Has anyone tried Freepascal for or even better ON the Zaurus already? It might be a lightweight alternative to gcc for quick development on the road.

Greetings

er, not to start a holy war... but, alas, it's pascal!

I am using g++ on the pda -- it SUCKS as a primary development
platform.. but you know what -- it does work. So, I do 99% of my stuff
off the PDA and only make minor changes, etc.

But, ya, tcc for c is awesome... even on PDA. perl is pretty good...
python is ok/not-bad... etc. Look into tcc.

Hi Scott,

well I think opensource is about freedom of choice wink.gif
I have been working on several large pascal (Delphi) projects in the last couple of years, and I think pascal is a pretty nice language (but then again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder), but you are right, no point in starting a holy war here smile.gif
I'll give freepascal on pdaxrom a try when I get some sparetime on my hands. I'll take a look at tcc though, thanks for the hint! Just wanted to know I maybe someone has tried this before.

Take care
Chris

Chris,

You're right, freedom of choice is the most important issue here. If Pascal is the language you prefer, you definitely have to give FreePascal a try. It's absolutely brilliant!

One remark though, only cross-compiling to ARM is supported at this time. So no "quick development on the road" as you said, at least not yet.

hey, don't get me wrong...
I'd rather have the choice than not!
