Just downloaded and installed Delphi 11.1, and all the unit tests passed without a glitch. So I can announce that DWScript is compatible with Delphi 11.1 for Win32 and Win64! You can find links to all the Delphi 11.1 release details on Marco’s blog.
In other news, the tip of the DWScript repository is considered stable, but a round of core changes were made a few days ago. The last stable state just before the round of changes can be found in the DWScript Releases on the GitHub mirror. The next round of changes likely be able to will rip out the stack from the engine, and transition to closures.
After rediscovering DelphiCodeCoverage, I had made a few cosmetic and functional upgrades to its HTML Report.
I have now pushed a few more rounds of upgrades for better looks and usability. In case they are not merged or you want to test run future changes, you can check my fork of the repo, though for stability stick to the official repository maintained by ekot1.
Here is a visual summary of the changes, form original state to current one. (more…)
As a bunch commits were just made, it is a good opportunity for a spotlight on dwsDateTime and TdwsFormatSettings.
The class was initially born out of two needs:
- to properly handle per-script date FormatSettings, with multiple scripts running in the same or different threads.
- to have date formatting and parsing be unambiguously based on the date format string.
Recently noticed DelphiCodeCoverage had a new home on GitHub, with several updates that make it stable. I had been it in a previous incarnation to assess DWScript test coverage, and help pick which aspects of the engine were in need of extra tests.
The DWScript tests can be quite heavy on exceptions, sub-processes and multithreading. The tests go after checking all things that should fail do fail as they should. That was a bit too much stress for the previous versions, which would occasionally crash. I am happy to say those issues are gone from the current version of DelphiCodeCoverage!
When a double is neither greater nor lesser, is it equal ?
This is assumed in some implementations like for RTL’s VarCompareValue and other function that return the result of the comparison.
In those function you can see code like (more…)
