The latest 1.6 Lazarus is excellent and starts up in seconds it works pretty good and has features Delphi does not.
FPC has its own generics and a Delphi compatible one is available on source forge, and many Delphi components are available such as virtual tree view lots more as well. In FPC mode you can do things Delphi cannot like using strings in case statements and handy short cuts like += The LCL is also fully cross platform and you can create GUI and daemon apps for Linux. Sure if has some bugs but they do frequent releases and if we can get all those talented Delphi ide hackers involved 😀 "'Im in fact very impressed with the compiler itself, but a bit letdown by Lazarus IDE. Hopefully in the future FPC/Lazarus would catch up with Delphi should it end.” -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://lists.elists.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
