A powerful, underrated, programming language and RAD IDE produced by Borland. Delphi is not as popular in the US as it is in Europe and Japan, but its users know what a valuable development tool it really is.
Delphi was first released in 1995. The current version of Delphi is Delphi 2005.
Unlike Visual Basic, Delphi does not require a programmer to ship their application with runtime DLLs.
