Subject description: fpc free Pascal IDE - GTK based - cross-platform - Pascal rulez! C# socks
 

Some may remember the good old days of Turbo Pascal and Delphi.

On Puppy (I checked with Quirky on a F2FS filesystem) Lazarus installs fully automatic the latest release. Laughing

just run the fpcup_linux_x86 binary from

https://bitbucket.org/reiniero/fpcup/downloads

the binary gives no feedback for 10 minutes, just read the
logfile from /root/fpcup.log

you'll be amazed when it runs !

find all info on:
http://wiki.freepascal.org/fpcup

with Pascal you have a GTK RAD with amazing capabilities.

Everything works, except the GDB needs to be exchanged for a suitable version. fantastic stuff !

PS: the .rpm & .deb packs are totally broken, FPCup is the only working installer. Rolling Eyes

I just want to say again.

The binary appears to do nothing after you click it, but it is running.

Being impatient I started at least two copies of this running the first time I tried it!! I expected some box to pop up or something to happen. Smile

I have installed it in Slacko 5.7 frugal

A few problems found with first program, however it does compile and run a form with a button in it, but as soon as I try to attach an event to it...
1) missing button event when I click on Onclick reports controls.pp missing
2) Something kills the desktop and I have to start the graphical server again. more investigation needed

Just about finished my first application and it seems to be working well. Compiles and runs in Slacko 5.7 just fine.

I had a problem when installing the SQLite3 dataset package. The package itself installed OK but when it came to re-compiling the IDE which you have to do as part of the install of the package, the compile of the IDE failed.

I think this may have been because I initially tried various methods and places to install the Free Pascal compiler and Lazarus IDE and libraries so I decided to clean up and reinstall the whole thing using fpcup again.

The fcpup installer appears to use the HOME environment variable to determine where to place the /development directory. I wanted everything placed on my /mnt/sda5 partition so I changed my HOME environment variable to /mnt/sda5 and run the fpcup installer from there in the terminal screen as # ./fpcup_linux_x86 after making it executable.

From the logfile, fpcup appears to have finished successfully.
