I'm sorry, but I don't think this can be done. On the bright side, you can have fun with my graphics library, gLib, available at: http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Pines/2690/

it draws fire and loads PCXes and TGAs.

What a wonderfully inane response from mrosen...

BP7 does compile windows apps.  Unfortunately only 16 bit
apps.  But it should be NO PROBLEM for BP7 to create an
internet app...you will need the 16-bit Winsock.dll...I
think it comes with W95.

You will also need a good book on using Winsock (it is not
trivial).  A good book, though only with C++ examples, is
"Developing for the Intenet with Winsock" by the Coriolis
Group Press.

So yes...you can do an internet app in BP7...but I wouldn't
suggest it...it will be a big task...

My suggestion is to pick up Delphi1 or Delphi2...you can get marvelous
components that will enable to do the tasks you require less
painfully.

But you'll have to decide on what is best for you...

BTW, I don't have any gLib's for you to download.
