I'm trying to port a REXX CGI library from OS/2 I wrote using Virtual Pascal to Raspbian (Debian Stretch on Raspberry Pi) using Free Pascal. The URL for the following package doesn't appear to exist anymore.

Has anyone been able to write a REXX callable function in Free Pascal which will compile and is callable under ooREXX on a Raspberry Pi??

I have ooREXX 4.1.3 and FPC 3.0.4 installed on Raspbian Stretch on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.

Any help appreciated.

Yes - that's a start.

The package is also in 3.0.4 and trunk but will only be compiled for the OS/2 family of platforms.
So if you downloaded the sources for FPC, it should already contain the rexx package sourcecode as standard.
But it will not work on a Raspberry Pi because it is OS/2 specific. You can browse it, though, for documentation and porting.
