My Delphi Race of Languages day 1

I've checked out the progress of some of the other competitors, seems like my late start has put me behind by a few days. That's alright though. My usual approach to a problem that I don't understand, is to do the following:
  1. Use my google-fu to do some research
  2. Get a proof of concept working
  3. Design the actual application
  4. Testing and refinement
So I'm at the google-fu stage. So far, it seems like the way to go in Delphi is to use WMI (Windows Management Interface), which is a part of the Win32 API, but I need to set up my project in RAD Studio to be able to use it properly.

  1. Just wanted to wish you Good Luck in the race. I too am entering, with a Clipboard Utility in C#.NET.

    Should be a good laugh and a good opportunity/excuse to learn new programming skills.
