About my personal coding experience

My first computer was a Sinclair ZX81 - it was pretty basic - just as its language: BASIC. It was quickly followed by a Sinclair ZX Spectrum before I switched to an IBM PC compatible.

I started coding seriously back in the eighties using Borland's Turbo Pascal 3. In the 90s Borland's Delphi 2 Standard Edition became my favourite language.

Delphi is the most successful Pascal-dialect worldwide. Part of its success is the VCL (Visual Component Library) which allows even unexperienced people to write stable Windows-applications. The only drawback is their size. A simple "Hello World" results in an EXE somewhere between 170kB and 350kB depending on the Delphi-Version used!

That's why I avoid using the VCL. I write old-style Pascal-code instead (nonVCL)- the same way I did with Turbo Pascal thirty years ago. I won't publish my code but here's a code-snippet with the principle.

In 2010 I started using the superior Free Pascal compiler. As in Delphi I don't use the DCL/FCL, it's still pure Object Pascal…
