that brings up the question i was just wondering:

how is the back-translation from delphi to futurebasic?

the current version of my biggest program is spaghetti city,
so one of the next steps is to do a complete re-write, 
perhaps from scratch (albeit using the old program for "parts").

if i re-wrote it in the _process_ of porting it, it seems that i might
be saving myself some work by combining the re-write and the port.

and if i could then port the  rewritten delphi code back to f.b.
_easily_, that would sweeten the deal even more.

or would this approach simply 
compound my difficulty-factor?
