I have a need to write some Pascal programs, after several decades' hiatus. I downloaded a free version of Pascal from www.freepascal.org
. I also found https://www.freepascal.org/docs-html/current/user/user.html#userch2.html
My helloworld program is working nicely, but it was stored to an awkward location: C:\FPC\3.0.4\bin\i386-win3
2. Is it possible to save my files to a subdirectory?
When I start the program, I get a very old-fashioned kind of window. I can't figure out how to close a program after I've saved it (except for killing Pascal entirely).
I would rather use notepad++ for editing my programs.
There is mention of Lazarus but I don't have any experience with that. I have downloaded and installed it but am not sure what to do next with it.
