If you already have a Linux development platform/language, you could reqrite the XP-based program to act as, say, a SOAP web server and write a client on the Linux machine. Or you couldget down to a lower level and use TCP sockets to establish cooperating server/client connects. You might want to look at the Indy networking components.

You will need to buy Kylix though.  You can't compile apps written in Delphi had have them run in Linux.

Hi,

I always wonder why people keep using ODBC <g>.

Most Data Access Libraries for Delphi compile nicely under Linux, ZEOS f.e.

As has been said, you'll also need Kylix to compile under linux.

HTH,

Andrew
