Lazarus 1.0.2

Post#1 by RamonTavarez » 01 Mar 2013, 15:30

For the enthusiasts of the programming language PASCAL, her is the compiler Lazarus in it's version 1.0.2
Lazarus is the class libraries for Free Pascal that emulate Delphi. Free Pascal is a GPL'ed compiler that runs on Linux, Win32, OS/2, 68K and more. Free Pascal is designed to be able to understand and compile Delphi syntax, which is of course OOP. Lazarus is the part of the missing puzzle that will allow you to develop Delphi like programs in all of the above platforms. Lazarus and Free Pascal strives for write once compile anywhere. Since the exact same compiler is available on all of the above platforms it means you don't need to do any recoding to produce identical products for different platforms.
Lazarus is being developed to be totally and completely API independent. Once you write your code you just link it against the API widget set of your choice. As long as the interface code for the widget set you want to use is available you can link to it. If it isn't available, well you can write it.
At this point in the development developers are using Win32, gtk+, Carbon and QT as their API widget set. As soon as Lazarus reaches a 1.0 release programmers will be able to start to create the interface unit to tie the LCL (Lazarus Component Libraries) to other widget sets.
The code for the Free Pascal compiler is licensed under the GPL. This means that it is open source, free, whatever name you want to stick to it. You can modify the code if you wish but you MUST distribute those changes or make them available to others if they wish to use it.
The FCL (Free Pascal Component Libraries) and the LCL (which will eventually become part of the FCL) are licensed under a modified LGPL. In a nut shell this means that you can write your own proprietary software that just links to these libraries. You can sell your application without the need to supply or make available your code. However, as with the compiler if you make modifications to the FCL or LCL you must make those changes available to the general public and the world.

Is Pascal a programming langage still in use today?( I took some Pacal courses some 25 years ago). :)

By the way, nice country that you have there called Dominican Republic. :D

Hi:

Yes, Pascal still works.

This compiler (FP 2.6.0) works with an IDE (Lazarus 1.0.2), and both of them have a development team that update them.

There are compiler for Windows, MacOS, Linux (DEB and RPM distros), for 32 and 64 bit environment.

The source is available on http://www.lazarus.freepascal.org.

As you, I've coded on PASCAL (a long time ago), I still like it.

This is another tool that can be available for programmers, and I think that can open possibilities for them on Porteus.

Where can I get the compilet and FPC sources? I might get back to it, as Pascal was recognized as a good language to learn programming.

In fact, I would have tried it right away. :)

@Francois

Hi.

Excuse me if I´m aswering tooo late (busy days).

The site http://www.freepascal.org leads you to the compiler for diferents Os and to the source code too.

The site http://www.lazarus.freepascal.org leads you to the OOP IDE for FreePascal.

Greetings
