What is OmniThreadLibrary?

OmniThreadLibrary is a simple to use threading library for Delphi. OTL's main "selling" points (besides the prices, of course ;) are power, simplicity, and openess. With just few lines of code, you can set up multiple threads, send messages between them, process Windows messages and more. OTL doesn't limit you in any way - if it is not powerfull enough for you, you can ignore any part of its "smartness" and replace it with your own code.

How do I get OmniThreadLibrary?

OTL is hosted on the Google Code. [See the Download page for more information.]

How do I use OmniThreadLibrary?

Is OmniThreadLibrary supported on my platform?

At the moment, OTL supports Delphi 2007, 2009, 2010, XE, XE2 and XE3 on Win32 and Win64 platforms using the VCL framework. There are no plans to support older Delphi compilers and .NET. OS X will probably supported at some time, but there are no specific plans for it yet.

Your web design sucks!

I fully agree. See How can I contribute below.

How can I contribute?

OmniThreadLibrary saved my company/marriage/life of my loved ones. How can I repay you?

You can buy me a book. I have extensive wish lists on both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. I would especially appreciate used books as I can't buy them in Slovenia. Stupid Amazon people still cannot deliver used books here :( A good alternative is to send me an Amazon Gift Certificate (for Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk, I don't mind).

You can also contact me if you have a tough Delphi problem that needs to be solved. I'm not doing databases or printing, everything else is negotiable.

Who is Primoz Gabrijelcic, anyway?

I'm a long-time Delphi programmer, writer for TDM, Monitor, and Blaise Pascal magazines and frequent contributor to the Delphi-SI community. Since 2008 I'm part of the Delphi Mentor Team. I'm also the sole author of the The Delphi Geek blog. As you can clearly see from my book lists (see the previous topic), I like reading SF and working with wood.
