|Description:||Free Pascal (aka FPK Pascal) compiler (2.6.4-2)|
Free Pascal (aka FPK Pascal) is a 32 and 64 bit professional Pascal compiler. Supported processors: Intel x86, Amd64/x86 64, PowerPC, Sparc, Arm, Mips. Supported operating systems: Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X/Darwin, DOS, Win32, Win64, Wince. The language syntax has excellent compatibility with TP 7.0 as well as with most versions of Delphi (classes, rtti, exceptions, ansistrings, widestrings, interfaces). A Mac Pascal compatibility mode is also provided to assist users of previous Pascal compilers for the Mac. Furthermore, Free Pascal supports function overloading, operator overloading, global properties and other modern features. http://wiki.freepascal.org/User_Changes_2.6.4 also lists changes in fpc.
The FreePascal compiler produces PowerPC, x86, x86_64 and arm executables, which run natively on the respective platforms. PowerPC executables also run in Rosetta emulation on x86 Macs. Use lipo to combine different binaries to universal binaries. Get help with: fpc -h Compile and link a Pascal file with: fpc FILENAME For setting up the Free Pascal IDE see: http://www.freepascal.org/wiki/index.php/Textmode_IDE For using Free Pascal with Xcode see: http://www.freepascal.org/xcode.html After uncommenting a line in fpc.info "fink --test rebuild fpc" executes the test suite of the compiler. This takes quite some time, in particular on slow machines. Expect a small number of failed tests. For more documentation about Free Pascal in HTML and pdf, install fpc-doc.
