Profiling tools, anyone?

Does anyone have any tools to profile (Virtual) Pascal code?I do have something home-cooked that now just records every call to every procedure, or to be more concrete, every procedure that brackets its code between "//p-in <name of procedure>" and "//p-out" (or a-in/a-out for procedures written in assembler). It works and I could potentially add some RDTSC code to it, but how do I prevent, other than running the program multiple times and averaging the totals, Windows task-switches to…See More

"VP doesn't even reach D4 level, it is closer to D2. Moreover afaik VP has no VCL for which TNT is a component?"

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.MartinSee More

"Found another approach: Double click a VPO file, and open it with Virtual Pascal. Then use GFTE to modify the resulting association."

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.



Do you know of an alternative that it's easy to port to? Do you care if vpascal.ning.com disappears? Or would you like… Continue

Spammers

For some reason, spammers think that by creating 100 fake accounts and having them all post ads for products that help against erectile dysfunction, they are somehow going to get through to customers.



The reality is that all they do is to destroy small communities like this one...



I have just deleted a ton of spam accounts - if I deleted a real one by accident, I am sorry!



I have also added a step whereby I have to approve new members so this should be a problem… Continue

Downloading VP

I still get the occasional email from someone that wants to download VP, and it's clearly not obvious how to do so.


Let me point you to the forum thread that has the latest VP build attached to it, and also points to a few mirrors: Virtual Pascal Download Forum Topic


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.
