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.

Re: smartlinking

Specify -CX to make the compile generate smartlinkable units and also -XS to let the compiler smartlink against those units. Do not use the -g which generates debugging information. There are equivalent options in the IDE, but you'll have to see yourself, I haven't it available to me at the moment.
