Delphi-like Component Packages


The mechanism of the delphi .bpl components is similar to the ActiveX .ocx components, they are simply .dll files that act as parts of a program, that's why Delphi can build ActiveX easy as well as native .bpl.
Borland decided to keep .so files on linux.
Making them available in Lazarus is like making a .dll/.so that contains user interface functions.
I hope they will be supported soon without the need to recompile Lazarus that wil be much slower as the project is growing. :wink:
