First of all, hello. My name is Jon (BadQuatna) Sawyer and I’m somewhat
to ruby. I am an amateur programmer and program as a hobby, which you
not guess since it consumes so much of my time. I’ve never really
anything useful so you probably haven’t heard of me. I’ve been
in Pascal since I was 12 (I’m 22 now) and have tried many other
but none of them really bonded to me… until ruby… which I’ve fallen
love with. It has finally replaced my addiction to Pascal as a
syntactically cleaner, more concise language.
However, as much as I love programming in ruby… I do still have
for pascal and sometimes think certain, low-level things would be much
efficient in pascal objects… If only there were a way for linking to
at the hip…
And that is the entire reason I’ve joined the ruby-talk ML… To
the concept, if anyone is interested in talking with me about it.
If there is not a clean way of doing it then we might as well not… and
clean I mean it should not be much harder to use Pascal objects in Ruby
Ruby objects in pascal… anything requiring a great deal of “handling”
to accomplish this would ruin the idea.
Last but not least when I speak of pascal I refer specifically to the
FreePascal dialect… The FreePascal compiler is very good at
Pascal code with C code and I think is uniquely suited for this problem.
Anyone interested please reply. You can try to hunt me down on
irc.freenode.net in #fpc, #ruby-lang, #ruby4fpc ect as BadQuanta but I
cannot guarantee when I will be on.
