Is anybody out there willing to let me have the source code for TObject.Destroy from Delphi 3?

There might be a question about copyright infringement, but I don't know how valid it is about an outdated product. All I need is that one method.

Well, Delphi 3 is hardly obsolete... maybe not as used as other, newer versions, but not quite a relic yet. <g> As for the copyright infringements... I doubt that there would be any considering Borland ships its source with the Client/Server versions of Delphi. Now how much this is going to men to you when you see the destructor, welllll.....




TObject.Destroy
begin
end;


Of course there is the TObject.Free method which contains some assembler code...


procedure TObject.Free;
asm
        TEST    EAX,EAX
        JE      @@exit
        MOV     ECX,[EAX]
        MOV     DL,1
        CALL    dword ptr [ECX].vmtDestroy
@@exit:
end;



Good luck!!

In D5 (don't know about D3 right now) there are the methods CleanupInstance and FreeInstance. Both methods must not be called directly. Instead they are called automatically after all (overwritten) destructors have been executed.

This question is perhaps not justifiable, and has not received a serious answer.

Poppycock! The question has recieved not one, but two serious answers. Methinks that the points were never meant to be awarded. Truly a Horrid Man!
