Mixing .Net and Assembly Language in a standalone 64-bit exe

Building a standalone 64-bit .Net .exe file that is statically linked with an Assembly Language compiled object file is something I would say “is not possible” a few months ago. Actually, it is possible, because .Net has all sorts of tricks to create the illusion that it is what it is not not. Let’s read my page about “Mixing .Net and Assembly Language in a standalone 64-bit exe” and see how this can be done and in 64-bit (of course can be done in 32-bit as well)

Using C object files with Delphi XE2

Now, that Delphi XE2 can link with COFF .obj files, let’s run Visual Studio 2010, compile some ‘C’ and see how to handle that within Delphi. Click HERE to read!

More about Assembly Language and Delphi (64-bit and 32-bit)

Things are like this. We stay a long time without posting then comes a fever and we post two times in a row. It happen yesterday and today we are here again to write about a related subject, How to use Assembly Language with Delphi 64-bit (and 32-bit as well)

64-bit Basm with Delphi XE2

After a long time without posting in this blog, I decided it was about time.

I was trying the new Delphi XE2, to see if there was anything really useful and worthwhile on it. To my surprise, Delphi XE2 is the product to change the route to dead that Delphi was following.

I and thousands of others always thought that was not worthwhile to upgrade from Delphi 5 or Delphi 7, unless we prefer bloated, slower and more buggy programs.

Well, things appear to be changing. Delphi XE2 is excellent value, particularly if you were waiting for the long promised 64-bit compiler.

Not that Delphi XE2 is bug free, not that its documentation is good (it is terribly bad), not that it has a good price (it is extremely expensive, namely for Europeans. Embarcadero, Microsoft and many other American companies suck for the price differentiation – and I am not talking about VAT).

Anyway, because Delphi XE2 brings somethig new, I rolled up my sleeves and wrote an article about BASM for 32-bit and 64-bit Delphi. Read it!

Simulate Ctrl-Alt-Del

As promised, I am posting today an amazing jewel. Follow the link or click the page called simulate ctrl-alt-del on the side bar.
If you are the sort of developer that believe that .Net programming is all you need, don’t bother reading it. I am starting to like .Net but am still convinced that the real fun lies in doing things in the old fashioned way. This is the way Microsoft itself does the things while at the same time pushes everybody to do things in a different way.

If you like, or dislike the Ctrl-Alt-Del article, please cast your vote. It will help me decide if I should continue posting here this sort of jewels.

Welcome!

I will be using this blog to sport some rare developer’s code.
Because rare is something unfrequent, please don’t expect the blog to be updated frequently!
However, I have a number of undergoing hot developments which I plan to post here in the upcoming months (or years), I can’t establish a schedule because many other important projects take much of my time.
To celebrate the Grand Opening I have an extremely valuable jewel, which I will post here in the first week of May.
No more hints at this time!
