Recursive dir scan

Does anyone have something that just goes from the current directory down and lists all files. I'm sure I could write it myself, but that means diving into the manuals, and right now I'm a tiny bit lazy...See More

TNT Unicode component for Virtual Pascal ?

Has any one converted the TNT Control codes package that supports Unicode controls on an ascii based system such as mine (Delphi 4) ? The free version of TNT only supports from Delphi 6 onwards and into Delphi XE.

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.

Happy downloading!

New VP community

After the main Virtual Pascal site went down 2 years or so ago, I have occasionally received email from someone that wants to know what is up with VP - and I didn't have a good answer other than "sorry".



With this new site, there will once again be a platform for users of VP to communicate, share ideas, files and thoughts - I encourage you to use it.



I don't intend to do any more with VP than I have before, but will occasionally have a look to see how it goes.
