This is a website I came across earlier but forgot to mention at the time. Rather than just dumping a ton of information lists in your lap, the author deals with each topic in a clear and straight-forward manner. His articles are also written in human form, so it has a bit of warmth to it (at least a lot better than W3Schools, which is primarily hard-core information). So head over to Quirksmode and have a look!
Note: If you are old enough to remember Homesite, which was the #1 HTML/JS editor some 15-18 years ago (today a part of the Adobe Dreamweaver family) then Aptana will be similar but much more advanced. Oh and Homesite was written in Delphi 🙂
Using Smart Pascal for free
Smart Mobile Studio is not just the compiler. The most time-consuming and consequently valuable part of Smart Mobile Studio, is the RTL control architecture, libraries and API’s that have taken years to establish. But you can download and use the command-line compiler without our RTL and ide, as long as you stick to some basic rules:
- You cannot use it for commercial projects
- It is illegal to use it in a competing product
- It is forbidden to use in a production environment
- And naturally you are not allowed to misrepresent or distribute copies
This is pretty much the same rules all companies apply to their product when aspects of it is distributed for free.
But for learning what the compiler does, enjoy oop and all the fancy things object pascal has to offer, well then you can start out with the command-line compiler and later upgrade to a commercial license.
