A multiplatform
development tool for Linux

Leland Brode

Tuesday September 24th 2002 at 7:00pm
College of DuPage, Building K, Room 161


This presentation will be an overview of Kylix, Borland's Linux Development tool, and its relationship to Borland's Delphi product for Windows. Borland's new GNU General Public License version of Kylix is freely available from the Borland website. The Kylix product offers the same type of GUI Integrated Development Environment for Linux which has been available to Windows developers since the introduction of Microsoft's Visual Basic. The discussion will show the types of Linux applications which can be built with Kylix: console, GUI, database, and webserver. The presentation will include an in-depth look at the Kylix GUI building tools, debugging tools, Object hierarchy, and the portability of GUI applications between Windows and Linux.
