Instead of drudging through a million documents that cover every end-case under the sun, here’s a simplified, abridged set of instructions on how to compile x64 applications for windows using Lazarus 1.2.6. It may also work with future, newer versions of Lazarus. Continue reading “Compiling x64 in 32-bit Lazarus 1.2.6”
x86/x64 Delphi, Lazarus, C#, and C++ Compared in Raw Computational power
As part of my research into the amount of effort it would take to invent a new Object Pascal compiler and language variant, I decided to take some time to dig into the ASM code that gets generated when performing some really simple computations in Delphi and compare the speed of the operations. I then expanded my tests to include competing compilers. Continue reading “x86/x64 Delphi, Lazarus, C#, and C++ Compared in Raw Computational power”
Glaring Bugs still make Firemonkey Apps Unpublishable as of XE7.
I really wish I didn’t have to write these trolling blogs about Delphi all the time. Truth is, I have really liked the tool for all of my 20-year career as a programmer. I still use it every day. I want to see it successful. I think that is one of the reasons I dish out “tough love” all the time.
Right now I am stuck though. Continue reading “Glaring Bugs still make Firemonkey Apps Unpublishable as of XE7.”
