And maybe Freepascal should help, but a lot of porting will be needed ....

Hello, Barry

I use Linux, although not on a regular basis. I know of 1 port of Pascal and 1 port of Delphi to Linux.

The Pascal is the one everybody knows: The Free Pascal Compiler: http://www.brain.uni-freiburg.de/~klaus/fpc/

There's also a port of Delphi to Linux, which is called The Lazarus Project. They created a Delphi-look-alike, which is still in beta stage. Neverthless, it's a good idea to take a look at their site: http://www.pcpros.net/~vbman/

And then there is the extremely expected Kylix, which is to be released in mid-2000.

Sorry, Barry. I have written very simple stuff with FPC (in both Linux and DOS), but since I never used TP7, I can't tell you. There must be something in its documentation about it.
