Title: Welcome to the support forum of Free Pascal for Amiga(OS)/AROS/MorphOS

Welcome,

Here you can find support for Free Pascal for Amiga(OS)/AROS/MorphOS (*).

For those that do not know you can use the Free Pascal compiler on all 4 forementioned platforms (although you are probably better off using cross-compiling when targeting classic AmigaOS  unless you have a pretty beefed up configuration). As a bonus when cross-developing, the Lazarus IDE offers support for (cross)compiling for the mentioned platforms (albeit the LCL-implementation is not in a ready state).

Current state:
The official 3.2 version release of the compiler is currently in progress (meaning that if you now spot a bug that this can be fixed before the official 3.2 release, otherwise it would have to wait for the next scheduled release).


Be sure to check out the Free Pascal for Amiga(OS)/AROS/MorphOS wiki (https://fpcamigawiki.alb42.de/) and also take a peek at ALB42's blog (https://blog.alb42.de/)

The Free Pascal compiler itself can be (cross-)compiled from the official Free Pascal Sources (requires a decent setup using), is distributed by (latest) Icaros Desktop (development package) and nightly build binaries are available (http://build.alb42.de/fpcreleases/) from ALB42's buildbot.

A special thanks to the AROS development team for their support, ALB42 and Chain-Q for the current port, and not the least Volker Barthelmann for his excellent vbcc compiler suite and Frank Wille for his work with regards to that suite (the latter really makes (cross-)compiling with Free Pascal a breeze).

Have fun !

(*)  You can of course also find support in the official Free Pascal forums (http://www.lazarus-ide.org/) as well but it's just a bit more relax overhere, especially when your questions/issues are specific to the Amiganoid platforms.

edit: i've moved the replies into a separate thread and locked this topic as reservation for future informations.
