List Processing with Generics and Anonymous Methods: Functional Programming in Delph – Colin Johnsun
In many Delphi applications, it is not uncommon to find code used to manipulate lists of things. It could be a list of numbers or strings or even a list of TPersons or TAccounts. In many of these cases, we would write a block of code embedded in for loops. In this talk, I will be demonstrating an interesting way to process a list of things by using anonymous methods and generic types. I will also be introducing the concept of higher-order functions and if you know about LINQ queries in C# then this may look a bit familiar.
