Stamp Out Spam
by Vicki Nelson

How to fight back against spam and reclaim your inbox. As you may know, the volume of spam messages sent across the Internet has reached epidemic levels. Some industry experts estimate that three out of every five e-mail messages that are sent today are spam. The spam epidemic is costing companies, professionals, and individual users considerable amounts of time, money, and resources.

What is spam, and what can I do about it? Spam is generally defined as an unsolicited mailing, usually sent to many recipients. Most spam is commercial advertising, often for dubious products, get-rich-quick schemes, or quasi-legal services. Spam costs the sender very little to send. Most of the costs are paid by the recipient or the carriers rather than the sender. Some effective methods for preventing your e-mail address from being captured, sold or abused by spammers in the full version of this article. Click the title to read more.

Delphi Prism Overloading (implicit)
by Mike Prestwood

Like Delphi, Prism supports overloading. However, Prism supports implicit overloading (no need for an overload keyword).

by Mike Prestwood

Prism supports both partial classes and partial methods using the keyword partial. A partial method is an empty method defined in a partial class.

Cyborg = public class

public
  constructor ();
  constructor (pName: String );
end ;
Tool Basics Topic:
Download of the Month: ShineOn

A Delphi Prism implementation of the Delphi for Win32 RTL.

Language Basics Topic:
Resource Link of the Month: The Delphi Prism WIKI

This wiki is provided as a central live source of information about Delphi Prism and will be updated in an ongoing process.

Tool Basics Topic:
Question:

Can I share code between a Delphi and a Dephi Prism project? I want to have a single source Win32 and .Net application.


Answer:

No, not really. Because both are Object Pascal based, you could share routines but there are enough syntax differences that make sharing large amounts of code difficult.

Use Oxidizer to help port your Win32 Delphi application to a .Net Prism application.

You can also try out ShineOn which is an implementation of the Delphi for Win32 RTL.
