Looks quite tricky stuff...You could try translating it, but as you indicate
it would not be easy...it'd be better IMHO to keep it as C++ & interface to
it, because that way you would be able to take advantage of the testing done
by the author & others & not have to re test extensively. Any faults flagged
by other C++ users could be easily incorporated - retesting & then finding
the faults would be non trivial I guess... 

So my vote is for the wrapper... assuming that can be done easily...others
will tell you about that! 

Regards John

Hello all,

I'm interested in geometric algorithms and I do most of my serious work in
Pascal.  The link below is to a polygon overlay algorithm in C++.


It is quite beyond me to translate this into object Pascal of any flavor.
If it was possible to translate it into Pascal, could the resulting
translation be used by all Pascal programmers in accord with the licensing
scheme accompanying the original C++ code?

Would it be better to compile the PolyBoolean C++ code as, say, a .DLL and
then write an interface to it in Pascal.

Would anyone care to help in advising me on these matters?  Thanks.

Get off couch, Ottawa tells overweight kids 
Last Updated Fri, 05 Apr 2002 23:22:23 

EDMONTON - Canadian children are increasingly overweight and that spells
trouble for the country's medical system, Health Minister Anne McLellan
says. She wants kids to get off the couch and out the door. The minister has
her work cut out for her, according to Sue Varano, who teaches at St.
Cyprian Catholic School in Toronto. "They spend a lot of time in front of
the TV, also playing video games, less time playing outside."
