Thanks Sven. Records/objects/classes in Pascal feel very confused right now. Records are moving in the direction of legacy style “objects” which are allocated on the stack so I wonder why objects just don’t replace records already? Having said that why don’t classes just replace records/objects except they allocate on the stack? These 3 distinct constructs don’t really make sense more imo.
