No idea. Honest. Contrary to the common belief I've no controll over Pixel32 at all. (I don't have the sources, nor i have any controll over any decision about it.) Contact with Pavel Kanzelsberger about Pixel32. The compiler is practically capable of doing the job now. Maybe it would require a few other advancements, but really nothing which can't be done in a few hours if Pavel says yes to the port. And of course i'll be really happy to help him in doing the port (as usual, and as i always did with the MorphOS port anyway).

Maybe it would also require some advancements in SDL port for OS4, and a shared library SDL would be great, which is not public yet, but should be public Real Soon Now(tm), AFAIK.

Thanks for your great work, Chain-Q. Looking forward to playing with it and seeing what I can do with it.

Nice to see another programming language available for OS4 coders out there. It will make a fine addition to the next OS4 SDK release.

Great stuff Chain, even though I'm no Pascal programmer I'm hoping others out
there are!

Nice Work.
