Monday 19th February.

Brian Watson described a program he had written to read, format and display XML data. Then John McDonald and Brian went through the results of John’s code review of the program. There was some interesting discussion about finding and avoiding memory leaks, generic lists, and writing safer code.

Brian also described his experiences with VirtualTreeView.

We then did a short quiz on pointers in Delphi, and discussed creating and dereferencing pointers.

The meeting was held at the Melbourne Men’s Shed, situated in the Federation Square Car Park building, off Russell St Extension.
