    MIDlet Pascal is going 'open source'

    For anyone interested still in this product...

    http://midletpascal.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4235

    I can't seem to post a message on their at the moment, forgotton my Password and since changed email accounts!

    So I have re-registered and waiting for my account to be activated, as would like to link this forum together, if that was alright?

    Perhaps people will now be able to improve it's syntax support, it would be interesting if FPC adopted this as a j2me compiler..

    MIDlet Pascal is going 'open source'

    As far as I know, MIDletPascal is written in c++ :think:

    MIDlet Pascal is going 'open source'

    Taken from the thread linked above:
    "If you know someone who would be willing to continue working on MP, I would consider giving him the source code. However, such person must have experience in compiler design, C++ and Java programming, and should quickly learn basics of Java bytecode."
    Personally, I find it an embarrassment to see a pascal language written in c++/java, both languages I dislike.

    But if the C++ source code is opensourced, it could easily be ported to Pascal and maybe even show horned into the FPC compiller an additional output option.

    Not sure if it's possible, but it is food for thought.

    I doubt it is recyclable, every compiler has its own classes for symbols and system to walk trees etc. I think that porting to Pascal is not worth the trouble, at least not for the sake of FPC.

    Of course the C++ code could be a great resource if sb wanted to make a bytecode backend for FPC, but I doubt that reuse is worthwhile, compared to redoing it for FPC with the C++ printout lying next to it.

    (And that doesn't even tackle usability issues, like the fact that bytecode is a whole different field. Most non trivialexisting pascal code wouldn't compile probably due to pointer or even assembler use. Those are treated in

    Never got my log in details...thought it was a glimmer of hope. Will watch if this Open Source project takes off...

    Well I can't see this happening so far...the forums is pretty dead to new users as you cant register. Will look out for this on Sourceforge though
