Hi,

I would like to know if Delphi can be used on a macintosh. Is there a Mac version of Delphi?

Say, I develop a application on Delphi-Windows NT, then can I port it to to an mac OS? Will there be any problems?

Kindly Help me.

Hi,

unfortunately, there was never a version of Delphi for the Mac nor will there one be in the future because the market is much too small. Even with Linux (which has less than 3% of the desktop market) the decision to port Delphi over took a long while until they made it.

Ciao, Mike

Is there such a thing as a PC emulator for the Mac? That MIGHT be a way to run your Delphi applications (I certainly wouldn't advise you to try running Delphi itself) work but I think you're going to hit problems. I could go into a tirade of abuse about Macs being awful but I won't

Oh yes, AFAIK there are a couple of emulators but I have heavy doubts that you can run Delphi under their control.

Ahem, devarajanmn, you should perhaps not use the grading to express your disappointment about a negative answer. A C grading is here considered as being a barely acceptable answer which means: "Ok, it works somehow but otherwise the answer is nearly unusable". You should keep in mind that the grading tells other people about the quality of my answers and I don't consider my answer here as being bad.

Just because Mike couldn't solve your problem does not mean that he should get a bad grade. He DID answer your question. The fact that it was a negative answer does not make it bad
