In Reply to Re: convert Pascal to Delphi posted by Albert C p16043 on June 26, 2008: : Hi all
: Delphi is better suited for this conversion than VB, because Delphi code is written in Borland's "Object Pascal".
: Which version/type of Pascal is it, and from which company? If it's Borland, a lot of Pascal statements are also understood by Delphi.
: The old Pascal versions don't know about windows, so you'll have to rewrite most "displaying" routines to show results in a Delphi "form" (a window). Or maybe you only want text input and text results as console output in in a "DOS-window"?
: If you give me some feedback, I'll see what we can do ;)
: Greetings, Albert
Many thanks for your reply and sorry for the delay in replying
I have got a copy of Delphi 7 which is what I intended to use and I can build the 'pretty' interface in the Delphi
the original is a DOS version and will run in a dos window without the print routines.
I have no idea what version/type of pascal it is a it hasjust been handed to me in a roundbout way with the intention of bringing it into the 21st century and I thought I could rewrite it in VB but the way the program works using arrays doesn't lend itself to VB
I have ordered some litrature on the Delphi programming language to try and get a bit further
but i would appreciate any pointers
