I have resumed my work on this target after finding that an annoying
problem with string constants was fixed (i don't know what was exactly
the problem, so kudos goes to one or more contributors from the previous
year). Since then, WriteLn and memory allocation was implemented and
should work as expected.
Maybe it is time to create a branch. I suppose the branch should be
created by a core developer and some rights given to me so i can commit
to this new branch. Am i right ?
I have updated the UEFI page on the freepascal wiki with my current
patch : http://wiki.freepascal.org/UEFI. Most of the remaining work
should be to implement features using the UEFI API as a backend (such as
file access support).
