I have a text program I made in Delphi 4 in Windows and I would like someone to convert it to a Linux program for me.
If anyone would do this for me, please e-mail me at:
Chris_Boden@yahoo.com

Thanks.

If your app doesn't rely on win32 api's (mostly vcl & logic code) you could prob. recompile it under kylix with minimal difficulty.

You can even download Kylix Open Edition from Borland and test it out yourself

or you can use free pascal and compiles it, alternativly you can also download Lazarus and you will have a delphi's like gui

go to:
www.freepascal.org or www.lazarus.freepascal.org


you might need to convert the win API calls to those of linux, but if you dont rely on API call then i think you don;t have a problem porting it to FPC

Why u do not use a WINE? This is a win emulation for win programs.

I don't use WINE because the program would still be Winblows native.  It would take longer to load.
