RIP Rudy Velthuis
« on: January 06, 2020, 05:13:27 pm »
Just read on the Delphi forum (Delphi Praxis) that Rudy Velthuis has passed away. A big loss for the Pascal community, he will be sorely missed.

Shocked to learn that bad news.
Some years ago we had some email discussions together and we met at BorCon a few times.

Smart and friendly man.

I liked his series on header translation most.

I studied his article on floating point numbers quite a bit.
It helped me patching the floating point helpers.

I am very sad to know that the Delphi/Lazarus community has lost another great programmer and evangelist.
