    I noticed the presence of Borland Memory Management Engine (BorlndMM.dll) in Take Command 14.

    After some investigation, it seems to be required by the new TPIPE command, that uses textpipeengine.dll. This means that TPIPE implementation requires about 6 Meg of disk, which is almost twice the size of V.

    I am wondering why Delphi was choosen to implement TPIPE, while Take Command itself and V is created on C++.

    Textpipeengine.dll is a third-party product.

    Are there features in Borland Memory Management Engine (BorlndMM.dll) that could be made available in a future version?

    I can't imagine there would be. And since it would require spending a year or two rewriting Take Command in Delphi, I doubt I'll ever find out.

    Is there something you feel is missing?

    I have no idea what that means ... and how would that be related to memory management?

    Not at all - I have not checked out what the Borland DLL does, I was just wondering whether or not it has anything useful besides what tpipe uses it.
