One of those shortcuts involves using just a Boolean variable's name to test for True. Look at this code: if FileGood then ReadData; This method is shortcut for the longer form, which is illustrated with this line: if FileGood = True then ReadData; This shortcut only applies to Boolean variables. You can test for False by applying the not keyword to a variable name: var FileGood : Boolean; begin FileGood := OpenSomeFile; if not FileGood then ReportError; end; Learning the Object Pascal shortcuts helps you write code that contains a degree of elegance.
It would be convenient to use a single data variable to hold all the fields needed in a typical mailing list. A record enables you to do that. You first declare the record and then later create an instance of that record when you want to use the record.
