Reference for unit 'BaseUnix'

Basic unix functionality




The system unit



Basic unix types


The BaseUnix unit was implemented by Marco Van de Voort. It contains basic unix functionality. It supersedes the Linux unit of version 1.0.X of the compiler, but does not implement all functionality of the linux unit.

People that have code which heavily uses the old Linux unit, can simply change linux by oldlinux in the uses clause of their projects, but they should really consider moving to the Unix and BaseUnix units.

For porting FPC to new unix-like platforms, it should be sufficient to implement the functionality in this unit for the new platform.
