If you like coding in Pascal on AROS, or if you want to start doing so, you should visit ALB's blog.
blog hosts the Freepascal compilers for AmigaOS, MorphOS and AROS, some
other applications like Mapparium, GPSTool, and EdiSyn, and now he has
even added an online Pascal compiler for AmigaOS, MorphOS and AROS.
a web interface, you can enter your Pascal code, choose

older browsers (IBrowse, etc.) using HTML only.
Here's a video showing the online compiler in action:
Famous developer Kalamatee has given countless hours of his life to AROS and the community. He's worked on many essential parts of AROS and plays a big role within the AROS world. Now it looks as if it's time to give something back, as he seems to have run out of money, even threatening his facilities to keep working on AROS. Send him some money!
