General Development After five years of development, Free Pascal 2.0 is ready. With the new compiler, its authors believe they are ready to become a larger open source development platform. In the MS-DOS world, Pascal was one of the major programming languages and is by means of Borland Delphi an important programming language in the Windows world. In the open source world, Free Pascal is the leading Pascal compiler and while open source is a bit biased using the C language, the Pascal language has a lot to offer to open source programmers.

FreePascal + OS/2 IDE
by JY on Tue 17th May 2005 13:15 UTC

Since this is a site for OS fans: There is a project over at http://sibyl.netlabs.org/ that aims to create a visual development IDE (including visual form buidler) to sit on top of FreePascal for OS/2. Progress is very slow (3 news items in almost 3 years!!!), but that's probably because it's a one or two man project I guess. If it ever gets finished, I'll probably resurrect my copy of eComStation and port some programs over that I wrote a while back... Could be fun ;)
