Just for curiosity @popolony2k, does FreePacal compile in Z80?

About your change in the framework I understand that TP 3.3 included some improvements, so probably is a good solution. In C there was great project, Solid-C, but unfortunately couldn't be finished. This is not the case so, why not?

About your framework in general, did you include Kari Lamassari libraries or you decided to do them from scratch? I remember it implemented several features like memory mapper, sound libs, etc.

Thanks!

Comparing the code quality between Kari's library and Popolony's library: I would vote: he made them from scratch.

As rolandve wrote above, yes I made this framework 100% from scratch. In fact, use Kari's for while is an option but at this point I have the biggest part of their functionalities already implemented inside my framework.

I want to start add graphics support to my framework....maybe will be next big deal.

Hi Popolony2k,

Good to see you're still alive. I've read your blog and read that you modified the pascal compiler in a few ways for performance reasons. If that is correct: how about sharing that version? It looked to me like some good changes.

I feel like, you can choose which structure you prefer. The developers can then use the include's like they want. Its a comfort thing. A small change that can be considered comfort: your framework is extensive and covers a lot of functions. When you want to use your framework, you will have to dig in, read all the dependencies and experiment with the code.
If you make simple examples that show how the framework is to be used, that saves a lot of time for the developers.

I'm very interested in the further development of Freepascal as a cross-compiler for z80. Which compiler produces the most efficient code (from speed or size perspective).

Thanks by structure feedback. About the source code of my TP modification, I'll try to share this in some way to avoid Copyright infringments by Embarcadero/Borland.

About examples of using the framework, I'm adding some samples, recently I've added maprtest.pas (https://sourceforge.net/p/oldskooltech/code/HEAD/tree/msx/tr...) that explain how to use the MSXDOS2 BIOS mapper based routines.

I think that reordering everithing in subdirectories will help to keep the things easier to find.
