There is off course room for this in the idea I had. Personally I would
prefer source, (delphi source in special), both to learn from and
use only partly or similar.

Should I ever get the time, and disk quota, I would love to include
general libs as either DLL's, DCU, OBJ, OCX or whatever.

Anyway. I received respons from several people. I'm currently trying
to build some pages that has some of the above material.
(Note however, that these I will never be able to do - even remotly -
what b. does. I know my limits ;-).
I hope these pages can serve as a starting ground for Quake/Delphi coders.
I will try to get my act together and put them up real soon.

NB: I will include on the pages, the names of all people that wrote me.
(Not their mail, but their names and email adresses.).
Should anyone wish _not_ to be on this list, please mail me again.
(I know. It should be the other way around, but taking the purposes of
the mails into account, I hope this is okay).

Once again ; Are you interessted in developing in Delphi, feel free
to mail me about what you are doing, etc.
