"Sorry the only other question that has piqued my curiosity. Given the expense of the Ning site as stated in various threads since at least 2016, how can this site still be going? Is there some exemption that applies to the site based on its…"

"Hi Robert, Thanks for your message. It is a little sad that the compiler has received so little love over the last few years but having read the history it is not really surprising. I am amazed at the size of the executables it can produce. Compared…"

End of Free Ning - What To Do?

I have just seen the news that Ning is in trouble, have laid off 40% of staff, and will end Free Ning sites (such as this one) in 2 months time, early July 2010.



The cheapest option for retaining this site is $20/year - and it will probably be fine. That option has a maximum of 150 members, and we today have 116 here at vpascal, without large growth prospects.

Spammers
