Free Pascal Compiler Version 3.0.2 **************************************************************************** * Introduction **************************************************************************** Please also read the platform specific README file, if it exists. This package contains an advanced freeware 32-bit/64-bit/16-bit pascal compiler for several platforms. The language and the runtime library are almost compatible with Turbo Pascal 7.0 and recent Delphi releases. There is also partial support for the Macintosh pascal dialect. News and changes related to this release are described in whatsnew.txt. Free Pascal 3.0.x is currently available for the following platforms: - Linux-i386 - Linux-x86_64 (amd64) - Linux-powerpc - Linux-sparc - Linux-ARM - Win32-i386 (2000/XP, WinNT or later) - Win64-x86_64 (XP or later) - Wince-ARM (cross compiled from win32-i386) - FreeBSD-i386 - FreeBSD-x86_64 - Mac OS X/Darwin for PowerPC (32 and 64 bit) - Mac OS X/Darwin for Intel (32 and 64 bit) - iOS (ARM and AArch64/ARM64) and iPhoneSimulator (32 and 64 bit) - OS/2-i386 (OS/2 Warp v3.0, 4.0, WarpServer for e-Business and eComStation) - Haiku-i386 - GO32v2-i386 - Nintendo Gameboy Advance-ARM (cross compile from win32-i386) - Nintendo DS-ARM (cross compile from win32-i386) - Nintendo Wii-powerpc (cross compile from win32-i386) - AIX 5.3 and later for PowerPC (32 and 64 bit) - Java JVM (1.5 and later) and Android Dalvik (Android 4.0 and later) - Android (ARM, i386, MIPS) via cross-compiling. - MSDos-i8086 (cross compiled from win32-i386 or Linux) - Amiga, MorphOS and AROS There are other platforms (like other BSD variants) which are more or less working, but there is currently no maintainer for them and thus we cannot provide adequate support. If you want to change this and create and maintain versions for other platforms and targets, feel free to contact us, e-mail addresses are listed below. **************************************************************************** * Features **************************************************************************** - high speed compiler - fully 16, 32 or 64-bit code - 32 bit compiler can be used on x86_64 Linux distributions to compile 32 bit applications - language features: - almost fully compatible with Borland Pascal and Borland Delphi - ansi strings - wide strings - exception support - RTTI support - procedure overloading - generics (experimental) - operator overloading - COM, CORBA and raw interfaces support - dynamic array support - variant support - inlining - code optimizer: - peephole optimizer (80x86 only) - jump optimizer - loading of variables into registers - assembler level dataflow analyzer (80x86 only) - stack frame eliminations - sophisticated register allocator - integrated BASM (built-in assembler) parser - supports ATT syntax used by GNU C - supports Intel syntax used by Turbo Pascal (x86-only) - can compile code into assembler source code for these assemblers: - GNU Assembler (GAS) - Netwide assembler (Nasm) - Microsoft Assembler/Turbo Assembler (Masm/Tasm) - Watcom assembler (wasm) - internal assembler for ultra fast object file generation - can call external C code - h2pas utility to convert .h files to Pascal units - smart linking (also known as dead code stripping) - support for the GNU debugger - integrated development environment (disabled by default on Mac OS X) - powerful user friendly Wordstar compatible multi file editor - context sensitive help supports help files in HTML, Windows HLP and Borland TPH format. - debugger on most platforms - can create binaries running natively under both DOS and OS/2 (EMX version) - no need for Linux distribution specific binaries, programs you write run on all distributions - high quality documentation **************************************************************************** * Minimum requirements **************************************************************************** Processor: i386, x86_64, PowerPC, ARM, MIPS, i8086, Motorola 68k, Sparc or JVM runtime Win32: - MS Windows NT/2000/XP or later (Win95, 98 and ME are not supported in FPC officially any longer). - 16 MB RAM OS/2: - OS/2 Warp v3.0 with one of late fixpaks - FP 35 should be fine, OS/2 Warp v4.0 with FP 5 and above, WSeB, MCP or any eComStation version (OS/2 2.0/2.1 currently not supported, not even for compiled programs). - Certain features (e.g. Unicode support in the RTL) require proper support only available in later OS/2 versions (at least OS/2 Warp 4.0 FP14), otherwise the functionality may be limited (but the binaries still work even on the older versions, albeit with some limitations). Linux: - system running a 2.4.x kernel FreeBSD: - There are separate releases for FreeBSD 7.x system or 8.x system. The code works on 6.x too. Older versions might need specific adaptations. Mac OS X: - Mac OS X 10.4 and higher **************************************************************************** * Quick start - Win32 **************************************************************************** Download the distribution package (fpc-3.0.2.i386-win32.exe) and run it - it is a self-extracting installer, so just follow the instructions to install it. The installer should set the PATH environment variable as appropriate. To test the compiler, change to the demo\texts directory of the FPC tree and type on the command line: fpc hello hello **************************************************************************** * Quick start - DOS **************************************************************************** Download distribution archive (dos300.zip for GO32v2) and unzip it into a temporary directory. Start the install program INSTALL.EXE and follow the instructions. Don't forget to set PATH as mentioned by the install program. If running under plain DOS, this can be done by opening file named AUTOEXEC.BAT located in the root directory of your boot drive (usually C:\) with a plain text editor (like EDIT.COM), extending the line starting with "set PATH=" (case insensitive) with path to newly installed binaries (installation root as selected in the installation program appended with "\BIN\GO32v2") and save it. To test the compiler, change to the demo\texts directory of the FPC tree and type fpc hello hello **************************************************************************** * Quick start - OS/2 / eComStation **************************************************************************** Download distribution archive (os2300.zip for OS/2 or eComStation) and unzip it into a temporary directory. Start the install program INSTALL.EXE and follow the instructions. Don't forget to set PATH and LIBPATH as mentioned by the install program. This can be done by opening file named CONFIG.SYS located in the root directory of your boot drive (e.g. C:\) with a plain text editor (e.g. E.EXE), extending the lines starting with "set PATH=" and "LIBPATH=" (both are case insensitive) with path to newly installed binaries (installation root as selected in the installation program appended with "\BIN\OS2" for PATH and "\DLL" for LIBPATH) and save it again as a plain text file. Note that changes to LIBPATH require restart of your machine in order to come into effect. To test the compiler, change to the demo\texts directory of the FPC tree and type fpc hello hello **************************************************************************** * Quick start - Linux/FreeBSD **************************************************************************** Download fpc-3.0.2.<cpu>-<os>.tar and untar into a temporary directory. Start the install script with ./install.sh and follow the instructions. To test the compiler, change to the demo/texts directory of the FPC tree and type fpc hello hello **************************************************************************** * Quick start - Mac OS X/Darwin **************************************************************************** The Xcode command line tools must be installed before FPC is installed. See the download page for more information (the method changes with almost every new Xcode and/or Mac OS X release, so the information in this readme is usually out of date). There are two methods to install Free Pascal for Mac OS X. 1) Download and install the Mac OS X installer package 2) Install fpc using fink This second method additionally includes a text mode IDE, which partly works using XQuartz xterm. After installing the package, you can write your source code in your favorite editor (including Project Builder and XCode). To compile something, go to the directory containing your source files in Terminal and type: fpc name_of_your_source_file The compiler only accepts one file name as argument, but will automatically search for and compile any units used by the specified source file. Run "fpc" without any arguments to get an overview of the possible command line options. **************************************************************************** * Documentation **************************************************************************** The documentation is available as HTML pages, PDF, PS, and text although the recommended format is pdf. The latest PDF version is available on ftp://ftp.freepascal.org/fpc/dist/docs-pdf/, other formats are available for download in the directory of the respective distributed release. NB that there is at present no FPC specific documentation for the platform specific API (like Win32 system functions, etc.). There is a note in the ftp /doc explaining where MS help file documenting Win32 API can be obtained, other platforms (especially Unix-based ones) often come with this documentation included in system installation. **************************************************************************** * Suggestions, Help, Bug reporting, snapshots, ... **************************************************************************** Suggestions, Help ... --------------------- e-mail: fpc-devel@lists.freepascal.org (bugs, developer related questions) e-mail: fpc-pascal@lists.freepascal.org (general pascal related questions) Both these adresses are for mailing lists. If you're not subscribed, be sure to mention this fact when sending questions to these lists, so that people sending answers know about it and send you a copy. Information about available lists and subscription can be found on http://lists.freepascal.org/mailman/listinfo Combined with Lazarus, an IDE for the Free Pascal Compiler: Web forum: http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org (all questions) Wiki: http://wiki.freepascal.org WWW: http://www.freepascal.org FTP: ftp://ftp.freepascal.org/fpc (several mirrors exist, see website for links) Additional information about mailing lists, news, future plans etc. can be found on the web site. SNAPSHOTS & SOURCES ------------------- One of the features of FPC is the snapshots. These are made daily or weekly from the developers' latest versions of the source. Snapshots are available for GO32v2, Win32, OS/2 and Linux versions. The latest snapshots are in: ftp://ftp.freepascal.org/fpc/snapshot/ in appropriately named .zip/tar files. You will also normally find in the snapshot archive file a readme, with a note about the latest included changes. It is quite common, though it doesn't always happen, that when a bug is reported it is fixed and a fixed version can be obtained the NEXT day in the appropriate snapshot.... yes really! Also on the ftp site you'll find a /dist directory, with the latest distributed releases, a /docs directory, and a /snapshot/<version>/source directory, in which every night at about 0100 GMT the latest source generated by the developers during the day & evening before is exported from SVN into ZIP file fpc.zip. Making your own snapshots ------------------------- By downloading the /source files (makefiles are included) it is possible to make your own version of the fpc compiler/rtl and to modify it. You are of course free to do this so as long as you observe the licence conditions. In order to make the compiler/rtl & IDE in a resonable time (eg <30 minutes) you'll need at least 32 MB of physical memory (64 MB is better), at least a 200 MHz processor and at least 100 MB of free disk space. You'll also need some knowledge of makefiles & programming... it is not difficult but it isn't easy either! REPORTING BUGS ---------------- If you find a bug in the released version, you may want to try a snapshot (see SNAPSHOTS above) to see if it has been fixed before reporting it to the fpc-devel mailing list. If you find a fault or 'feature' in a release, please report it either using the bug reporting interface at http://bugs.freepascal.org, or to the fpc-devel mailing list. PLEASE ALWAYS INCLUDE A COMPILABLE CODE FRAGMENT that can be used to reproduce the problem (or a link to larger archive if it cannot be reproduced with small example). Also state the FPC version, target platform (Win32, Linux, ...), operating system version (XP, Ubuntu 12.04, ...), the used compiler options and any other useful info so the developers can reproduce the problem. Otherwise they may not be able to fix it. **************************************************************************** * License **************************************************************************** The compiler and most utilities and executables distributed in this package fall under the GPL, for more information read the file COPYING.v2.
