Fastest way to plot a

SD/TN>What is the fastest way to plot pixels in Delphi?

SD/TN>What i want to do is update an area (for example 256x256 pixels wide)
SD/TN>pixel for pixel. I tried using .pixel(x,y) but it was to slow.

Why not use the API call SetPixel? That is as fast as it can get under
Windows, unless you use other special game/direct draws.

SD/TN>Or do i have to make a .DLL/.VBX in C to update this area??
SD/TN>if i want to have some speed??

How would 'C' be any different? You would use the same API calls as with
Delphi, and using a DLL would add even more overhead and decrease speed.
If you want to squeeze those few clock cycles, use assembler instead, if
you have the talent.
