Thread: Turbo Pascal 5.5

  1. #21

    Default

    FPC is 100% compatible with Turbo Pascal and probably 98% compatible with Delphi up to the latest version (10.1 Berlin).

    I put this together last month and just haven't gotten it added to the front page yet:
    http://www.retroarchive.org/turbo/ult-trbo.zip

    Borland Pascal 7.01 with the CRT issue patched. Includes RTL source code, Robert A.H. Prins updated (more granular) system units, Async Professional, Object Professional, B-Tree Filer, Turbo Professional and one or two other things. It's about 19 megs and can be unzipped and used - you'll need to update the unit directory configuration if you don't stick with the directory names I used.

    Enjoy!

    Nice!! I've been fixing and enhancing the Technojocks Object Toolkit for the past decade, maybe I should make that available. It's about half the features of Turbo Vision, but also half the size, and a lot easier to start using.

    I've had the RTL ever since I bought BP7 on CD all those years ago; it was really educational to see what the code behind everything was. The asm code for fsearch in particular is one of my favorites.

    The only "problem" with your ult-trbo.zip distribution is that the Robert Prins system.tpu enhancements require a 386, so everything you compile with that distro is going to require a 386 or higher even if you don't use 386 instructions in your asm code. So that might be important to note somewhere. For that reason, I only use the Norbert Juffa system.tpu enhancements (and a random patched CRT replacement of unknown origin, but I try to never need CRT anyway).
    Offering a bounty for:
    - Documentation and original distribution disks for: Panasonic Sr. Partner, Corona PPC-400, Zenith Z-160 series
    - Music Construction Set, IBM Music Feature edition (has red sticker on front stating IBM Music Feature)
    - Any very old/ugly IBM joystick (such as the Franklin JS-123)

    Yeah, I completely forgot about that. I may re-spin the archive at some point to include the code that RAHP's version is built on - I don't think it requires a 386.

    What I'd like to see is TOT and TTT ported to FPC.

    Here you go: https://winworldpc.com/product/turbo-pascal/5x
    You can download other versions of Turbo Pascal from there too.

I used to do some Pascal programming on a Hewlett-Packard engineering workstation that used a Motorola processor, 68000, I think. That was in the mid 80s and wasn't object orientated. I have some books coming, but I think there used to be some sites that had libraries of routines you could download and include in your code. I think that would get me up and running quickly and them modifying them is a good way to learn.
    Would someone post a google drive link with the disk images for TP5.5?

    I'd like to get it running again.
    Thanks

    Grab this: http://www.retroarchive.org/turbo/ult-trbo.zip
    It's Borland Pascal 7.1 with updated core units so fast machines won't trip the runtime 200 error. (the libs I used means that it's 386+ only. If you want to use it on a 286 or below, I can point you to a different set of update units) It also includes a full complement of Turbo Power's Object Professional and Async Professional suites for DOS. All you need to do is set the path for where turbo.exe, etc. live and you're good.

    Do you have this in an "installable" format (the contents of the original disks)?
    It looks like what you zipped up is already installed.

    You can find Turbo Pascal 5.5 at the EDN Museum.

    Trixter: I'll be happy if you could share your additions/fixes, also i'll look for that updated system.tpu.
    I remember using a old russian origin patch for Turbo/Borland pascal with lot of fixes and upgrades, if i can recall it, it had syntax prediction and completion, and other things... Maybe i still have it in my old BP7 installation.
