Welcome to the Lazarus-CCR Knowledge-Base

About

The goal of the [1] Knowledgebase is to make all documentation for Lazarus and the Free Pascal Compiler available and searchable online. While the compiler is well documented, Lazarus has a few gaps... so this area is an "open document", or "wiki" where anyone can edit and add content. The wiki speeds things up by making it possible to make changes and additions with a browser! For a brief description of this process, please take a look at the [WikiStyle|] page. A [SandBox|] is also available for practice.

If you have any problems, please notify the site [2] or post a bug report on the [3] SF site. You can also leave a note or suggestion on our ** [SiteFeedback|]** page.

The Lazarus Documentation Project

All the available documentation and [4] for the Lazarus IDE (including the Free Pascal Compiler manuals) can be found on the **[LazarusDocumentation|]** page. Many of the pages are "works in progress" so please feel free to add your experience to these sections. Brief corrections and tips can also be appended to most pages as notes. When adding content, please add your name and what you did to the [SiteUpdateLog|]. You can also create a [PersonalPage|] with contact information, if you wish.

Downloads

All currently available components and packages are available on the **Sourceforge files area**. The Free Pascal Compiler and current test versions of Lazarus can be found at **Lazarus Sourceforge site**. Additional documentation on these packages can also be found on the ** [CodeAndComponents|] ** wiki page if the person who contributed the code created one there. The Compiler and a lot of contributed code can be found on the **Pascal Compiler download mirrors** and on the ** IDE website**.

Mail lists

New and experienced users alike are invited to join the Lazarus-ccr [5] and [6] mail lists.

Who is working on what?

If you're currently converting a component or library or you need something converted, please post it on the [CurrentProjects|] page. These postings will help guide developers who want to convert components that are in demand... and also prevent the duplicated effort of two people converting the same package.

References, Links and Resources

Lazarus IDE

News and information about the status of the Lazarus IDE can be found on the ** IDE website**. Releases of the Lazarus IDE and FreePascal compiler can be downloaded from there. The **file area** also has the latest packages of the compiler and IDE available for download.

Active Lazarus Projects

Our current listing of ** [LazarusProjects|] ** with publicly accessible websites and Lazarus related files to download.

Super Sites and Link Farms

Our current collection of Delphi/Kylix related sites can be found on our ** [PageOfCodeSites|] **. Please add to it if you know of a good site that hasn't been listed yet.

Specialized Search Engines

There are some outstanding search and knowledge bases online that can be a great help for learning new techniques and solving problems. Tamarack Associates operates a fast [7] engine specifically for the Borland usenet archives. Mer Systems Inc. provides a similar search [8]. Another outstanding source of information along with a sitewide [9] capability is Earl F. Glynn's Computer Lab and Reference [10].
