Install Info

The Console Application Runner Classes and associated documentation and demo program source files are supplied in a zip file. Before installing, or using, you need to extract all the files from the zip file, preserving the directory structure. The following files will be extracted:

  • PJConsoleApp.pas – The source code of the console application runner classes.
  • Docs\ChangeLog.txt – The project's change log.
  • Docs\Documentation.URL – Shortcut to the project's online documentation.
  • Docs\MPL-2.0.txt – Mozilla Public License v2.0.
  • Docs\ReadMe.htm – The project's read-me file.

In addition to the above files you will find numerous demo projects in the Demos sub-directory.

There are three possible ways to use the units.

  1. The simplest way is to add PJConsoleApp.pas to your projects as and when you need it.
  2. To make the unit easier to re-use you can either copy it to a folder on your Delphi search path, or add the folder where you extracted the units to the search path. You then simply use the units as required without needing to add them to your project.
  3. For maximum portability you can add the units to a Delphi design time package. If you need help doing this see here.
