Installing BDE using Merge Modules
by Wes Peterson
The new and "approved" way to install the BDE is by way of mege modules. This is quite a bit different than the traditional ways of using a pre-made program, or incorporating BDE Cab files (from, say, your Delphi installation). Caveat: This is new news for me, and I don't claim to know or understand everything there is to know on this topic but I do have some helpful findings for you.

 Monthly Coder Lesson
General Coding Concepts Topic:
Definition of the Month: Programming Literals

A value directly written into the source code of a computer program (as opposed to an identifier like a variable or constant). Literals cannot be changed. Common types of literals include string literals, floating point literals, integer literals, and hexidemal literals. Literal strings are usually either quoted (") or use an apostrophe (') which is often referred to as a single quote. Sometimes quotes are inaccurately referred to as double quotes.
