1. History: WINCE Point of sale

    This is a screenshot of old project for WinCE mobiles, POS, Mobile Point Of Sale, I called it MPOS, it is a commercial project and I am owned it anymore after I left company.
    It is built using Lazarus-IDE and Freepascal, but most classes compiled in both Delphi for Windows and Lazarus for WINCE and Windows too.

    Only front page designed in Lazarus, using SQLite database, and many of my opensource library.

    Controls that I used it are on github

    Also icons I opened it public at github too

  2. What the disappoints points on D [draft]

    Ok, after i tried a good project on D, i have some disappoint points.

    1- GC, huge memory

    2- constructors not auto inherited into derived classes

    3- Paths to the sources, same as old languages, compiler can not find the sub-path

    Note:
    Add all d files to compiler command, or you can use file @yourconfig to put it there
    Add Paths -Iyourpath to the compiler
    For packages add the parent path for your package with -I

    4- Debugging in Windows, GDB not supported


  3. From Delphi to D

    You can take D as easy bridge to learn C++, or you can take D as modern programming language and replaces the ancient Pascal or even C.

    MetaClass

    “Class References” in Delphi/Pascal

    SuperClass = class
        x: integer;
        constructor Create(value: integer)
        begin
          x := value;
        end;
    end;
    
    SubClass1 = class(SuperClass)
    end;
    
    SubClass2 = class(SuperClass)
    end;
    
    MyMetaClass = class of SuperClass;
    
    //Assigning MetaClass of subclass, 
    //compiler only accept classes that derived from SuperClass
    
    var
       MC: MyMetaClass;
    
    //Assigning
       MC = SubClass1;
    
    //Creating object
    
       MyObj = MC.Create(10);

  5. MiniLib on Git

    MiniLib, http://sourceforge.net/projects/minilib/

    Git now is the version control,  instead of SubVersion, for 2 of reasons.

    1 – I like to work offline, commenting and show log, while I can’t have a permanent internet connection.

    2 – Branching merging, it merge the full history from where to everywhere.

    But I still like the version numbers in SVN it is more useful and it is easy human trace the changes.
