Delphi XE7


#1

Is TOAD being developed with Delphi XE7?


#2

I think that Toad is in “migration” phase to C#, but still has many elements from Delphi. Which version … can see if you find any “.bpl” or grep with Delphi pattern in installation directory.


#3

Toad.exe is written in Delphi XE2 and is not being migrated to any other language.

Here is a small example of our source. I’ll let our users debate the language specifics.

Still using UTF-8 then, that’s just so “Dark Ages” don;t you think! :wink:
I remember writing Cobol Programs on those punch cards, them were the days! Took a day to get a program compilation done and your listing back to fix the typos. Try telling the kids today that, they won’t believe you!

Just remember, if it weren’t for C, you would have been programming in OBOL!

Old joke…still bad.

I hear ya Norm.

I’ve been programming 33 years. Started on COBOL and punch cards on an old IBM-029 and an IBM 360/30. We thought we had made it to the big time when we got
a 129 and could program our tab stops and backspace to correct before “releasing” the card to be punched.

If we were ever foolish enough to shut the whole thing down we had a paper tape to IPL the system. And that was in 1981! lol

Arg! I remember bringing down the whole student partition on our IBM 4341 (w/8MB of “core”) because I forgot to put a “STOP RUN” in an unreachable part of my CICS program.

After 3 runs and the whole class grumbling yet again that the system went down, the operator taped my code to their window and circled my name and the STOP RUN that the COBOL compiler generated for me and executed, which proceeded to stop the entire CICS partition instead of just my program. Eep.

Doesn’t seem like that happened 27+ years ago until I think about it…

My biggest nightmare back in 1976 was letting a Fortran deck drop on the floor and all cards getting shuffled. Workaround: labeling each statement and adding GOTO at the end of the line. Efficiency wasn’t important, we were already glad that we got things working.

I remember the excitement I experienced when I first got my hands on a Harwell in 1962…right up until I dropped and smashed one of the Dekatron gas-filled
tubes it used to hold a single digit. I spent the entire night designing a different algorithm requiring less memory to get my project done on time the following morning!
