    Can't wait to try it out

    Found this one, it's a good beginning:

    The current state of my vkxml2pas translator tool including output vulkan.pas:

    It's so far complete, except the Vulkan library loading part, where I'm working still on it in a vk.xml future-proof compliant way, due to the extensions and so on.

    Edit: Now it generates real enums.

    My vkxml2pas-generated header has the followed load interface now:

    function LoadVulkanLibrary(const LibraryName:string=VK_DEFAULT_LIB_NAME):boolean;
    function LoadVulkanGlobalCommands:boolean;
    function LoadVulkanInstanceCommands(const GetInstanceProcAddr:TvkGetInstanceProcAddr;const Instance:TVkInstance;out InstanceCommands:TVulkanCommands):boolean;
    function LoadVulkanDeviceCommands(const GetDeviceProcAddr:TvkGetDeviceProcAddr;const Device:TVkDevice;out DeviceCommands:TVulkanCommands):boolean;
    where LoadVulkanLibrary loads only vkGetInstanceProcAddr, and LoadVulkanGlobalCommands loads then the remaining functions with help of vkGetInstanceProcAddr(nil,*) (what the Vulkan spec recommend it also), and what LoadVulkanInstanceCommands and LoadVulkanDeviceCommands does, should be clear, when you've read the Vulkan specs.

    And now. i must buy a Vulkan-ready Android device zu legen, i.e. at best the NVidia Shield TV (which've already a Vulkan-ready Stock AndroidTV ROM), so that I can make the vkxml2pas-generated Vulkan header also Android/armv7a ready and so that I can test it also.

    And a TVulkan class does exist now also, which do also the for-Android/armv7a-target-needed calling-convention-proxying stuff then, because the specs says:

    On Android/ARMv7a, Vulkan functions use the armeabi-v7a-hard calling convention, even if the application's native code is compiled with the armeabi-v7a calling convention.
    And a default-global TVulkan instance with the name vk does exist now also, so that you can use for example instead vkCreateInstance also vk.CreateInstance (with automatic calling-convention-proxing then).

    Very good job!
    It turned out that my GTX 850M supports Vulkan after all, so I'll be able to try it out soon.
