"VPC is written in assembler, and that makes it very, very hard to update it. It (apparently) also uses Borland code, and that prevents it from being open-sourced. Like you, I would love to see it being updated to cater for more modern CPUs (i.e.…"

Questions about VPC source code

Hello gentlemen!I have two questions about VPC source code. In which kind of code is the compiler written? By which compiler was it compiled?Is there any hope to see one day the compiler source code become open source? It would be interesting and, why not, it would allow someone to restart the project.See More

"A good way to do this is to use a tDlgWindow as main window. If you need many options, as the InputBox you found, you can create controls or edit their properties dynamically."

"Thank you for your answer, Alcatiz. Yes, one would think that you are a real Australian man. :) Indeed, the tool looks simple, but it's very well done. I was simply wondering if I could open a tFileNameDlg directly from a console application,…"

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

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.
