Brief description
   Delphi2 - Delphi7, Borland Developer Studio 2005-2012, Turbo-Delphi, Kylix and Free Pascal Compiler 1.0.5 and higher are supported now. KOL allows to create very compact Windows32 GUI applications (starting from ~11K 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 Delphi developers who use KOL (MCK supports Delphi versions supported from 2 to 7).
Important information
