Please do not make such statements with a very secure proof.

Actually it can be compiled, but there's a bug (carbon and qt ws) which is fixed in trunk and will be merged to 1.2.2.

So if someone is willing to use 2.6.4 with laz 1.2 and uses carbon or qt then above patches must be applied otherwise it'll

Example how to create 64-bit program for dos. Maybe you create new target - DOS64.

Tomas Hajny:
Well, the example is interesting. However, it is not clear to me what is the environment which should be used for running this example. Is it for 16-bit MS-DOS with some 64-bit extender running on a machine with x86_64 CPU? If so, can you provide some reference for that 64-bit extender ("Adam")? Or is it a 32-bit extender, 32-bit environment (including 32-bit memory addressing, etc.) and just benefitting from possibility of 64-bit registers and operations and increased number of registers?

What is the status of the included sources (who has created them and with which licence)? Source code for the object files is not included - is there some special reason for that?

For previous versions SourceForge has provided an x86_64-linux.tar but for fpc-2.6.4 there only seems to be fpc-2.6.4.i386-linux.tar ?

Tomas Hajny:
Sorry, fixed now - the file has been available on the FTP servers but missing from SourceForge indeed.
