Line too long (more than 1023 characters)

Question:
When I try to compile, I suddenly get this error message:

Line too long (more than 1023 characters).

- but I cannot find any line to have more than 120 characters.

Answer:

Most likely you imported your source file from a CVS on a Unix machine, or you used an editor, that saves Unix style line separators. This will confuse Delphi. Homesite is a tool that will do this to you, I found.

Your line separators of #10s must be replaced by #13#10 as it is standard in DOS/ Windows.

In my case, I used Homesite to convert to Windows style documents.
