While searching the web for the answer to a somewhat common question:
Is it possible to link C++ libraries to Free Pascal programs?
I came across a reply on this mailing list. The answer is no, and it
won't probably be possible any time soon. The suggestion I read there was
fairly simple. Rewrite the library in Free Pascal. While I don't
particularly want to do that, it did make me wonder about something else:
Is it possible to link Free Pascal to C++?
A little more specifically, is it possible to use object-oriented pascal
code in a C++ program?
If I could rewrite my library in pascal and then link it to a C++ program,
it wouldn't be so bad. I would have to rewrite it all, yes - but I
wouldn't have to maintain two nearly identical libraries.
