Finally, the moment has come:


Following up on a bounty offered, Dmitry Boyarintsev has accomplished milestone one 
in the implementation of FPC's webassembly backend.

And: It's alive ! :-)

The first result can be seen here:


Conway's game of life written using FPC:

- FPC itself for the WebAssembly Backend library.
- pas2js for the necessary Javascript front end and GUI code.

Although I can't imagine why you would want to, you can also load the
webassembly from plain Javascript:


Whoever thought Pascal is dead, should now think otherwise.
It's very much alive !



PS. More info about the webassembly efforts will be assembled here:
It's a bit cursory at the moment, but will be improved as things evolve -
once it's alive, it tries to stay alive ;)
