    Win XP app fails to start -- missing bcrypt.dll

    This might have something to do with newer OpenSSL Dlls switching from using the Legacy CryptoAPI to using BCryptGenRandom for generating OS Random numbers.

    Delphi compiler need to be opensourced

    Lol, at least we now agree on a common fact that for now Delphi doesn't have a PurePascal EdDSA implementation.

    Delphi compiler need to be opensourced

    Seems you have made up your mind that nothing good and optimal can come out of non native code. In this case, there is very little I can say to convince you otherwise. By the way, the current media player I use is written in JavaScript and it runs beautifully for me on both my Windows and Linux boxes.

    Really? Do we have to go down this road again? ECDSA (Elliptical Curve DSA) <> EdDSA (Edwards Curve DSA). It has a lot of use cases as ECDSA and it is been used in Monero and Nano to mention but a few.

    Really? I have seen highly performant programs including media players written in .NET and even JavaScript.

    This implements just ECDSA using only secp256r1 curve.

    @Joseph MItzen you just analysed everything perfectly from my point of view. 👍

    Yes It is my project and no it doesn't implement Edwards curves.

    Asymmetric Cryptography especially stuffs involving elliptical curves like Edwards curves.

    Unfortunately, the CodeTyphoon team seems more focused on the IDE than the compiler.

    1. Invest enough to cover the cost of further development and improvements to the compiler? At what gain? It's not like the Delphi ecosystem is really booming. 2. An example of such are Cryptographic Libraries and please don't tell me that Delphi can utilize C/C++ libraries because you and I know how unfriendly that can be (especially finding already compiled libraries for other platforms other than windows) coupled with the problem of distributing the extra binary files. Using C++ libraries was ok at a time when Delphi was Windows only but please we are in the Cross Platform era now. And please do note that I am referring to free OpenSource maintained libraries not closed source sharewares.

    While I feel it is not possible for Delphi to open source it's compiler, I highly doubt there are skilled personnels even willing to invest time to improve it for free. The bitter truth is that unfortunately the Delphi ecosystem is not as friendly and lively as other languages ecosystem. A glaring example is the availability of OpenSource libraries to achieve certain operations is no where as vast as that we have in C#, Java or even C++. The VCL and RTL is a different story though.
  13. How do you all test your codebase especially those that use DUnit Testing Framework on mobile devices like Android and iOS. I still do it the old fashion way, compile the demo project with the tests and execute them on my device. while the above works, it's to say the least very stressful. Are there better ways to test my code with DUnit on mobile devices something like a DUnit GUI TestRunner for FMX? Thanks.

    Travis CI joins Idera

    https://blog.travis-ci.com/2019-01-23-travis-ci-joins-idera-inc Does this mean we get to see Delphi support in Travis CI. What do you all think?
  15. I just hope this nice plugins will not be killed slowly by Embarcadero after integration in the IDE like they did with Castalia.

    Complete Boolean Evaluation

    because I was been too meticulous.

    Running UnitTests for Mobile Devices

    Am not sure he is still active on the project. There are open pull requests which are yet to be attended to by him.
  18. I read somewhere online (can't remember where exactly), that StrToUInt64 was buggy in the first version it was released and was fixed in the next compiler release. Anyone have additional information regarding this, (that is what version of Delphi it was first available in and hopefully the version the said bug was fixed in)? Thanks.

    Which version of Delphi was StrToUInt64 introduced in

    Also I just figured out that it was added in XE6. Thanks a lot for the link @Stefan Glienke

    Thanks for replying. Sorry, I feel very stupid, my question was regarding StrToUInt64.

    Running UnitTests for Mobile Devices

    Yes, while it works on Android and with some little changes Mac OS X, I couldn't get it to work on iOS unfortunately.

    Running UnitTests for Mobile Devices

    @John Kouraklis Finally got it to work, below are the steps. 1. Download Angry Port Scanner from Google PlayStore (Do not open) 2. connect your PC and Android to the same WiFi network 3. Open Angry Port Scanner, it will auto select the IP range to scan, in the Ports edit box enter the value 8000-9000 and click the scan icon 4. after the scan is done, it will show you the Open IP and Port, this is the IP and Port we will put in our FMX app. 5. Create a simple GUI FMX app with a button and the tests you want to execute. 6. in the uses clause add (TestInsight.DUnit) , in the OnClick event of the button, add the code below TestInsight.DUnit.RunRegisteredTests('http://IP:PORT'); where IP and PORT are the values we got previously. 7. Compile and deploy the FMX app to your android device, run and click the button 8. go back to your Delphi IDE and open the TestInsight Plugin, you can now see the progress of your Tests. Thanks to everyone who pointed to the right directions that helped me solve this problem.

    Can any one please test if this works on Android because I have tried it on 2 different Android devices now yet no success.

    On my Android or PC?

    Running UnitTests for Mobile Devices

    so from what I can deduce, the connection back to the plugin on my PC via my IP Is not working on Android, can't seem to figure out why. The annoying thing is that it works fine when I compile it and run my test project on Windows.
