I looked at it again some 3-4 years ago, I have issues with its 
internal/structural design: It uses indexed access in a very inelegant 
way that makes it also slow. I did try to refactor it to use 
trees/linklists internally, but I ran out of patience/stamina. As a 
result of all that, I won't touch JCF again. Sorry.

This is interesting.

I didn't know that. Thank you for pointing it out?

Have you used it --i.e. is it any good?

Do you know whether it uses JCF or something else as the parser?

BTW, I've got Lazarus v1.0.12 here and I don't see anything in any 
popups that sound anything like 'remove with'; could you be a little 
more descriptive on the steps to wake up that beeast.
