Pascal and C - C++ for Android
« on: November 17, 2019, 11:06:12 pm »
Hi there people! New guy here, greetings from Argentina!

I am also very new to Pascal and programming in general, so if you could please ELI5 this for me:

I'm planning on writing a Pascal wrapper for several libraries on C - C++. I know they can be compiled together using GCC (http://alignment.hep.brandeis.edu/Software/Mixing/Mixing_Manual.html), and I also know FPC can compile for Android.

What I do not know is whether both things can be done at the same time. Could I write a Pascal + C/C++ application and compile it for Android, among other targets?

Thank you very much in advance!

So you create a pascal header for a C library, then make the pascal code a library to use with Android Studio?

Or you will compile your android application with Lazarus?

If is the second, then I think it will be more easy, since you don't need to compile a .so for Android Studio and debug it, you will debug it with Lazarus.

"Dll inception", a dll requiring another dll, never did something like that so I can't say.
