Observations on FreePascal and Lazarus Development

Submitted by devblog on Thu, 07/10/2010 - 14:14

After beginning to use Lazarus more and more I there a few things I want to write about. I can't say I have studied its workings well enough, or asked around enough. Perhaps there are solutions to the issues, or there are reasons for their being the way they are, but I feel I must raise them all the same. I am welcome to any corrections or criticisms.

Does new FCL functionality need to depend on 2.5.1 compiler or LCL/IDE features?

The first point I want to raise is the matter of the FCL, the LCL and the Lazarus IDE.

Build scripts for installing FreePascal and Lazarus from source

07/10/2010 - After some rereading and some observations made in the mailing list, I have made some corrections, with notes, and added some notes to help those new to FreePascal (like myself) and those new to some of the Linux tools.

After some struggles to install Lazarus and FreePascal from source I created some scripts to set them up properly and they are working well. I think I am 90% there, enough to get me focused on programming than installing.
