Code Blocks (Corel Paradox and Delphi Cross Reference Guide)

By Mike Prestwood

Corel Paradox versus Delphi: A side by side comparison between Corel Paradox and Delphi.

 
Language Basics
 

Language basics is kind of a catch all for absolute beginner stuff. The items (common names) I chose for language basics is a bit random and include items like case sensitivity, commenting, declaring variables, etc.

Code Blocks

[Other Languages] 

Languages Focus

The rules for code blocks within a language dictate where you can declare variables, how you "bracket" code, etc.

Corel Paradox:   endXxxx

ObjectPAL code blocks are surrounded by statement ending keywords that all use End with camel caps such as endMethod, endVar, endIf, endSwitch, and endTry.

Syntax Example:
method
endMethod
 
var
endVar
 
if
endIf
 
switch
endSwitch
 
try
endTry
Delphi:   begin..end

Object Pascal requires the semi-colon after the "declaration" part.

Syntax Example:
function DoSomething : integer;
var
  a, b : integer
begin
  a := 1;
  b := 2;
  
  result := a + b;
end;
