Honestly. I’m seeing people go on and on about that issue, while I can’t help noticing other much bigger issues with Delphi all the time. No PDB support strikes me as a pretty big issue for one, or getting a 64bit compiler at all …
Can anyone give me a good reason why it is a problem that you can’t write the assembly code inline and instead have to use an external file? Microsoft did that as well when they switched to x64 compilers. What’s the issue?
There are only some corner case when assembly is of value nowadays and just about every single line of current inline assembly would have to be changed anyways when porting to x64. I for one welcome that it raises the bar for people who shouldn’t be using assembly in the first place.
