A client wants some reporting stuff automation.
The problem... The reporting tool of their ERP system is over 15 years old WTF | :WTF:
The supplier has since switched to a new format and I had to get a report viewer from... Somewhere Laugh | :laugh:
It's not really a problem for me though, the whole report is XML which is decent enough (as decent as XML gets anyway).
The real problem is within the report content... Pascal Script! OMG | :OMG:
Actually printing a report is going to be nice, their SDK for this version is only available in... Delphi Laugh | :laugh:
Someone else is doing the Delphi, luckily Dead | X|

I didn't think I was old enough to ever witness Pascal, even if it's just its unholy script spawn.
Pascal Script looks a lot like PL/SQL and thus burns mine eyes!

I've already ordered a set of dark robes to perform my (now) nightly programming rituals.
A question for the initiated, do I need a cauldron? Big Grin | :-D
