Home * Programming * Languages * Delphi

a programming language dialect of the Object Pascal programming language, a branch of object-oriented derivatives of Pascal, mostly known as the primary programming language of Embarcadero Delphi, formerly CodeGear Delphi, Inprise Delphi and Borland Delphi , designed and implemented by Anders Hejlsberg, the creator of Turbo Pascal. As a chief architect at Borland , Hejlsberg secretly turned Turbo Pascal into an object-oriented application development language, complete with a truly visual environment and superb database-access features. Developer Danny Thorpe chose the name Delphi, in reference to the Oracle at Delphi.

Delphi provides an Integrated development environment for Microsoft Windows applications. Delphi pioneered in rapid application development by introducing an application framework and visual window layout designer that drastically reduced application prototyping times of GUI and Database applications. Delphi XE [1] is now part of Embarcadero RAD Studio [2], including C++Builder and UML modeling [3], still supporting x86 inline assembly [4]. A former Linux version of Borland Delphi, called Kylix discontinued. In 2009, Embarcadero announced 64-bit, Linux and Mac OS support [5] [6] .
