I asked this I believe on fpk-develop, with no response, perhaps because
it was an inappropriate forum?  I will try again here.

I am developing (in Pure Pascal) a library to Access  common TCP/IP stack
(called STiK) on Atari computers.  When free Pascal becomes more usable on
the Atari, I will see that it is compilable under that as well.  What I am
more interested in for now, though is that I can write an app using this
TCP Library unit, and compile it also on FPK/Linux.  I have nearly
completed a low level interface by porting the C bindings for the stack.
I ambuilding a pascal friendly version on top of that, and next plan an
OOP layer.  It would be nice if I could make the second two of
thoseunitsto be compatible with some official or defacto standard TCPIP
unit included with FPK, so my programs could be compiled out-of-box under
both PPC/ATARI and FPK/linux.  One example of a program I am developing
with these libs is an AIM client.  While Atari is more in need of this
than Linux, it would be nice if I could also compile these programs under
linux.  In looking though, I didn't see any TCP unit coming with FPK,
perhaps I missed it.  There are a myriad of units available, so I have no
idea which ones are actually used by a significant number of developers.
I considered using the Delphi componant, but that would be difficult,
since this is a non-GUI oop layer, and I don't think it will use

On an off-note, does anybody know if there is a Sparc code-generator in
the works?It sucks that I can't use FPK on these Sun boxes ;<
