IDE Fix Pack 6.3.2 for XE2 only

By | June 18, 2018

There was an off-by-one bug in the Win64 Compiler Speed Pack for XE2 since the release of version 6.0. This caused the XE2 dcc64 compiler to generate defective code that caused crashes in the created executable file. The off-by-one bug only affected XE2. When I began writing the patches I used XE4 and all Win64… Read More »

IDE Fix Pack 6.3 released

By | June 17, 2018

The new IDE Fix Pack 6.3 adds some IDE fixes and makes DFM reading a little bit faster due to the usage of buffers on the stack instead of the TBytes heap allocations with unnecessary FillChar calls that were introduced with XE3. The compiler option extension -x-fpr also got a new feature. If a function… Read More »

IDE Fix Pack 6.2

By | January 25, 2018

Delphi 10.2 Tokyo changed how the files for units that are explicitly specified in the project file (dpr/dpk) are found. The IDE Fix Pack’s directory file search cache still made assumptions that were correct in Delphi 2009-10.1 Seattle but aren’t in Tokyo. This could result in an “program or unit xxx recursively uses itself” error… Read More »

Technical the same but different generated code

By | October 31, 2017

While debugging the String4D code to hunt down a bug in the CompilerSpeedPack, I saw a lot of CopyRecord/FinalizeRecord calls with a try/finally that the compiler generated. If you have a record with managed fields (string, interface, …) and use it as a function return type the Delphi compiler will change the function into a… Read More »

IDE Fix Pack 6.1 released

By | October 29, 2017

With the release of IDE Fix Pack 6.1, the Compiler Speed Pack not only makes the compiler compile faster but it can now also change the generated code, something that IDE Fix Pack has never done before. For this, new command line compiler options are introduced. They all start with “-x” (eXtension) followed by the… Read More »

Debugger Callstack Resolver released

By | August 15, 2017

Debugger Callstack Resolver is a Delphi IDE plugin that I wrote in 2011 to make the IDE’s CPU View more readable. It colors different instructions, resolves absolute and memory address jump and call targets and shows their function name if available. It also uses the *.jdbg to show more information (the dcc32 compiler’s jdbg files… Read More »
