fd2pascal - Free Pascal forms description to pascal program converter
fd2pascal [-compensate] [-altformat] [-main] [-callback] filename
reads a XForms designer file (
) and creates pascal code to create the form
described in the file. The pascal code is written to a file with the same
name as the input file, but with extension
if a file with that name already exists, then it will be renamed to a file
with the extension
fd2pascal has a small number of options to control its behaviour:
By default, a record type is emitted for the form definition, with a field
for each widget (object) on the form. The alternate form declares a global
variable for the form and each widget on the form.
If this option is given then a call to fl_adjust_form_size is emitted after
the form is created.
If this option is given, then a callback procedure is generated for each
widget on the form.
By default, a unit is created which can be included in the uses clause of
a program. If this option is specified, a program file is emitted instead.
