Yikes!

For a while now, I've been wanting to be able to recompile Yikes under Borland C++ Builder 6. Yesterday I discovered that TurboPower had made all of their components open source.

So I downloaded them and tried to install them. and they wouldn't compile.

It turned out to be because someone had put a huge comment at the start of the project file which was causing an error. Once I took the comment out, it worked fine.

So I went to compile Yikes. Naturally it didn't work because Borland had changed a bunch of things, but eventually I got it working. Other than the Open/Save dialog boxes, but I'm thinking of redoing those anyway.
