Delphi API to the ShapeLib version 1.2.9, written by Frank Warmerdam.

This API enables the access to the widely used ArcView® Shape format by the usage of the OpenSource Shapelib 1.2.9 library written by Framk Warmerdam.

The distribution contains the tha adopted sources and a Makefile to create the DLL and a small demo application under the Borland compiler environment.

To compile this stuff you will need a free BCC 5.5 compiler. You can download this compiler from http://www.borland.com. To create the library change to the directory

\lib
and modifiy the directory parameters for the delphi and the bcc55 installation in this entries in the
Makefile.bcc
. here  
BCCROOT=c:\bin\bcc55
  and here  
DCCROOT=C:\Programme\Borland\Delphi5
 .

The bcc55 as well as the delphi distribution delivers the tool make. Call at commandline

> make -f Makefile.bcc all

to create the toolkit and the library, or

> make -f Makefile.bcc demo

to create the demo file.

This API will be a part of the DSpatial project. For more informations see http://dspatial.sourceforge.net/.
