OpenCL 1.2 for Delphi, fractal demo, Delphi 10

I have updated a sample application published by +André Mussche showing how to use OpenCL with Delphi. My update is for OpenCL 1.2 and Delphi 10 (And all other recent Delphi compiler), fixing all AnsiString issues.

My updated source code is available at http://www.overbyte.be/arch/dump/OpenClFractalDemo20160601.zip

Original post by André Mussche is there: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+AndréMussche/posts/eWcipK16MV7?cfem=1

btw:
1) The original application was written by Maksim Tymkovich (niello) and Alexander Kiselev (Igroman)

2) OpenCL 1.2 for Delphi has been developed by Michal Pohanka http://lab4.fme.vutbr.cz/heatlab/OpenCLforDelphi.html

DirWatch: Delphi 10 in action
In this article, I will show you how I used Delphi 10 Seattle to create a nice application aimed at watching a directory tree. Background: I frequently use shared directories as repository for files. Some user on the network just drops the file in the direc...

Thanks for the confirmation +Peter Gejdeman . You know, I haven't made the change and I think you're using it way more consistently than myself. My purpose is to communicate with a running process under a service via this IPC method. It's funny we're using the same code.

I haven't done very much stress testing of it. When I saw your posting, I went through and looked into the source code for "MsgWaitForMultipleObjects" and found.. 


File: I:\projects\thirdparty\pipes\Pipes.pas 3 occurrences found on 3 lines
  1804:         case MsgWaitForMultipleObjects(1, hEvent, False, INFINITE, QS_SENDMESSAGE) of
  3283:   while (MsgWaitForMultipleObjects(1, FEmpty, False, INFINITE, QS_SENDMESSAGE) = WAIT_OBJECT_0 + 1) do
  4144:      while (MsgWaitForMultipleObjects(1, hThread, False, INFINITE, QS_ALLINPUT) = WAIT_OBJECT_0 + 1) do


In going through my changelog for the unit, I made several changes for XE2 (as I kept it AnsiString) and one change to the "TPipeListenThread.Create()" (see below). 
  // Increment the thread counter
  FPipeServer.FThreadCount.Increment; // * 2010-12-01: MMC -- Moved this line from just after the "inherited Create(TRUE)" to after the assignment has been made to the property

I would like to use a classic Windows style for a TEdit under Android. I mean the 3D look of a TEdit.

Is there something like that already existing?

Anyone having already tried XE5 with BeagleBone Black single board computer running Android Jelly Bean? At US45,- this single board computer is like Raspberry Pi but with much better specs and able to run XE5 program (I think so because it has a Cortex-A8 processor with Neon extension).

Any thought?

FYI: link toBeagleBone black

I'm looking for a low cost "PC on a board" (Single board computer). I need to run Win7 Embedded or Win7 standard. I need Ethernet, USB, PS2 mouse (I have a track ball with PS2 interface), SATA (for SSD), 1 or 2GB or RAM, basic VGA is enough. Serial port is a must but I could use an USB-to-serial converter. Target price is less than US$200,-

Any idea of the best product I could use?

I Googled and there are a lot of products suitable. So what I ask is some real experience. Don't tell me to use Linux because the application already exists on a standard Windows and redeveloping it for Linux would be too much expensive.

Thanks.
