Introduction

RUSSIAN

 
    KOL - Key Objects Library is a set of objects to develop power (but small) 32 bit Windows GUI applications using Delphi but without VCL. It is distributed free of charge, with source code.
   Delphi2, Delphi3, Delphi4Delphi5 and Delphi6 are supported now. KOL allows to create very compact Windows32 GUI applications (starting from ~13,5K without compression - if suggested system units replacement used). The most of code is converted to built-in assembler.
   A help generating tool xHelpGen is provided for KOL, which creates detailed documentation in html format. Documentation is generated on base of comments from the source, so developers instantly  have access to the most fresh and complete documentation.
   A package MCK (Mirror Classes Kit) provided with KOL, and all the advantages of visual programming are available for developers who use KOL.
