compilation with embarcadero Delphi Community Edition

watery's profile image watery posted 4 months ago in General Permalink

I saw that Embarcadero has a free Delphi compiler - a community edition - available for Windows.

I know nothing about the language (I usually work in Java), but was interested in giving a look around it: can this be compiled with the above-mentioned IDE? If so, can anybody give complete instructions about how to do it? I tried to follow the info in the README, but didn't get very far.

Any hint? Or isn't this possible at all?

Yes, I used the community edition of Delphi 10.4 myself, so that should work. I have recently updated to v10.4.1 Enterprise, but until now I think there are no breaking changes for 10.4.

The build section in the readme file is the place to start, once you installed Delphi.

I tried downloading the IDE right after your post, and again now, but I still get 10.3.3 from the Embarcadero download page. I don't know if that's because I already downloaded it (the first time was in august), I wrote to them around a month ago, but got no response.

I guess I'll have to wait until 10.4 will be available.

Thanks anyway.

I'm scratching my head, maybe it was 10.3.3 in the last community edition.

You can still try to load the project using 10.3.3 - maybe you need to tweak here and there.

I tried that before opening this thread, but I don't know anything about Delphi as a language, let alone understand how a whole project is handled inside the IDE.

No problem though, I was just curious to look around, especially the SQL formatting part; I can wait till 10.4 comes out or give it another try when I get more spare time.
