thanks for the direction.
I will experiment with the API.
I think I have seen a delphi 'port' of the API. Is this correct?
Do you think it is usefull to write an delphi/pascal 'howto' to
get newbies (like myself) going on in the project?
Or should I focus on a specific programming issue?
Any ideas are welcome.
I will experiment further with the examples and tests, and see
if I can compile the thing in CBuilder 5 and Delphi 5.
