Ability Office

Ability PhotopaintAbilityAbility Database
The framework for the entire suite was changed from Borland's Object Windows Library to Microsoft Foundation Class Library resulting in better performance and the database was re-written to use the Microsoft Jet Database Engine. Since then, modules have been added (an image editing module in 2000 and a presentation module in 2004) but the architecture has broadly remained the same with the step to a fully Unicode version being made in 2008. Ability Office is 100% C++, entirely 32-bit and uses the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 compiler.

Tchart (disambiguation)

The name TChart was first used and made publicly available when TeeChart was released to the public domain in 1995 to conform with standard Visual Component Library naming convention current at the time as used with Borland's Delphi1 (now Embarcadero Delphi) compiler. TAChart's TChart, is the main charting component for TAChart. TAChart is a component for the Lazarus IDE that provides charting services. The name TChart was first used and made publicly available by TAChart with its release to the public domain in 2005.

Turbo Pascal

Borland PascalPascalBorland Pascal 7
The support for Windows programs required the ObjectWindows library, similar but not identical to that for the first release of Borland C++, and radically different from the earlier DOS Turbo Vision environment. Turbo Pascal was superseded for the Windows platform by Delphi; the Delphi compiler can produce console programs in addition to GUI applications, so that the use of Turbo and Borland Pascal became unnecessary. Borland released Turbo Pascal for Macintosh in 1985. Much like versions 1 to 3 for other operating systems, it was written in compact assembly language and had a very powerful IDE, but no good debugger.

Visual IRC

VersusVersus programming language
Scripts can define classes and work with objects and methods instead of textual data and aliases; however, in practice, OVS is mostly used to manipulate the VCL objects that make up ViRC's interface. Scripts are stored in files, usually with a .vsc file extension, though the .lib extension is sometimes used. A Versus script file simply contains statements to be interpreted when the script is loaded; any blocks defined in a script (see below) will replace blocks defined with the same name by previous scripts. Aliases, methods (including constructors and destructors), events, menu items, and toolbar items are referred to as routines or code blocks.

Pervasive PSQL

Pervasive.SQL or PSQLrelational database engine
Pervasive Direct Access Components (PDAC) are a set of Visual Component Library (VCL) components that enable direct access to both MKDE and SRDE for Embarcadero Delphi and C++ Builder environments. License Administrator utility handles license management activities. Notification Viewer utility displays licensing-related messages logged by the PSQL engine. Monitor utility checks and displays activities and attributes of both engines, including resource usage, session information, and communication statistics. Pervasive System Analyzer utility tests the connections between the engines and within the network and displays information about system components.

Free Component Library

Although it is intended to be compatible with Delphi's Visual Component Library (VCL) the FCL is restricted to non-visual components. On the other hand, its functionality partly exceeds that of the VCL. Visual components are provided by the Lazarus Component Library (LCL). The FCL is based on the Free Pascal Runtime Library (RTL). * FCL documentation in the Free Pascal Wiki. Complete online reference.


Ashton Tate
Although DOS based, Framework supported a fully functional GUI based on character graphics (similar to Borland's OWL). Framework eventually got locked into an industry battle, primarily with Lotus Symphony, and later with Microsoft Works. The market was never large to begin with, as most customers chose to purchase the large, monolithic versions of applications even if they never used the extra functionality. Borland later sold Framework to Selections & Functions, who continue to sell it today. MultiMate was a word processor package created to copy the basic operation of a Wang dedicated word processor workstation on the PC.

GameMaker Studio

GameMaker: StudioGame MakerGameMaker
Version 6.0 (October 2004) introduced limited functionality for use of 3D graphics, as well as migrating the runtime's drawing pipeline from VCL to DirectX. Growing public interest led Overmars to seek help in expanding the program, which led to partnership with YoYo Games in 2007. From this point onward, development was handled by YoYo Games while Overmars retained a position as one of company's directors. Version 7.0 was the first to emerge under this partnership. The first macOS compatible version of program was released in 2009, allowing games to be made for two operating systems with minimal changes.

Oxygene (programming language)

OxygeneDelphi PrismOxygene programming language
On top of the language difference, the Visual Component Library framework is not available in Oxygene (formerly called Prism). This makes porting even more difficult because classic Delphi code relies heavily on the VCL. * unit: Replaced with the namespace keyword. Since Oxygene doesn't compile per-file but per-project, it does not depend on the name of the file.

Tahoma (typeface)

For example, a new Delphi VCL application defaults its font to Tahoma. The Wine project includes the free and open-source fonts Wine Tahoma Regular and Wine Tahoma Bold released under GNU Lesser General Public License designed to have identical metrics to the Tahoma font. This was done because Tahoma is available by default on Windows, and many applications expect the font to be available. Before Wine included a Tahoma replacement font, some applications, such as Steam, would not display any text at all, rendering them nearly unusable. *Verdana * Microsoft typography information on Tahoma

Precompiled header

Precompiled headerspre-compiled
For example, when working with the Visual Component Library, it is common to include the header first which contains most of the commonly used VCL header files. Thus, the precompiled header can be shared across all project modules, which dramatically reduces the build times. In addition, C++Builder can be instrumented to use a specific header file as precompiled header, similar to the mechanism provided by Visual C++.
