I was thinking it would be nice to write the core of FastTest as a library and wrap it in a thin exe. This means I could reuse the library in FastCheck to help people solve communication problems...

Howdy Eric,

What exactly do you mean by "library"? I tend to equate "library" with the C/C++ language. And, as Delphi is Pascal based I tend to think of DLL's. Is that whay you mean?

I don't know what you are writing FastCheck in. Is it C/C++ or Delphi? Any-who, I am all for writing modular code, like "black boxes".

Thanks.

I was meaning static library (.LIB) as opposed to dynamic (.DLL). I don't like having to install DLLs, and all the problems they can cause. Surely Delphi can create .LIBs too?

FastCheck is written in C++, but the .LIB format is standard, so as far as delphi knows how to generate one, we should be able to communicate...

Huh, I didn't know that. I guess I wouldn't need to as I've never written a lick of C/C++ code, or, had the need to share my code with C/C++ apps.

I'll look in to it.

Converting a standard .pas unit to a library (shared or static) takes over 18 seconds using Delphi... If you submit a full project justification we'll have our team estimate a schedule... Wink

Yeah OK I guess it could be a library then...

Eric,

I like your idea on library. It would make it modular and portable.

How could I get the latest source code for Fasttest?
This would be my perfect excuse to get back in with pascal since Turbo Pascal day!

Thanks

Jeremy has written FastTest, so you can ask him!
