General Development Recently, Free Pascal (FPC) version 2.2.0 was released. This open source Pascal compiler has - since its initial release in 1993 - grown to be one of the most sophisticated open source compilers available today. Daily, more programmers discover FPC and develop their applications in Object Pascal. Specifically, the development of Lazarus has contributed to this phenomenon: Lazarus is a graphical open source IDE for FPC, with an extensive tool kit to design graphical (GUI) applications.

There is a layout engine as memson describes in the VCL (and LCL) If you don't know that, you obviously never seriously worked with it.

I wrote a commercial application in Delphi which is still being sold today, so you cannot really accuse me of not having "seriously" worked with it. None of the 3 Delphi books that I have, have ever mentioned the use of anchors.
