You are crying "HELP!!!" - but who can help you ?
Jump directly to:
Keep cool - most of the questions and problems typically arising during a programmer's
working day have already been asked - and answered - some time ago. Sometimes even many
times, and in 98% of all cases you can be sure that the answer to YOUR question already
waits for you, you just have to know WHERE to look for it.
The following is a collection of the best information resources about Delphi you can
find in the Internet, check them out, you'll wonder what you are able to find there !
Mailing lists are great information resources which allow you to share your
experiences with others and ask questions yourself to hundreds of subscribers.
Mails with questions and answers are usually sent to a Mailinglist-Server which will
distribute them to all subscribers worldwide. TRY IT OUT - it's a great help !
At e-mail subsriptions, please let the subject line empty and use only the first line of the message body.
Once you subscribed, most of the lists provide commands to retrieve past articles via the listserver. Beside
that, some of the lists are archived by Reference.com - see description here or on my
"Tips and Tricks" section.
At some of the mailing lists the correct subscribing-commands change from time to time -
if one of them doesn't work, just try it again with the correct syntax which you'll
receive from the mailing list server. Please don't forget to send me a short
me about the correct syntax to give me a chance for correcting it on this page for
other interested visitors.
