[fpc-devel] Freepascal in microcontrollers

IMHO, nowadays, 8 (and 16) bit processors only make sense for very small 
projects. Those are very hardware specific and thus using C here does 
make sense.

OTOH, 32 bit processors have become very cheap and handy. For embedded 
projects, IMHO, especially processors that are programmed as "ip-Cores" 
in FPGAs are very interesting, so that porting the FP compiler could 
make sense. I am considering to do this port for the NIOS CPU (that runs 
in Altera FPGAs). I don't intend to start that project very soon, but if 
someone is interested in starting the port, I of course will try to help.
