Embarcadero Delphi is an integrated development environment for console, desktop graphical, web, and mobile applications.
Delphi's compilers use their own Object Pascal dialect of Pascal and generate native code for 32- and 64-bit Windows operating systems, as well as 32-bit Mac OS X and iOS. (iOS code generation is done with the Free Pascal compiler.) As of late 2011 support for the Linux and Android operating system was planned by Embarcadero.
To create applications for managed code platforms, a similar (but not mutually compatible) alternative is Delphi Prism.
Delphi was originally developed by Borland as a rapid application development tool for Windows, and as the successor of Borland Pascal. Delphi and its C++ counterpart, C++Builder, shared many core components, notably the IDE and VCL, but remained separate until the release of RAD Studio 2007. RAD Studio is a shared host for Delphi, C++Builder, and others.
In 2006, Borland’s developer tools section were transferred to a wholly owned subsidiary known as CodeGear, which was sold to Embarcadero Technologies in 2008.

Famous quotes containing the word delphi:
“At Delphi I prayed
that he maintain in me
the flame of the poem
and I drank of the brackish
