My first question....
What is a managed record?
My second question....
Why would I need it?
My third question.....
What is different compared to a "normal record"
and compared to FPC's Object data type. eg: TSomeObject = object;
Or is this all about trying to follow Delphi again because they broke
the Object Pascal "Object" type and then reintroduced that same
functionality (because EMBT developers are id**ts these days) using
Records, and magically called it "advanced records". aka Objects - what
Turbo Pascal 7 had.
I'm getting seriously worried about where the Object Pascal language is
heading. It used to be a clean and logical language. Now other languages
look the part much better than Object Pascal.
