    Okay, I know this is a loser's way out, but...

    I'm working on a very small application that does some file access stuff on the computer before launching a browser. Even though I have Delphi, I'm using an old copy of Turbo Pascal to code it, since I don't know how to do this in Delphi (am new to it) and I couldn't figure out how to properly do this kind of app as a console app in Delphi.

    My question is, is there a way to turn the code from 16-bit pascal code into 32-bit Delphi console code? I don't know how well a 16-bit app would run on the most recent versions of Windows, and what file access issues might appear.

    Hi, I'm sorry this hasn't been answered yet, there aren't may programmers here. I am hoping for that to change though. You seem to know your stuff though. :)
