Debugging with MAP file

"I have created a small test project only for debug purposes that triggers a Access Violation error. From this error I would like to use the instruction address provided by the application error and the corresponding MAP file for the application to find the source code line generating the error... From the MAP file and AV instruction address how can I find the line number responsible for the error and maybe the name of the variable not initilized???"

From the Page Editor: A Beginner's Guide To Delphi

This is a good guide to someone who is just beginning to learn Delphi programming. It takes you through the fundamentals, including the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and the Object Pascal language, and uses some practical examples to help you learn.

Featured Experts

If you don't post in the Delphi TA, you might not ever see rllibby; he doesn't venture into vary many other topic areas. But he's well-known and respected for his work and collaborative skills.

Certificates: Wizard, Delphi Programming


Workshop_Alex has been around for a while; he started programming in Pascal in 1984, and gravitated to Delphi when it was released ten years later. According to his profile, he loves his job, but he's always open to suggestion. But be prepared; the electricity bill for his computers has to be pretty significant.

Certificates: Guru, Delphi Programming


The Page Editor for Delphi has been around EE for some time, and has more tenure than most of EE's active Experts. He was introduced to the IT world by an ex-girlfriend ("she could operate computers, and I was impressed"), so he started studying at night, then got a job running a network and started programming. He now works for a large distribution company, working mostly in Oracle, but still considers Delphi/Pascal his favorite coding language.

Tip from the Page Editors: Use the search engine at Experts Exchange. There aren't very many questions that haven't been asked before, in a lot of cases, so it's quite possible that the answer you're looking for is already there. It's not a bad idea for Experts either; if you sign your posts a particular way, you can type in your "signature" and a few keywords and find a question you answered some time ago without looking through your entire profile.
One of the least-known new features at Experts Exchange is our new Link Exchange. Our Link Exchange program is beneficial to both sites in a couple ways:
  1. The number of resources available to users on both sites will increase
  2. Site relevance is increased within all major search engines when a site provides links to and from quality resources
If you would like to swap links with EE, just fill out the form at the Link Exchange page.
Nata's Corner: A nasty new virus

woman in specticals One of the other newsletters I get reported last week that a nasty new virus, originally thought to be a variant of the MyDoom virus, has hit computers. Called Bofra, there are at least two variants -- one has what looks like a link to one of "those" sites, but it's the second that should worry people. The Bofra-B version looks like an email confirming payment from you to someone using PayPal. While the email doesn't look anything like anything I've ever gotten from PayPal -- the yellow background and red lettering looks pretty phony -- it's only a matter of time.

Sophos also announced that it has discovered the Banker-AJ trojan residing on computers used by a number of banks in Britain. eBay and Amazon have also been recent targets.

Speaking of viruses and worms and stuff, the first significant Internet worm made its debut sixteen years ago last week. The Morris worm -- a research project that was designed to be self-replicating -- overloaded thousands of Unix-based VAX and Sun Microsystems systems. At the time, the Internet was mostly universities and the military, but once the can of -- well, worms -- was opened, it's never been closed.

Lavasoft, the company that makes the popular Ad-Aware software, has announced that it isn't going to support version 6 any longer, and has urged users to upgrade to the SE version. It's still free for personal users.

Tip for New Members: What's going on at EE?

We try to keep you up to date on the new things happening at Experts Exchange, but there are two places you can check for announcements about new releases, new Moderators, and information of some importance.

First, it's a good idea to take a look at the Community News for official announcements on site happenings. The other way is to keep an eye on the Community Support topic area. The Mods and Admins will frequently post updates on planned server downtimes and other events or appointments.
