Supported architectures

SVN trunk contains support at various levels of completeness for the following architectures:

Other architectures and their status

  • Webassembly: separate branch, initial implementation only

Former ports which were removed

  • iA64/Itanium:
    • Non-compiling compiler, only some basic units for the compiler were implemented
    • Itanium has been officially discontinued as of January 30th, 2019
  • Alpha:
    • Non-compiling compiler, only some basic units for the compiler were implemented

Stalled ports

Unlikely to be ported

Resources for porting to new platforms...

... and keeping existing ones up to date.

  • FPC HowToDo - new additions requiring attention of platform maintainers
  • System unit structure - (work in progress - only skeleton finished) description of System unit internals

Cross compilation

Information about compilation for a different platform as the one running the compiler may be found in Cross compiling.
