I do NOT want to start any "my tool is better than yours" war here, I would just
like to let Olivier know that I too was a VB programmer, and converted to Delphi
with the help of a fellow programmer I met in the Doom editing mailing list. If
you have a basic knowledge of Pascal, you're more than 1/2 way there. IT's just as
easy a tool to use as VB, once you know a few tricks.

If you have any interest in learning this tool, Olivier, please contact me
privately. I'd be happy to help in any way I can, including sharing source with my
Delphi-converted DoomCAD to get you started.
