When you build a Object Pascal package, Appmethod generates a Object Pascal compiled package file. Projects that use your package need to access your Object Pascal compiled package file at build time.

A Object Pascal compiled package file is a binary image containing a package header and the concatenation of all Object Pascal compiled unit files in your package, including all symbol information required by the compiler and linker.

When you build your Object Pascal package, your Object Pascal compiled package file is generated by default as <package>.dcp into the following folder:

  • For 32-bit Windows: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\17.0\DCP
  • For other platforms: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\17.0\DCP\<platform>

To change the output directory, use the DCP output directory option in Project > Options > Object Pascal Compiler.
