## to Gigasecond in the Delphi Pascal Track

Published at Jan 12 2021 · 0 comments
Instructions
Test suite
Solution

Given a moment, determine the moment that would be after a gigasecond has passed.

A gigasecond is 10^9 (1,000,000,000) seconds.

## Testing

In order to run the tests for this track, you will need to install DUnitX. Please see the installation instructions for more information.

If Delphi is properly installed, and *.dpr file types have been associated with Delphi, then double clicking the supplied *.dpr file will start Delphi and load the exercise/project. control + F9 is the keyboard shortcut to compile the project or pressing F9 will compile and run the project.

Alternatively you may opt to start Delphi and load your project via. the File drop down menu.

### When Questions Come Up

We monitor the Pascal-Delphi support room on gitter.im to help you with any questions that might arise.

### Submitting Exercises

Note that, when trying to submit an exercise, make sure the exercise file you're submitting is in the exercism/delphi/<exerciseName> directory.

For example, if you're submitting ubob.pas for the Bob exercise, the submit command would be something like exercism submit <path_to_exercism_dir>/delphi/bob/ubob.pas.
