edit.pp - What Kind of Project ?
« on: September 25, 2020, 09:03:18 pm »
edit.pp is a win32 program that comes with FPC.  It doesn't use any Component Library files.  When I double-click on edit.pp, Lazarus starts up, and asks what kind of project do I want to make.  None of the options look right.  I just want to edit the source and compile with FPC.  Thanks for any suggestions>

No it does not come with FPC (find -name edit.pp returns nothing and I have all the sources, so also the win32 parts, although I am working on Linux)

Where is it located? (relative path of course) It is probably a unit , not a program. I only checked this for FPC, not for Lazarus.

There is a reason that Lazarus IDE asks what kind of application it should make.
And that reason is not that edit.pp is a unit.

Hi!

edit.pp is a little bit dusty and rusty.

It is from  fpc 2.2.0.
2006? 2007? 2008?  Around that time.
In the directory demo/win32/

This tells my harddisk to me.

It is not in the current fpc and Lazarus.

It is not in the current fpc

I beg to differ:

Code: [Select]
C:\devel>dir edit.pp /s
 Volume in drive C is Windows
 Volume Serial Number is 0C94-A215

 Directory of C:\devel\fpc\3.0.4\demo\win32

15-03-2009  13:05            13.031 edit.pp
               1 File(s)         13.031 bytes

 Directory of C:\devel\fpc\3.2.0\demo\win32

28-02-2020  17:30            12.572 edit.pp
               1 File(s)         12.572 bytes

 Directory of C:\devel\fpc\3.2.0RC1\demo\win32

15-03-2009  12:05            13.031 edit.pp
               1 File(s)         13.031 bytes

Hi!

I also beg to differ:

Neither in the dir fpcsrc nor in fpc

But I am on Linux.
Seems that the Linux users are discriminated. Again .....
( Don't take that too serious )

Ok, if that is Win-only that's OK.

I know this is the old-fashioned Windows programming method.  My intent is to add a Windows GUI to the old Turbo chess program.  I probably should use the component libraries.  I'm guessing someone from Borland did this a long time ago, because there a C++ version of this program that shipped with CBuilder that does use component libraries.  Thanks for your replies.  Sorry I didn't mention that the source is in the "demo" directory.

It's part of the demos (which is part of the fpcbuild repository) and it's included with our standard Linux installer inside the demo.tar.gz and will be installed if you answer y on the question to install demos. That said it is located in the win32 subfolder.

It's also contained in our standalone Windows installer.

yep -

Code: Bash  [Select][+][-]
  1. dbannon@dell:~/Pascal/Packages$ find ../../bin/FPC/ -name edit.pp
  2. ../../bin/FPC/fpc-3.2.0-x86_64-linux/y/win32/edit.pp

My guess is that I answered 'y' for yes when asked if I wanted the demos !
