How to modify the StringList and ability to debug it?
« on: August 18, 2017, 01:15:26 am »
I wish somebody could give me instructions precise to modify TStringList source code from the base unit and other LCL and instructions to debug them.  Thank you.

What do you want to do for which you find TStringlist has shortcomings?

Just modify the corresponding file and do `make all install=/your/fpc/base/directory` in rtl folder.

I can't say how dummies-friendly it is, but it's the primary source when talking about build system of FPC itself: http://www.stack.nl/~marcov/buildfaq.pdf

You can just derive a class from TStringList and override the methods you want to change.

That's what I would do too... Tstringlist and Tstrings are heavily used and you run the risk of breaking all of the places where it is used.
