[fpc-pascal]RE: FreePascal installation for OS2 / accessing PostgreSQL database

Hallo Arne,

thank you for your answer.

Yes I've tested also VPascal.
Usually I use the Sibyl compiler, which is quite similar to Delphi.

My original intention to test VPascal and FreePascal is, that I try to
get a client interface to PostgreSQL working under OS2 using the written
Pascal units. But I've bad luck. Something is (or I'm doing) wrong. EMX,
the Postgres-DLL (PQ.DLL) and my unit (imports PQ.DLL functions) does
not work together somehow.

Also delivered sample units for FreePascal and VPascal I do not get
running. Somewhere a file "c.a" is requested, I do not have. Using the
other compiler (and sample) I get the result "Connection terminated by
SIGSEV" (from EMX).

All I know is, PostgreSql installation is correct, because the delivered
PSQL.EXE does work.

I'm nearly at the end of my ideas.

Any comments are welcome.

Best Regards and Thanks.

P.S.: Please answer to schischi at bigfoot.de too, I'm not a member of the
list yet.
