Borland Community: Prepare for Kylix: The Compiler and RTL

“Recent articles and Borland/Inprise press announcements have
stirred up a lot of questions lately. Perhaps the question on many
Delphi and C++Builder developers’ lips is ‘Just what exactly is
Kylix?’ We diligently refer them to the Borland/Inprise Kylix press
announcement and the Kylix Q&A article, but invariably the
response is ‘Yes, yes, that’s all very nice, but that’s marketing
stuff. Where’s the real info? What will the nuts and bolts look
like? What will port, what won’t?’ “

“This is the first in a series of Borland community articles
intended to brief you, the Delphi and C++Builder developer, on
Kylix technical bits that you need to be aware of to prepare
yourself and your code for possible porting or migration to the
Linux universe.
This is a briefing of directions, issues, and
solutions currently under evaluation, not a technical specification
cast in stone.”
