Has anybody developing the FPC compiler given FreeCLX any thought??
FreeCLX is the GPL'd portion of the CLX that comes with Kylix and will come
with Delphi 6.
As Kylix rocks, and is Delphi language compatible, can we assume that FPC will
compile and run against FreeCLX?? Is anyone thinking/working on this?? I figure
it should be pretty easy, appart from the slight dialectual differences between
FPC and Delphi/Kylix.
Take a look at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/freeclx/
Nothing to download yet, but afaik this will be the 'hub' for the FreeCLX.
I don't have the Linux version of FPC downloaded, otherwise I'd try it ;) (not
enough of a masochist to try porting to windows!!)
The LCL/FCL status seems to be slow,. and FreeCLX is already theoretically a
fully tested product - release quality.
Just thought that Lazarus could do with a kick up the arse (joke!! no flames
please!!) Having used Kylix for the last few months (yes beta) I can say it
currently kick Lazarus/fpc's collective Linux butt :P
