Version      : 1.0
Date         : 2005-12-04
Category     : Miscellaneous
Supported OS : All
Description  :
CompactUtils is a small drop-in replacement for Sysutils (and even some some classes).
The original Sysutils is a convenient unit, but was not created to take advantage of smartlinking. 
Many of the functions in Sysutils do not rely on finalization and initialization code, yet they still haul in about 60K of it. 
CompactUtils are a mixture of some copy/pasting right from the sysutils unit, along with some small compact stringlists and additional string utilities. 
This project is on SVN and Linux is just a few lines of code away from being 100 percent supported. The aim will be for every single possible function from sysutils to be available in CompactUtils, taking advantage of smartlinking in every case! This is *not* a rewrite from scratch, of the sysutils unit. Much of this is simple copy and pasting, and knowledge of smartlinking.
