What I hope to do is instead of asking the question like that is to ask it
in a way that gives the choice between two modes, which are:
1) Pure consumer of the components with no interest in tracing or debugging
or changing the sources.
2) Co-developer of the components with interest in tracing, debugging and
potentially altering the sources.
I'll see what I can do to make changes to the installer so that I don't have
to separately make the Raw sources a separate download from the installer.
I also think in both cases above that I should compile and install the
sources into the IDE.
The hang-up for now is I am using the installer for my eval version so even
the one with full source is based on a model that does not release certain
critical source units even though it makes them available for compilation in
a protected space. This is how I can distribute IBO for all the versions of
Delphi 3,4,5,6,7,2005 & 2006 and C++ Builder 4,5 & 6 in a single file that
is under 3MB. Only the source is in the file and the rest is command-line
scripting using the Delphi compiler to generate the necessary files.
Thanks for your feedback and for pressing on me a bit to "get it".
