Cosmetic upgrades to DelphiCodeCoverage

After rediscovering DelphiCodeCoverage, I had made a few cosmetic and functional upgrades to its HTML Report.
I have now pushed a few more rounds of upgrades for better looks and usability. In case they are not merged or you want to test run future changes, you can check my fork of the repo, though for stability stick to the official repository maintained by ekot1.

Here is a visual summary of the changes, form original state to current one. (more…)

Spotlight on Date/Time parsing and formatting

As a bunch commits were just made, it is a good opportunity for a spotlight on dwsDateTime and TdwsFormatSettings.

The class was initially born out of two needs:

  1. to properly handle per-script date FormatSettings, with multiple scripts running in the same or different threads.
  2. to have date formatting and parsing be unambiguously based on the date format string.

Delphi Code Coverage alive and kicking

Recently noticed DelphiCodeCoverage had a new home on GitHub, with several updates that make it stable. I had been it in a previous incarnation to assess DWScript test coverage, and help pick which aspects of the engine were in need of extra tests.

The DWScript tests can be quite heavy on exceptions, sub-processes and multithreading. The tests go after checking all things that should fail do fail as they should. That was a bit too much stress for the previous versions, which would occasionally crash. I am happy to say those issues are gone from the current version of DelphiCodeCoverage!

DWScript now compatible with Delphi 11

Just pushed a few changes to the DWScript repository for compatibility with the just released Delphi 11 Alexandria.

The only change required was related to a fix of the Delphi compiler, which now properly has integer overflow checks controlled by $OVERFLOWCHECKS while they were previously controlled by $RANGECHECKS.

I also added support for the Delphi 11 dialect for binary literals (starting with %). DWScript already supported binary literals with the “0b” prefix since 2012 (as in C), I had been hoping the % symbol would not be sacrificed for this purpose, but oh well. (more…)
