What is source code?
Source code is made up of human readable programming commands to perform a given task. In this case, the source code is the human readable program commands that make up The Recipe Processor. The computer cannot understand source code, so a computer program called a compiler is used to convert the human readable commands to an executable file that the computer can understand and run. Having the source code allows you to modify the program, add features, and gain an understanding of how the program operates. Of course, you must be a proficient programmer to modify the source code. Wouldn't it be nice to have the source code for Microsoft Word or Excel? Source code for commercial applications is hardly ever made available to the public. The Recipe Processor source code is now available for anyone who is interested in tinkering with it. This package contains all of the Pascal source files needed to compile the program. You will need Borland's Turbo Pascal compiler version 5.5. If you have any other version of the Turbo Pascal Compiler, you may have to modify the code to make it compile. If you do not have a compiler, but wish to view the source code, you can use NOTEPAD to view the source files. While this is a DOS program, it will run on Windows 95, 98, ME, XP, and 2000 in a DOS window. If you are using Windows Vista, you will need to install and run Microsoft's Virtual PC with one of the above operating systems. The Turbo Pascal compiler version 5.5 can be downloaded from the following page. The Recipe Processor is in no way associated with this page or the download. http://dn.codegear.com/article/20803 There is absolutely NO SUPPORT for the source code. It is sold as is.
