Delphi2Cpp 1.2.0: converts Delphi code for compilers like Visual C++ or gcc now …

The program Delphi2Cpp was made to convert Delphi code to C++. The extended C++ of the CBuilder compiler was the primary target of the first version of Delphi2Cpp, which was published three months ago. With the new update this limitation is overcome, because optionally Delphi properties can be eliminated now. The use of "properties" is a fundamental language feature of Delphi, that makes it difficult to translate it to C++. Only

Delphi2Cpp 1.0.0: Converter from Object-Pascal (Delphi) to C++

The program Delphi2Cpp just has been released, which helps to translate the proprietary programming language Object Pascal - also called Delphi - into the widespread programming language C++. Delphi2Cpp saves all purely mechanical syntactical substitutions and rearrangements of the code in which the largest portion of the translation consists. A lot of more complex translation steps are executed too. However, in most cases a manual post-processing of the produced code will

TextTransformer 1.6.0: conversion of binary files

With TextTransformer 1.6.0 easy development of programs for the processing of binary files is possible now. This is possible because source files can be shown now not only as normal text, but as a binary text and in hexadecimal form too. Binary files are frequently used for the compact storage of data and - opposed to text files - contain many characters which aren't shown in a normal editor. These data

Conversion of arbitrary file formats to XML

TextTransformer supports XML as target format in a special way now. XML is of an eminent importance as it is a widespread standard for the exchange of data between different programs and systems. Moreover, further transformations can be done with XML files by means of XSLT. Therefore it is desirable to be able, as simply as possible, to convert arbitrary file formats to XML. With TextTransformer parsers (text-analyzer) can be

Debugging look-ahead productions

The possibilities for the visual analysis of texts have been extended to the look-ahead analysis in the TextTransformer 1.4. TextTransformer is a development environment for the analysis and automatic evaluation and remodelling of texts. At the analysis of a text disambiguation, i.e. the choice between alternative interpretations, can depend on sections of text which follow at later positions. E.g. the meaning of a letter can depend on the signature, or

TextTransformer 1.3.0: IDE with dockable windows now

TextTransformer 1.3 has a new user-interface with dockable windows. They simplify the development of specific conversion programs and testing them step by step. You can configure the arrangement of the dockable windows freely. When you change between working on a project and debugging it, also a change to the corresponding window layout takes place automatically. So the information important for the respective work mode is represented optimally. E.g., when executing

Processing many text files at once (TextTransformer 1.2.0)

There is a completely redesigned transformation manager now for the convenient choice of lists of source and target texts for a processing by TextTransformer projects. With TextTransformer texts can be evaluated, extracted or converted in an individual way. However, nowadays many software projects don't consist of a single text file any more, but in a variety of files, which can be distributed over different directories. Typical examples are a web

Update: TextTransformer 1.1.0

The abilities of TextTransformer for the analysis of texts are increased by the new possibility to parse text inclusions with separated parser sub-systems. Exemplary examples of text inclusions are comments in programming languages or XML processing instructions. Innumerable further possible applications for the new feature are conceivable. More and more frequently comments not only are used for a freely arranged internal documentation of programming code, but structured comments are used e.g.
