Version 1.0.10 of FPC has been released and uploaded to SourceForge. This will be the last 1.0.x version; we will now concentrate on the 1.1 branch, which will end in 1.2 or 2.0. The Free Pascal Compiler is a 32-bit Pascal Compiler for AmigaOS, DOS, Linux, *BSD, OS/2 and Win32; semantically compatible with Borland Pascal 7 with additional features such as operator overloading. The compiler itself is written in Pascal.
I’m sure many of us have done at least some time in Pascal or a similar language. I remember spending some time in it back in middle school. Pascal was a great learning language back then. Now I think that Python fits that role much better, but it’s nice to know that there are some free alternatives out there if I ever want to play in Pascal again.
