Free Pascal - SDK suite dependency package
  13 reviews

The Free Pascal Compiler is an Object Pascal compiler supporting both Delphi and Turbo Pascal 7.0 dialects, as well as Mac Pascal dialects. It provides a completely portable RunTime Library (RTL) available on many platforms and compatible with Turbo Pascal, along with a platform-independent class-based Free Component Library (FCL) adding many Delphi extensions and interfacing with many popular open source libraries.

Extensions have been added to the language, such as function overloading, creation and linking of shared libraries, and Delphi language extensions including classes, exceptions, ANSI strings, and open arrays.

This dependency package always depends on the latest available version of the metapackage pulling in all the FPC packages provided for this architecture. Experienced users may instead prefer to install the particular packages they require by hand.

Best compiler

Really a nice compiler. Pascal hopefully will to come back to existence with FPC and Lazarus.

Excellent Replacement for Turbo-Pascal (the real standard) so FPC may possibly be THE new standard. YET... you may want to have it updated from http://www.lazarus-ide.org/ ... As for a long time last version is 2.6.4, with major new version 3.0 to be launched soon.

Pascal -- it's make reader laugh but I must use it in school and FreePascal is the best in the Pascal compiller. IDE is look like original TurboPascal but is better and have better performance.

I've been using Pascal since 1987 and FPC is essential in today's environments.

I'm coding my little helpers in Pascal since ages. Coming from DOS/Win16 I began with TurboPascal and switched years ago to FPC. Porting was easy and sometimes not even necessary to compile a 32bit exe. Porting sources to Linux may be more tricky. Compilations are fast and stable. I love FPC

My favorit Pascal compiler, it contains bindings and wrappers for the most popular C libaries on linxu and even adds some own stuf. Great compiler.
