Portable Status

Hello.
I am glad to see you are still around.
Is there anything new with Portable for 2018 or 2019?

Is C or C++ still the output generated by Portable?

Since PortablE is a transpiler the answer to that question would be a yes.

Yes & no:

The main PortablE executable generates C++ or AmigaE(!) code.  C++ is the default, which is mainly pure C but with C++ used for exceptions & OOP.

However, most users will use the PEGCC executable instead, which generates an executable that you can run.  It's named PEGCC because it calls PortablE followed by GCC.

If you use the Annotate editor, then you get syntax highlighting, and I did release something which allows compiling & running programs from within Annotate.

P.S.  Nothing new for PortablE in 2018 as I have been far too busy with real life & more recently health issues.

Thanks to both of you.
I am sorry to hear about your health. I pray that the Creator will give you better health.

I have an A1000. Is the Amiga E requirements too high for an un-expanded A1000?
Thanks.

AmigaE requires Kickstart 2.

I appreciate it.
I am still waiting on parts to upgrade my A1000 roms.
The two boards I have support one and two roms each.
Waiting for parts from China and payday to arrive.
Next, I hope to have a Terrible Fire 530.
Ram, Rom, and FDD is the big thing for the A1000.
